New York Spotlight:
 Brittany Gibson, Executive Director, Seneca Lake Wine Trail
Raw. Real. Riveting. Interviews.
I was a first generation college student and attended Ithaca College, assuming I was on the path to law school. I was working as a paralegal and prepping for the LSATs when I was sidelined by a lengthy illness, which resulted in a lupus diagnosis in 2007. That gave me some time (and good reason) to re-evaluate my path. I decided that maybe I could take the business and marketing background from my undergrad and apply it to the wine industry, where I had been working at Fulkerson Winery in what had – up to that point – just been a fun weekend job.
