Angelica Gavaldon
I am from Tijuana and grew up in Coronado. I feel very blessed to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. My passion for writing began after I retired from the tennis tour when I began writing for a national television network in Miami. My whole life was spent as an athlete and having been exposed to the best coaches, nutritionists, trainers, sport psychologist in the world I wanted to share my experiences and new things I continue to learn.

Rosario Heer
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After graduating high school, I studied journalism and decided I wanted to travel for a few years. I was hired by a cruise line and worked in Hawaii and Alaska for over two years. When I returned to Buenos Aires, I wanted to combine my love for photography and journalism and graduated from Documentary and Photojournalism school. My favorite part about living in San Diego is the perfect weather, and to have the ability to drive a few miles to find myself into different settings, and the diversity it offers from the ocean to the mountains.

Alexis Maness
Writing has been an invaluable part of my life for as long as I can remember, starting with poetry in elementary school. Originally from Riverside, I moved here in 2008 and never looked back. My favorite thing about summers in SD is exploring fun venues and making memories with friends.

Lori Walton
I am from a small town in Northern California whose claim to fame is an In-N-Out Burger! Growing up in Tracy, I wrote in my “secret” journal. Now, I write online about the philanthropists who make San Diego a special place to live year-round, not just during the summer. I have called San Diego home for the last 28 years. I am constantly amazed by the number of nonprofits doing good work which is why I champion so many different causes.
