In honor of Women’s History Month this March, we are featuring some of the women who make up Virtue Cider. These women work in production, commercial, and farming operations; all are a part of every glass of Virtue Cider. Take a moment to learn a bit about what they all do, and if you see any of them at Virtue, please say hello! Here is Corrie Wolosin, one of our regional sales leads.
Corrie Wolosin, Regional Sales Lead
How long have you been at Virtue Cider and what is your role?
I have been at Virtue Cider since September 2017. I have worked as the West Michigan sales lead, and recently moved to Tacoma, WA, to open up new markets for Virtue in Washington, Oregon and California.
What is your background?
I grew up in South Bend, IN, but spent most of my adult life in the Lebanon, NH, area. I spent the early part of my career in higher then began working with a small orchard-based cidermaker and grower on the VT/NH border in 2007. I was part of a small team that helped found the United States Association of Cider Makers and have seen the cider industry grow and change over the last decade-plus.
What do you like about working at Virtue Cider?
Every day is different so I’m never bored.
Any comment you’d like to give about being a female in your industry.
Women are great multi-taskers and relationship-builders – two primary qualities for successful sales people. It’s been really fun having more female colleagues in the Pacific Northwest. There’s a genuine desire to help each other succeed and learn together.
• What’s your favorite cider?
Virtue Lapinette or Oakley. Anything Farnum Hill.
• Fun fact:
Roller derby skater under the alias “Apple Corrie.”
Stay tuned for our next installment of Women of Virtue! International Women’s Day is March 8.
