Susan started Market Alley Wines in 2011 with a familiar entrepreneurial dream: to be her own boss and to do something she loved.
Along the journey of the last six years, some amazing things happened:
She created a “third place” for Monmouth and regional locals to hang out, make friends, explore wine and laugh and talk.
She learned that there is a LOT to learn about wine, and she’s always going to be learning and tasting new things.
She has learned how to run a successful small business in a rural community surrounded by corn and beans.
She has seen, first hand, just how wonderful, essential and amazing her customers are. They always surprise her.
She wakes up everyday with joy in her heart, gratitude on her mind and a true excitement about going to work everyday.
