Carson started out with McConnell as a summer intern, and was quickly brought in as our Tasting Room and Marketing Manager. She really makes McConnell Estates feel like home for all of our guests, from the moment they walk in by sharing “the McConnell experience.” Carson is the talented hand behind our growing online presence and the artist of the perfect chalkboards everyone talks about. You will find Carson logging all of our special moments and events through pictures, educating staff and guests behind the bar and in action at all of our events. She’s a great asset to our team!
