Oce (pronounced “oh-she”) grew up in the small town of Occidental, California, before venturing north to live out her college days as a Wildcat on the green grounds of Chico State. Her passion for art, literature and history drew her towards a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities.
Following graduation, Oce crossed the pond to The Emerald Isle, spending two years on organic farms and as a florist in Kilkenny, Ireland, combining her love of rich history and hospitality.
Upon her return to the Bay Area, she found herself in a similar line of work at Healdsburg SHED, before joining up with the team at Wilson Artisan Wineries. Although Oce later moved on to a Catering Manager role with Sage Catering, she just couldn’t stay away and returned to Wilson as its Assisting Lodging Manager at the start of 2017.
The homecoming was definitely a wise one for Oce, as it reunited her with a few of her favorite wines, including deLorimier’s Primitivo & Wilson’s Molly Zin.
Away from the office, Oce loves to spend time in Hawaii and with family. A few of her other favorite hobbies include art, reading, gardening, floral arranging and traveling, with Venice, Italy being one of her favorite global hot spots thus far.
