Serving California's Central Coast with Fine Service and Events since 1996


A 24-year veteran of the food and beverage service industry, I joined The Cliffs team in July, 2008. As manager of the seaside resorts Marisol Restaurant, I am  responsible for overseeing all aspects of the dining room and bar area, including reservations, staffing, and service.

With my energy, attention to detail, and excellent communication skills I was recognized at an early age, and quickly launched myself into the bustling restaurant industries of Key West, South Beach, and San Francisco. Locally, my considerable experience has encompassed everything from being general manager at Giuseppe's Cucina to general manager at Clautiere Winery, from dining room manager at Deborah's Room at Justin Winery to server and host of Alloro Restaurant. I have also helped organized events with a number of top notch chefs: Charlie Paladin-Wayne, Rochelle Harringer, and Chef Gregg Wangard to name a few.

I arrived on the Central Coast in 1999 with his best friend Garth, a gregarious yellow Labrador, and the two of us were constant companions for all of Garth's 14 years. Now, the four-footed shoes in my life are filled by felines Jasper, Buddy, and Sweetheart, and the four of us make our home is Shell Beach, where I am active in community events, especially Chamber of Commerce activities. I also helped organize and manage Eric Howe's bid for mayor of Pismo Beach, and am currently on the board of Palate to Pallet, an annual event showcasing local chefs and food to raise donations for the San Luis Obispo Food Bank.
