This week on The People of PlumpJack we feature Marketing Manager at The Carneros Inn, Jacqi Almond. She has been with The Carneros Inn for nine months, and has worked in the Napa Valley resort industry for eight years. For Jacqi one of the greatest parts of her job is the ability to share the property and connect with people who haven’t had the opportunity to experience it yet.
Originally from Woodbridge, Virgina, Jacqi lives in Santa Rosa. She is an avid football fan and always roots for the Washington Redskins. When she’s not working, you can find Jacqi reading and running, she has run over 15 half marathons, marathons and ultra relays. This upcoming July she is reregistered for the Napa to Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon. Clearly a disciplined women, Jacqi has a personal goal to read 100 books this year. One of her favorites is Zero to One by Peter Thiel. We hope you enjoy getting to know Jacqi a little more in this weeks post on The People of PlumpJack.
