Maggie waltzed her way into the wine industry in 2019 (she’ll admit it was an accident) and didn’t take long to be completely enamored by the wine world. She began working as Bridgit Griessel’s assistant as a side gig while she pursued her true passion: dance! Born and raised in Washington state, Maggie spent most of her childhood in dance studios training across many genres since the age of three. She went on to perform and compete for the University of Washington Cheer & Dance Team while studying Communication and LSJ (Law, Societies, & Justice). After experiencing the thrill of performing for thousands of fans on Husky game-days, she wasn’t quite ready to hang up the poms after graduating and eventually went on to audition for the Seahawks Dancers. Spending 2019 on the sidelines of CenturyLink Field proved to be a defining year as she fulfilled her lifelong dream of dancing professionally!
While kicking off her professional dance career, Maggie worked up the hill from Betz Family Winery and her curiosity led to her poking her nose around the winery during the 2019 harvest. After asking a million questions and reading through a stack of books from the winemaking team, it became obvious she had stumbled upon a newfound interest. She joined the Betz team in 2020 as the Customer Service Manager and loves assisting our members while expanding her own wine knowledge. Look out for her on the sidelines and the big screen at Seahawks games and we can’t wait to see where Maggie’s wine journey takes her!
