Colby's primary focus is as the Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Concierge Alliance of Napa Valley. She also operates a private Concierge service, Wine Country Access
, providing her clients with very special access to wineries and other venues, customized for their unique interests, and wine experience. Prior to that she was at the Concierge Desk of Villagio Inn & Spa for almost 4 years.
But, what was she doing before she moved to Napa Valley?
Colby has worked as a business, marketing and communications consultant for over 20 years.
She founded and ran a web development company in 1995 until 2006. She has strategized web projects for both corporate and start-up companies integrating web marketing, branding and revenue models. Because of her prior marketing background her focus was helping her clients use the web to maximize their marketing objectives.
She's been a speaker on “Relationship Marketing” at many business conferences.
Prior to her involvement in the Internet, Colby owned a Public Relations firm in New York, which represented a range of image conscious clients nationally and internationally, including Gianni Versaci and Revillon Furs, jewelry and cosmetics firms and a variety of top restaurants.
Earlier in Los Angeles she was active in the film industry for many years as Production Manager and Producer for both feature films and commercials. She's been an actress, model, and even a stunt woman!
Colby has authored a series of audio cassettes on "Managing Change & Transition", and another called "Divorce-Where Do I Grow From Here".
When she moved to Napa, she found a wonderful little house in the middle of the vineyards and is enjoying the finches, quail and her two Birman cats, Sedona & Merlin. "Life is grand."
