Sara is one of the original compliance specialists in the alcoholic beverage industry. Since 1983 she has advised and assisted clients with compliance matters, and trained many winery personnel and compliance professionals. She was the first to successfully automate compliance reporting. Her experience is broad and deep and her ability to find creative solutions to regulatory problems is renowned; for example, under her leadership CSA licensed the first Alternating Proprietorship winery in California and paved the way for this now-popular way of operating. Her intelligence and care has become a trademark of CSA. Currently in emeritus status, Sara continues to advise the rest of CSA's staff.
