Hola! My name is Angel, and although I live in Berkeley CA now, I spent my childhood outdoors, picking plants/petals, poking toads, and climbing trees all by myself in rural Massachusetts (seriously, I’m an only child, and we lived in the middle of the woods). Not surprisingly, when I became a young adult I yearned for adventure, so I packed what I could carry, hopped on a train and ended up here, in Northern California.
Soon after arriving, I met my would-be husband- salsa dancing of all places! My husband grew up in a completely opposite environment- Acapulco, MX. It’s a huge city, in a tropical climate, and he is one of 12 siblings! But you know what they say, opposites attract, so here we are, 15 years later, with 2 wonderful girls of our own. Even though we are from such different places, we love showing them the best of BOTH our cultures, from maple syrup to mole and everything in-between.
I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit, but not many role models to look up to (entrepreneurialism does not run in my family). Thankfully, I live in the SF Bay Area and small business resources/inspiration abound! I have really enjoyed connecting with the small business communities and institutions available to me. It is one of my many hopes that my girls will see this journey and the business I am building as inspiration for their own adventures and possibilities.
