AND…personal reflections from Lucia…
“Passion is the building block to my life…without it, I would surely crumble. While I continue to remain passionate and active in my career as an Actor I Writer I Producer I Model I Muse; I have also found passion in other dynamic communities in sustainability, permaculture, and horticulture & gardening. My love of family, community, animal well-being, social, economic & environmental justice has led me to attaining certification in Horticulture & Gardening, Global Sustainability at UCLA (earned with distinction), Permaculture Design at EarthFlow Design Works, and Master Gardener at the University of California Cooperative Extension, Agriculture and Natural Resources. My present day goal is to build a home and community that is ecologically harmonious, economically viable and socially responsible.
Inspiration is my driving force and it is such a joy to be on a journey of creativity and design in a range of diverse fields: of entertainment, as a business-owner, gardener, permaculturist, and sustainability professional. I am grateful to be part of these rousing, creative communities, which continue to inspire and challenge me with new and exciting opportunities. I look forward to future endeavors, both as an artist, business woman, gardener and a sustainability specialist.”
