For 4 years Sara has utilized her clinical experiences to help wineries shift the behaviors of their purchasers. Her passion for the power of data and natural curiosity are her superpowers when working with Emetry’s clients to develop relevant answers wineries can act on. When not embroiled in winery data, the California native can be found hiking in the beautiful California landscape. Sara is also an avid (and talented) crochetier and fan of Dr. Who.
