Kathleen Hall Smith, DipWSET, Instructor
In 2006, after spending ten years in the NYC financial industry, Kathleen was looking for a new adventure and signed up for a WSET class at International Wine Center. It was love at first sip and a career change quickly followed. She attained her WSET Diploma in Wine & Spirits in 2014, has completed the WSET Educator Training Program in both Wine & Sake, and has held positions as Wine Manager, Head Sommelier, Sales Consultant, Wine Buyer and Educator.
Kathleen has recently returned from living in Hong Kong where she was Manager of the Education Department and Wine, Spirits and Sake Instructor at a prestigious wine school. She is excited to be back at the International Wine Center and looks forward sharing her passion for wine, spirits and sake with the students of IWC.
