Previously, Morse owned and operated Lucy Berry Bakeshop and served as an event manager for the Distilled Spirits Council and the Society of Wine Educators. During her time at the AFIA, she was a meetings and event manager. Morse holds a bachelor’s degree in English literature from the University of St. Thomas and a master’s degree in English literature from Georgetown University.
