You often hear talk of women hitting the glass ceiling as they climb the ladder to career success. It takes a rare woman to shatter that ceiling. Yet that is exactly what today’s Across the Table Guest did.

Ashley Thompson sat down with Beth Ormseth at JJ’s Wine Spirits & Cigars and discovered that she didn’t climb the ladder to success, instead she zig-zagged her way to a position of leadership.

At JJ’s they like to say they provide “an enhanced adult beverage experience” and we think that’s just perfect to sum up the great food and drink and the great people you’ll run into at JJ’s Wine, Spirits and Cigars.
