Born in Vermont and a member of the Abenaki Tribe. At age 26, I put myself through an associate’s program for radiation protection by working 2 jobs. I created MarCellar’s Vintage Wines & Brews in 1995, still in operation, and incorporated MarCom, LLC in 2003. I sit on the Advisory Board for IWBC and the board for IF Arts Council. I am an obsessed home cook and a lover of all things four-legged.
