Strategic Projects Manager, Empson USA Inc.; Global Wine Executive MBA, Sonoma State University
Martha graduated with honors from James Madison University in 2007 with a B.S. degree; majoring in Business Management and minoring in Nonprofit Studies.
As a member of the Empson USA Inc. team, she has been afforded the incredible opportunity to learn from a family owned importer with an extensive history as a pioneer in the import wine & spirits industry. Her interest and passion for facilitating the sale and appreciation of wine and spirits has been perpetuated by continuous education. She is both a Certified Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers and a Certified Specialist of Wine through the Society of Wine Educators. In the Fall of 2019, she will begin the inaugural Global Wine Executive MBA Program in the Wine Business at Sonoma State University. She is excited to continue learning and growing as beverage innovation built on a foundation of rich agricultural history and artistry is what makes this industry so exciting and fascinating.
