Her love for Spain started as a second grader in an after-school Spanish program and continues today as an amateur flamenco dancer with Portland Flamenco Events. In 2013, while studying flamenco in Jerez, Seana fell in love with sherry. She has been obsessed ever since.

When she’s not traveling or dancing, Seana can be found helping with production at Enso Winery, exploring new restaurants with her husband, and volunteering as a committee member with Partners of the Americas: Oregon/Costa Rica Student Exchange.
