Tristyne started working in the service industry while attending Oregon State University to complete her Education and Health and Development of Family Sciences bachelor degrees. In the summer of 2013, she leased a bistro with her husband out of Saturna Island Family Estate Winery in the Gulf Islands, where they created and served five-course wine-pairing dinners featuring the island’s best wines. She also spent six years working at Maurices where she was trained on all things sales and customer service as a floor manager. After graduating, she spent six years as an elementary teacher, teaching primarily 3rd and 4th grade. Meanwhile, you could find her helping her husband on a busy Saturday at Armstrong Family Winery in the Walla Walla tasting room.
She spends most of her time at WISE scheduling and communicating with coaches and attendees and mystery shoppers, but she can be found bringing her teaching experience into the WISE classroom as well.
Tristyne lives in Eastern Washington with her husband and two kids. Tristyne can be found on weekends pouring wine at Tertulia Cellars, driving tours for the Walla Walla Wine Limo, or skating as her alter ego, BootyFul Disaster, with the Walla Walla Sweets Rollergirls, where she is a member of the board. She also loves to travel, spending a lot of time with her family in Central Oregon and the Willamette Valley.
