Kate Mallam - Office Manager

Kate was born and raised in Minneapolis Minnesota.  While earning her bachelors degree in Psychology, it was a semester in Cannes, France that opened her eyes to the culture of food and wine.  She packed her car and headed west July of 2006 and only looked back briefly...twice.  Kate joined the Porter Family team in August of 2015 and wears many hats ranging from tours and accounting to beekeeping and dog sitting.  Everyone needs a Kate!
