Meet Some New TWC Faces!

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about how TWC is balancing old and new…maintaining what’s always made us a favorite in the Texas Hill Country while making room for new experiences and adventures. Part of this balance involves welcoming new teammates into our TWC family.

Read on to meet three of our newer team members. Then, challenge yourself with a quiz about them (answers at the bottom…no cheating!).

While she’s not native to Texas as she was born in California, Alison Etter, also known as Ali, got here as quickly as she could when she was 10 years old. She was born the year that Andy Warhol died and Cherry Garcia (MY favorite ice cream back in the day!) was created. If she could start a club, it would be a book club for music therapists. When Alison’s not drinking wine, she drinks lots of water…obviously to prepare for her wine drinking!

Shanae Haynes, aka Sunshine or Shanae-nae, grew up in the middle of nowhere in Missouri and drove to Texas in search of warm weather and new faces. She certainly found both here! If she were to start a club, it would be called “Sips, Sails, and Puppy Dog Tails” and would focus on, you guessed it, wine, travel, and dogs (Can I join this club??). If she could eat only one food for the rest of her life, it would be tacos: breakfast tacos, lunch tacos, dinner tacos, dessert tacos…all paired with sparkling wine.

Sherilyn Weis started her tenure here as a TWC Wine Club member and couldn’t resist joining our team. While she goes by Sheri, she quickly earned the nickname “One Arm” here at the Collective (Ask around for that story!). An Army brat, she ended up serving in the Army and marrying a soldier, so she’s lived in many places. But when it was time for him to retire, her husband chose Texas. Sheri drinks a little of everything when not drinking wine: coffee, tea, beer, whiskey. Her club would focus on good food, good drink, and great conversation.

So how well do you think you know Alison, Shanae, and Sheri? Try this little quiz:

1) Which of these new TWC teammates says that her first concert was Van Morrison and her go-to dance move is the Mashed Potato?

a) Alison
b) Shanae
c) Sheri

2) Who saw the Backstreet Boys’ Millennium tour…and would do it again?

a) Alison
b) Shanae
c) Sheri

3) Who has seen ZZ TOP but wouldn’t want to again now that Dusty Hill has passed away?

a) Alison
b) Shanae
c) Sheri

4) Who might you find two-stepping after she’s enjoyed a cocktail or two?

a) Alison
b) Shanae
c) Sheri

5) Whose go-to dance move is playing air guitar?

a) Alison
b) Shanae
c) Sheri

6) Whose life story would be titled “Another Trip Around the Sun”?

a) Alison
b) Shanae
c) Sheri

7) This team member’s biography would be a songbook called Traveling the World and Hugging All the Trees.

a) Alison
b) Shanae
c) Sheri

Whether you passed the quiz or not, I hope you’ll take time to get to know some of our new teammates next time you’re visiting the Collective. And if you know of anyone who wants to join a fun team, send them our way. We’re always looking to add great people to our TWC family!

 

And now you can look at the answers:

1) c (and she’d love to see Van Morrison again!)
2) a
3) b
4) b
5) a
6) c
7) a
