A Really Goode Job
Join us in congratulating Roosevelt and Lauren, our #AReallyGoodeJob winners!
Roosevelt Johnson looks forward to transitioning from a career in B2B sales to the wine industry. Roosevelt applied for A Really Goode Job in 2021 and was one of 17 finalists, but was not selected for one of the final two positions. He threw his hat in the ring again and became the comeback story of the 2022 campaign. “Through adversity is where I find what I’m truly capable of. Murphy-Goode lit a fire in me last year and in between both campaigns I grabbed every resource I could to continue learning and preparing to make my dream a reality.” Roosevelt earned his Wine 101 certificate from the Napa Valley Wine Academy in 2021 and completed WSET Level 1 and 2 in July 2022 and is eager to continue building his experience as a wine professional.

Lauren Neil will be joining Murphy-Goode following her role as a sales director for a senior living property in Reno. In addition to leveraging her sales experience, Lauren is ready to get her hands dirty during her first harvest with winemaker Dave Ready Jr., not far from her hobbies of gardening and taking care of horses. “People are my passion and wine is one of the wonderful things in life that can bring people together. I can’t wait to get started in September and learn from the Murphy-Goode team.”
