By Karen Vazquez, Founder of LoSoCal
Hey there LoSoCal friends and readers! Was that a fun summer or what? I have been so focused on being as healthy as I can be and I slowed down quite a bit to rest these last few months. It was fun and it was RELAXING! I know that if you live in SoCal as well, then you understand how gorgeous it was here! My summer was full of pool days under the sunny sun and I bet that many of you did the exact same thing. Ha!
During my more “active” days when I was out and about, I met so many amazing, interesting and talented people in our SoCal communities and I was able to see some long-time special friends, too. As many of our readers know, I am an Ambassador at Hera Hub Carlsbad, a shared workspace for women where I am a part of a wonderful community of women entrepreneurs. This last summer the new community director there, Tamina, connected me with a member, Elise Wark. She specializes in movement coaching. It was love at first sight. She has already touched my heart and with us having so much in common...we immediately hit it off. She also has her degree in Public Relations and she has a passion for writing. Those are two of my favorite things! After getting to know Elise better, I realized that she would be perfect to join the team I am developing with LoSoCal.
Essentially, we are a community blog and we have previously had other writers on a guest blogger basis. Another team member, Chris Morrison, has been a long time guest blogger with me for three years and he is in a leadership role as the lead ambassador of LoSoCal. I have had MANY guest bloggers over the last four years. It’s been a very fun and interesting journey to work with other writers like myself.
Elise will be a bit different since she will be with us long-term instead of coming on as a visiting guest blogger. She hopes to share some of her health and wellness lifestyle tips and knowledge!
I wanted her to offer a little greeting and information about herself to let the readers of LoSoCal know who the new "Health and Wellness Expert" will be on our site. So, here we go. What's up Elise?
“Hi LoSoCal community! I am so excited to be your health & wellness expert! My mission is to bring you tons of value, education & tools that you can begin incorporating into your daily life to heal yourself & live with true vitality (the state of being active & strong, having life, vibrancy, energy, passion & drive). A little bit about me: I recently relocated to North County (from LA) with my husband to make Carlsbad our permanent home & have quickly fallen in love with the area! I am a hip & back specialist, movement coach & founder of Illuminate Movement, a vitality brand helping individuals get out of hip & back pain & learn how to heal themselves: physically, mentally & emotionally. I will be sharing my own journey of healing, local health resources & giving you secrets & tips to begin living the life you want to live! Looking forward to connecting & evolving with you!”
Thanks Elise! Welcome to the LoSoCal family!

Hello, my name is Karen Vazquez. I have lived in Southern California for over thirty years. I realized about four years ago that it was time for me to give back to this wonderful community by supporting local SoCal businesses, performers, restaurants, spas, boutiques, fitness studios, farmers markets and more. My support shines through here by highlighting these fabulous local SoCal spots. You can also follow me on Instagram, Twitter, PInterest and LinkedIn. I will be featuring many local destinations in the area that have been my personal favorites for years and am currently recruiting guest bloggers to expand the voice of LoSoCal. I have had guest bloggers in the past, but aim to incorporate local SoCal bloggers on a regular basis as a fun, creative and collaborative way to connect with the community here. Essentially, LoSoCal is a community blog, and it is meant to be resource to locals in this area and visitors from around the world. Please like or follow LoSoCal on the social media business pages and tell your contacts about the blog. Thanks for stopping by...
