I’m looking forward to learning more about you and your business and configuring how a partnership with JBW can help to reach your business goals. Being a new mom, I am mindful of a work and family balance, so I am flexible to working around your schedule as needed. Although, on the weekends it will be a little harder to reach me, as I’m typically drinking a glass of Pinot noir at my aunt’s winery in Ellis County.
