About sommelier jessica michaud
Jess has been passionate about food ever since her first trip abroad to Switzerland at the age of 13. While there, she often went grocery shopping and cooked meals with her host family, a routine that she enthusiastically recreated with her own family when she returned home. Shortly thereafter, Jess started working in restaurants, eventually pursuing a degree in food science and nutrition at the University of New Hampshire and the University of Maine, Orono. After graduation, Jess continued to seek out jobs at various restaurants and catering companies within the area. She has recently moved into the field of wine distribution, selling for Pine State Beverage in Maine. Jess is also involved with the community, chairing Seacoast Share Our Strength, a nonprofit organization that hosts Taste of the Nation and Share Your Love dinners to raise money to feed local children in need.
