Meet Our Mixologists
My passion for food and wine has turned into a successful twenty-five-year career in the hospitality industry. I learned the restaurant business intricacies from two icons in the industry: Erwin Doebeli and John Bishop. I worked at The William Tell, Il Giardino, Bishop’s, C, Hotel Vancouver and The Wedgewood, all well-known for their exceptional customer service and their unique concepts. I am a veteran of the hospitality industry and through the years have worked at all levels of restaurants in many positions from server, sommelier, F & B Director to being a restaurant owner. Micheline’s Restaurant was a nominee for best restaurant of the year by the BCRFA in 1995. I received the Victoria Hospitality Award for ‘Service Excellence’ from Tourism Victoria in 1996. I am a well-known educator and wine expert and have appeared in various media such as EAT and Monday magazines, Times Colonist newspaper, The Province online news, and television. I offer innovative training concepts, and I have developed the visual cocktail recipe format. I created and self-published ‘The Visual Bartender Guide’, a reference book for bartenders that is used in restaurants, bars, and in the bartending training course at Camosun College, Victoria.
