City you live in: Cabo San Lucas
My favorite thing about Cabo is… Being able to be outside every single day. The sun, the beach, the people, the food. It just simply can’t be beat, there’s something magic about this place.
A typical day in my life includes… Wake up and go for my morning hike with my best friend and our dogs, work (office, checking guests into villas, yachts, golf courses, etc), vetting new activities (someone’s gotta do it!), lunch with friends, more work and then back to the family to make dinner….or order in! Repeat.
I was born in… Vancouver, Canada. It is such a beautiful city but once you have the sun every day there’s no going back.
I’m listening to… Lana del Rey, everything EDM, Ariana Grande (don’t judge me, or do… she’s amazing), and forever Selena Quintanilla.
My Family… Is the best. My dad is Mexican and my mom is a Canadian mix of Ukrainian, Irish/Scottish – no wonder I enjoy a good cocktail! Growing up in a bi-racial family was amazing and it’s been cool for my dad to have come from Mexico to Canada and then help me move back to where he came from. They’re all in Canada so I miss them all the time but luckily they visit often ?!
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… Michelle Wolf, Jim Jeffries and John Oliver – Preferably all at once although I doubt I’d eat much because my food would constantly be flying out of my mouth while laughing…. Or maybe Kim Kardashian so I could learn how to chew and still look pretty….
One thing I cannot live without… Travel. Although I love my city, I need to shake it up often and see new things. That’s what life is all about, we need to explore!
When I was younger, I wanted to be… A singer. Selena was my idol and my dad taught me all her songs in Spanish so I could perform them at my local talent shows. It didn’t pan out but you will still catch me and my friends at Esteban’s Karaoke Bar in Cabo pretending like we still have a shot ?.
I’m inspired by… My boyfriend Cooper. He is the most patient, intelligent, funny human being I know and he inspires me to be the best version of myself every single day. I adore that man.
The one person who motivates me is… I want to say one person but I have an incredible tribe of women in my inner circle and we motivate each other daily to accomplish our goals, support one another, be vulnerable, be strong, explore our creative ideas, the list goes on. I couldn’t be more grateful for the love and support I receive from them and from Cooper. #grateful
If I could change anything in the world, it would be… The time and money it takes to visit other countries! Teleportation would be nice if someone could get on that… Oh, and of course – world peace.
The perfect day would be… Anything that includes a road trip, chilaquiles, my little family and the beach.
My first job… I worked as a hostess at one of the local restaurants in my hometown when I was 15. I was fired for not smiling when I answered the phone which is ridiculous, smiling’s my favorite.
My favorite escape… I love packing up the car and heading out for a weekend away in the East Cape, it is extraordinarily beautiful and peaceful and really allows for the opportunity to unplug.
My life… Is it cheesy to say “is blessed”? I couldn’t imagine it being any more beautiful but I strive daily to allow that beauty to continue to grow.
I’m currently working on… Self improvement, always. Also, expanding my role within Cabo Luxury as we continue to grow, moving into a new home, planning a trip this fall for my mom’s 65th birthday, preparing for a self/spiritual growth seminar in LA this summer, and a few surprise projects I can hopefully share soon!
Always… Be the good. You never know what someone else could be going through or how much of a difference a smile can make.
Never… Say never!
My Pet Peeve(s)… People chewing loudly…
My Biggest Dream… My biggest goal is to have absolute freedom to travel wherever I’d like, whenever I’d like. My biggest dream is a house made of candy, and to fly.
Favorite Quote… My dad told me every morning before school “Be good. Do good.” I think it still works ?. I also like “Adventure is out there!” – UP (Disney Classic!!)
