Emma Mcneilly

Assistant Director of Catering

Having grown up in Sonoma, working at one of Napa's most well-known resorts feels like the right fit. Emma started her hospitality career at a young age helping her father with events at a Sonoma Square Restaurant and planning tea parties, much to her younger sister's dismay. After graduating Saint Mary's College of California with a BA in Communication, Emma moved down to Los Angeles and interned with a Bridal Stylist, giving her the opportunity to further her interest in the Wedding Market.
