Marketing-Digital, Additional Active

Jules is the Founder of Wayward Kind, a digital marketing agency with a focus on human connection.

She moved to San Diego from Kansas City ten years ago.  She and her husband, Jeff, have two daughters, 5 year-old Olympia and 3 year-old Helena.

Her team at Wayward Kind refer to her as their Chief Reading Officer (CRO) because she reads 100 to 150 books a year.  She recently read a book “Why We Gather” that inspired her with these main points of what make the best gatherings: 1. they happen weekly, 2. they offer opportunities for deep, authentic communication and connections, 3. they offer opportunities for service.  So it is no surprise that after Jules met President David to learn more our Rotary her immediate response was, “Sign me up!”

Insurance-Private Client Services 

Fatema is a Producer and Sales Consultant for Crystal, Alliant Private Client.

She was born in Saudi Arabia.  Her family moved to the US when she was 3 years old.  They initially landed in Miami and while at the airport, her father asked a complete stranger where his family should live.  The reply was, “San Diego!” And within six months, Fatema and her family were here.  (True story!)

Fatema attended school in Carmel Valley and graduated from SDSU.  She has been working in the insurance industry for the last 10 years.  She recently got married in Switzerland.  A fun fact: the first time she ever played golf, she scored a hole-in-one. (Another true story!)

Sabrina Lopez

Media-Sales & Marketing

Sabrina is originally from Argentina. Her dream of coming to the US was fulfilled when she was able to participate in an exchange program during her freshman year in high school.  She stayed with a family in Indiana who invited her back to finish her senior year with them. She then attended St. Joseph’s college to obtain her degree in Biology and Pre-Med before returning to Argentina.

Determined to return to the US, Sabrina packed up her $200 on her 27th birthday and returned to her “hometown’ of Indiana.  A series of moves and career changes with NBC Universal/Telemundo would ultimately land her here in San Diego where she served as the company’s Vice President of Sales.

Sabrina is looking forward to her next life adventure with her husband Robert and her 9-year old daughter, Mia.
