Meet the Sipp Team


Beth Wilson-Parentice

President/Founder

 Beth's idea and ultimately the creation of Sipp came from her love for entertaining and making delicious cocktails for friends and family. After friends constantly telling her she could bottle and sell her concotions, Beth decided to take a chance and pursue her dreams - and Sipp was born! Coming from many years in the food & beverage industry, Beth's creative side and entrepreneurial spirit continues to fuel the spirit of Sipp every day. Read Beth's entire story here!

Carly Garcia

Communications Manager 

Carly graduated from West Chester University in May 2013 and was lucky enough to get connected to Sipp as the part-time Sales & Marketing Assistant soon after -- the 2nd employee at Sipp! She really enjoys what she does everyday at work, which is almost never the same. Carly loves new experiences, challenges, and working for a brand that is growing rapidly and successfully. It's fun for her to come up with different ideas to get the Sipp name out there and see people's initial reaction to the brand (which is almost always positive!). She is looking forward to growing with Sipp and can't wait to see what the future holds.
