The beach is my happy place! I usually devote nine hours of my day for my regular job and the rest is for our start-up business.

You have a lot of things going on with your professional life. How do you maintain a healthy work-life balance?
I'm a believer of the work-life blend! I enjoy mixing work with play. I find it refreshing whenever I'm working by the beach while sipping a fruit shake.
Any advice for those who are planning their own start-ups?
Making mistakes is inevitable, but what's more important is the learning process. Bootstrapping is also key!
What’s the best thing about being a full-time accounts manager and part-time start-up maven?
It's really fulfilling to empower women through fashion and style. I’m also grateful to work with a dynamic team—they bring light to my stressful days.
Where can we find you when you're not being a #boss?
I love exploring the uncharted beaches in the Philippines. I promised myself that I'd visit at least one beach a month. When I’m frolicking under the sun, I’m probably jogging in Makati's parks or pigging out at a Japanese restaurant.
Speaking of exploring and traveling, what's your favorite travel destination?
My favorite is Palawan. I want to go back soon! When you're there, make sure to visit Ka Lui restaurant for some superb seafood and a native dining experience!
And what’s one place you really want to travel to?
Iceland. I'd love to see the Northern Lights!
If you were to live abroad for a while, or for forever, where would it be?
The Maldives! Anywhere near the beach will do.
