If you would like to learn more about Suzette Ledet, here is her short biography. 

My name is Suzette Ledet from New Orleans, Louisiana and I have always had a great love for wine. After moving to Seattle, WA due to my home being displaced by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, I decided to make a career change.  With three degrees under my belt, I decided to pursue my passion and studied Wine Technology!  I enrolled at the Northwest Wine Academy and completed Wine and Food Pairing and Wine Marketing Certificates. I plan to advance my credentials to the next levels with Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET), Court of Master Sommeliers (MS) and Society of Wine Educators (SWE).
