FRANCINE DOWNEY | Office Manager

Francine Downey | Advanced Vineyard Systems, Inc. | OregonFrancine Downey joined the Advanced Vineyard Systems team in December 2011. She is a transplant from the Sunflower State, born and raised in Wichita, Kansas. Francine graduated from nearby Butler County Community College in El Dorado, KS. She has three passions: books, reading and books — as long as they are mysteries. Having completed more than a decade of service as a member of the Kansas Air National Guard stationed at Wichita’s McConnell Air Base, she decided to see what the rest of the United States looked like.   
Francine moved to Bellingham, WA in the early 90s and explored Puget Sound. Then she tried Florida but its endless hot days and high humidity sent her back to the cool opposite corner of the country where she settled in Skagit County, WA. She was employed by Shell Puget Sound Refinery in Anacortes, WA. She became responsible for tracking crude oil receipts and finished product shipments for the entire refinery and processed shipments and billing. The working environment within a major oil refinery such as Shell’s was extremely technical, complex and challenging.
When Francine met her husband, Howard, at a local public library that he was managing, they decided to relocate to the Oregon Coast upon his retirement about five years ago. So, off to Astoria they went after she secured a position coordinating all the business office functions at Pacific Coast Medical Supply in Astoria. Unfortunately, the current recession hit hard in Astoria, the company downsized and by late 2011, her position was eliminated.
Francine and Howard then decided to take her extensive office and computer skills south to McMinnville - a thriving Willamette Valley community they had come to appreciate after several earlier visits. She is enjoying her new position as Office Manager at Advanced Vineyard Systems, Inc., and is learning more about the wine industry on a daily basis.
