Since childhood Marilyn has been influenced by food and wine. Her Irish grandmother was the owner/chef of a very successful restaurant and pub and her Italian grandmother lived on a small farm nearby where she made her own wine. Though hardly award winning, the wine was a cherished part of family gatherings.

After receiving a BS from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst ,Marilyn began her professional career as a Food and Beverage Manager for Marriott Host International in Boston. She proved to be a quick study and became known for her knowledge of the food and beverage industry. Marilyn was asked to be the wine educator on the web site "BellaOnline; the Voice of Women on the Web." She educated a diverse group of members on topics ranging from grape varietals and wine regions to food and wine pairings. She also contributed food and wine articles to assorted publications. Marilyn then developed wine lists and wine events for several local businesses. Her knowledge comes from both personal and professional experiences and she takes pride in the fact that she attended the Sterling School of Service and Hospitality and the International Wine Center in NYC.

As a Los Angeles transplant via Boston, Marilyn became the Sommelier at Upstairs 2 in late 2006. Here she stewards the wine program where her focus is on pleasing the palate of the novice as well as the wine expert. With an ever changing wine list, as well as 50 wines by the glass, Marilyn always has something new to taste. She also hosts a weekly Wine and Dine Wednesday that features food and wine pairings from around the world as well as wine education.
