Gwen has been self employed for many years. In 2017 she started Miracle Plum, a neighborhood market and natural wine bar with her business partner Sallie Miller.
Prior to opening Miracle Plum she worked as an artisan woodworker under the name Hendley Hard Goods, and has specialized in making one-of-a-kind items for the kitchen and food preparation.
She has operated a small catering business, Born and Raised, which showcased local ingredients at farm to table dinners and special events. This love of food, cooking, and feeding people has carried her through all of her work.
The Miracle Plum brick and mortar closed at the end of 2022 but the brand lives on as Sonoma County natural wine pioneers and club, Commercial Kitchen managers, and wine, food, and business consultants.
