Bio

Susan Montgomery has been the Treasurer of IFWTWA for the past four years. In this position, she establishes an annual budget (with Board approval) and monitors the budget throughout the year, making sure that Income and Expenses are in line with projected amounts. She also monitors the association’s financial statements on a monthly basis and ensures that taxes are filed on a timely basis.

Susan has been a member of IFWTWA for more than 6 years and posts articles regularly on her site, Life-Uncorked.com, where she focuses on food and wine. She also publishes articles in other publications.

Susan has a Master’s Degree in Journalism and has been a writer/publisher throughout her career. For many years in Wisconsin, she owned and managed her own publishing company. She has written and published three books. When she moved to California, she started writing about food and wine and joined IFWTWA. In 2016, Susan and her husband, Todd (a photographer who is also an IFWTWA member) chaired IFWTWA’s successful 2016 Annual Professional Development Conference in Coronado, California.

Susan loves belonging to IFWTWA and says, “IFWTWA has had a positive impact on my food, wine and travel writing endeavors. I appreciate the professional contacts and support that I continue to receive from other members.”
