A typical day in my life includes…

driving the kids to school and opening our brewery.

I was born…

in Manila, Philippines.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the serenity of the deserts, beautiful wildflowers, the mountains you could hike, and then climb and ride your bike in a dirt road and then there is skiing up in Snowbowl and Sunrise.

I’m listening to…  

local musicians here at NMT Brewery: North Canyon, Steve Thomas and Skunk Creek Railroad Band with violin, piano, guitar and mandocello – Bluegrass, Jazz, Classic Rock and Bob Marley and my favorite Led Zeppelin.

My family…

is my joy, my strength, my weakness, and my savior of the day.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Jesus Christ.

One thing I cannot live without…

my family, plants and funny people in general (I like funny people).

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

an herbalist nun.

I’m inspired by…

intelligent people (like my husband), Stephen Hawking, positive, honesty, integrity and strength of other people.

The one person who motivates me is…

my mother.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

to minimize human diseases and sufferings, reduce air pollution, and find ways to recycle our wastewater and saltwater.

The perfect day would be…

a fun day at work, cooking with Rob at home and having dinner with family.

My first job was…

ironing clothes for a local designer in Hollywood.

My favorite escape…

a cabin somewhere full of snow, ski all day and then cook dinner for my family and drink our homebrew IPA.

My life…

is now the brewery with Rob, our girls, my extended family – our dedicated employees.

I’m currently working on…

barrel aging room, garden in Sunnyslope and R&D at the brewery.

Always…

be honest, strong willed, and keep improving yourself emotionally, physically, intellectually and spirituality.

Never…

make fun of struggling people and other cultures.

Favorite Quote…

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched. They must be felt in the heart” – Helen Keller

Biggest Dream…

to travel in the moon Europa, hike one of its mountains and drink beer with Rob.

My Pet Peeve(s)…  

not showing up for work and dishonest people!
