This has been a long, windy road; but, now I am here, right where I was always meant to be. Let me start by giving you a quick peek at who I am when I’m not at work. Well, I guess, in a way, I’m always sorta at work – a CEO's work is never done :)) But, actually, my time is blessed with all of our kids, and my very own Prince Charming. He is the backbone of what I do, allowing me to be crazy, passionate about all of this, and still be the mom that I want to be. I grew up here, and I still can’t imagine ever living anywhere else. Why would I? We’ve got the desert, the mountains, the beaches, the desert – oh wait, did I already say the desert – I might be partial. I think growing up here does something to you – it’s beautiful. My grandparents lived in Laguna Beach, and I spent my summers surrounded by the ocean and the local art scene. Having lived in historic homes, an Eichler and now in mid-century modern home in North Tustin.
I was working in corporate America; I found myself really dissatisfied and longing for something more. I’ve always loved people – the older, the better! Their stories and memories inspire me; I love everything that has history. That’s why, when I was approached to take over Eichlersocal, it was just a no-brainer. Since that day, a lot has happened, but not much has changed – I still love people and history and my hometown. One thing that I HAVE learned on this journey, though, is every which way to make it happen; everybody’s story and situation is different, and requires its own unique approach. Helping to make people’s dreams come true, makes mine come true – I’m a hopeless romantic (I might even cry at an occasional commercial).
So, now, many dreams later, here we are — Better Living Socal — the culmination of all these things, the end of the long, windy road. Only it’s just the beginning – connecting interesting people with unique spaces in the best kept secret of California.
