How did you become employed at The Clubs of 

Cordillera Ranch?

I heard about this position while working at the Visitor Center with Pasadera Builders, a Preferred Builder on the Ranch. While helping clients build their beautiful homes in Di Lusso Villas, I fell in love with the community and the members. This ended up driving my desire to come to The Clubs and when learning about what this position entailed, it sounded like an answer to a prayer. It was amazing how much it already felt like family here. 

What past work history prepared you for The Clubs?

While this has been the first club I have worked at, I do feel that previous experience as well as some amazing mentors have helped give me the tools to succeed. Making sure that clients feel comfortable and at home have always been a priority for me. A few years ago, I was living in Houston and was the Business Manager for two Montessori Schools. This community taught me a truly important lesson of how much your community impacts your success in all areas of your life. 

What is your favorite part of your job?

Our members by far are the most wonderful part of Cordillera Ranch. Getting to know each of the members, hearing about their travel, their adventures, how they find their happiness and how they have overcome struggles has really set this apart from anywhere I have experienced. Therefore, it has been so rewarding and continues my drive to make members’ experiences here even better, either with awesome service, a preset dining table for a surprise birthday or an extra trinket in a Lodging room — anything we can do to make your stay unforgettable. It is always fun to do things extra for nice people and Cordillera is in no way short on that. 

What do you do in your free time?

In the summer, my son and I spend our days by the water whether it be a pool, a river or the ocean. We are also big campers! Any time we get the chance to go, we always jump on it. Making sure that my family maintains that balance between school, work and family time has always been a priority and it is also why I love Cordillera so much. Taking the opportunity to get out, recharge and get grounded again is a must in my family.

How would you describe yourself in three words?

Energetic, dependable and spirited. 

What would your last meal be?

CHEESeCAKE! Especially the kind with the Oreo crust. Yum!

What is your secret to happiness?

There is a secret? If anyone has this information, my contact information is above — please give me a call and we can discuss! I do believe that happiness comes by faith and the decision to choose joy and contentment continuously. I know I constantly remind my team on hard days to choose joy day by day. If that seems impossible, then hour by hour and if even then, choose moment by moment. When life gives you lemons, slice them up and find some Codigo!

Which super power would you like to have?

So many choices! Should I just choose super strength so I could intimidate and crush all of my foes; better yet have an inner Hulk? Or maybe the ability to become invisible so I could pull amazing pranks on all of my coworkers? I think I would have to channel my inner Wonder Woman though, with the ability to fly and have incredible strength. Not to mention her highly fashionable and functional accessories? Yes, please!

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Without a doubt I wanted to be both an artist and an elementary school teacher. That was my absolute dream! However, my dream was NOT to be an art teacher. The two in no way would ever overlap, although I don’t quite know the reason. 

Favorite quote or motto?

“When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider this: God has made one as well as the other.” Ecclesiastes 7:14. I have to remind myself of this daily as it is so easy to forget the hard times are just as important as the easy times. Knowing that the God of the mountain is the same God of the valley seems to make the hard times smaller.
