Ocala ★WORD: People. I am

Executive Chef at Katya Vineyards ★WORD: Cheers.

Managing Director of Katya Vineyards ★WORD:

Love of Beauty Bar, LLC / Hello Purpose, LLC ★WORD:

This is a happy word which symbolizes celebration. 2020 has been a year of mountains for everyone. We should celebrate our unity as people and how we have grown together. ★NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT: Unfortunately, my cell phone. I get really anxious when it dies. ★TELL YOUR 16-YEAR OLD SELF ONE THING: Never give up on yourself. The moment you give up will be the moment no one is left fighting for you. Remember, life will tough, but so are you. ★FOR THE DESERT ISLAND: Every island needs reggaeton! And once we run out of music I will start singing . . . right, Kat?!?

Hugs. For me, a hug is a comforting reminder of our humanity, a selfless act of friendship. This year hugs were paused for our greater good. As our world heals this is what I miss the most. ★THE NEXT 40 YEARS: Seeing a legacy I have created with my husband successfully run by our future children . . . from a yacht in the Maldives. ★TELL YOUR 16-YEAR OLD SELF ONE THING: Chin Up and Buckle Up Buttercup. You will fail, you will learn, you will succeed. This is normal, this will take time, you will be OK. ★FOR THE DESERT ISLAND: The TV show “Frasier.” My husband has the music covered! (Hopefully he won’t have to sing)

#purpose-pusher. I realize that my purpose in life is to inspire, empower and cultivate others to live in purpose, on purpose! Over the years I have been blessed to help push many individuals to live life unapologetically in purpose! ★NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT: My cell phone. It’s my business and got to love a good selfie in good light. ★FOR THE DESERT ISLAND: “Love & Basketball,” “Coming To America” and “Low Down Dirty Shame” are three movies I can watch over and over. For albums just give me a little church music and some R&B (old school/neo-soul).

33 Owner, Things To Do

a strong believer in the power of relationships. Everything we accomplish, we accomplish with the support of others. ★THE NEXT 40 YEARS: I hope to be healthy and retired in the next 40 years living on a beach! I am hoping that I can provide wisdom to our younger generation through mentoring and telling stories of a wonderful life. ★NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT: With my business being tied into social media, I always bring my phone. ★TELL YOUR 16-YEAR OLD SELF ONE THING: Never give up on your dreams. Your word holds true to your integrity and commitment in all relationships of life. Fall in love with the people who make you love the person you are when you are with them.
