Meet The Team.
Lisa T. Level II Sommelier
Originally from Southern California, Sommelier Lisa Tussing got her start with wine while working for Trader Joe's during university. After graduating from Arizona State University, she worked on perfecting her craft, eventually landing at La Quinta Resort & Club's sister property, the Arizona Biltmore.
Morgan's general manager John Healy met Lisa while staying at AZB, and realized that Morgan's would be the perfect stepping stone for Lisa's career.
With her Level 2 Sommelier certification, Lisa is a welcome addition to the team at CorkHero. Her goal is to elevate wine tasting by using her in-depth knowledge to add award-worthy wines to our great selection.
