Who We Are

Jude Johnson
Resident Manager

A native of Sonoma County, Jude has been with the Calderwood Inn 2018, after running restaurants in Sonoma Jude wanted a change! She sought out our little Inn and has been the hostess with the mostest ever since!

An avid fan of summers on the lake with friends, Jude particularly enjoys hosting her family for large dinners. She is an amazing cook and we are sure you will enjoy all of her recipes!

She loves attending Food & Wine Pairing Events, as well as dinners at Dry Creek Kitchen with the girls and a bottle of deLorimier’s Estate Chardonnay.  For dessert, some of her fantastic chocolate truffles are a treat!

Rebecca Fitzgerald
Head Chef

Originally from Santa Fe, NM, Rebecca joined the Calderwood Inn team last year after working in the Larder at SHED, being a breakfast chef at the Healdsburg Inn, and serving as a personal chef for two families in Healdsburg. Her first cooking gig was for a whitewater rafting company on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho, followed by cooking on boats in the Caribbean and finally owning her own ocean expedition company based in the Bahamas. Her company called Dolphinswim, took guests to swim with pods of wild dolphins and whales all over the Bahamas and Dominican Republic.

After 16 years on a boat, she  returned to the States and decided that next to swimming with wild cetaceans, cooking was the most enjoyable thing for her to do. She attended cooking school in Austin, TX, and then began cooking for private clients in Santa Fe and finally wound up in Healdsburg 5 years ago.

Her passions include swimming, illustrating children’s books, drinking St. Anne’s Crossing Petite Sirah or one of Chris Barrett’s Chardonnays and writing limericks.  Ask her – she will write one for you!!

Oce Ingram
Lodging Manager

Oce (pronounced “oh-she”) grew up in the small town of Occidental, California, before venturing north to live out her college days as a Wildcat on the green grounds of Chico State. Her passion for art, literature and history drew her towards a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities.

Following graduation, Oce crossed the pond to The Emerald Isle, spending two years on organic farms and as a florist in Kilkenny, Ireland, combining her love of rich history and hospitality.

Upon her return to the Bay Area, she found herself in a similar line of work at Healdsburg SHED, before joining up with the team at Wilson Artisan Wineries.  Although Oce later moved on to a Catering Manager role with Sage Catering, she just couldn’t stay away and returned to Wilson as its Assisting Lodging Manager at the start of 2017.

The homecoming was definitely a wise one for Oce, as it reunited her with a few of her favorite wines, including deLorimier’s Reserve Chardonnay & Wilson’s Buzz Zin.

Away from the office, Oce loves to spend time in Hawaii and with family.  A few of her other favorite hobbies include art, reading, gardening, floral arranging and traveling, with Venice, Italy being one of her favorite global hot spots thus far.

Tim Polk
Reservations Supervisor

A Sonoma County resident for more than 19 years, this self-proclaimed “Midwest boy” (he’s an Ohio native) joined Wilson Artisan Wineries in early 2018 after having worked at boutique hotels and small inns in both Sonoma and Napa counties for more than 10 years.

Tim enjoys cooking, is an avid home gardener, and loves to traverse local farmers markets in search of the freshest produce and unique-to-Sonoma-County cheeses, honey, smoked salmon and other food products. He also loves to chat about craft cocktails, and is on a quest to create—and drink—the perfect martini.

He lives in nearby Santa Rosa with his wife and two daughters. Does he have a favorite Wilson Artisan Wineries wine? Yes! The 2014 Wilson “Sydney” Petite Sirah, which he loves to pair with his homemade marinara sauce and homemade meatballs.
