I started I-Tul in Roseville, California, and am proud to still be based here. We love Roseville because of its thriving chamber, thoughtful leadership, and wonderful city services and amenities.
One of the first things I did when starting I-Tul was to join the Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce. Over the past 20 years, I’ve served as an ambassador, sat on several committees, and attended countless lunches and mixers. The chamber has brought together the business community to represent us in government, connect us, and support the entire community.
I am also proud to be part of the 2019-2020 class of Leadership Roseville. Leadership is a yearlong program that introduces us to local leaders, educates us on city, county, and regional government, and promotes leadership. We’ve welcomed presentations from city and county leaders, including William Jessup University, Greater Sacramento Economic Council, Lake Tahoe Film Office, local Sheriff, Fire and Police departments, and more.
Whether the topic is budgeting, business development, security, future plans, or balancing conflicting needs, the program tackles it all. I am continuously impressed by the program’s professionalism, dedication, cooperation, and community support. This program has deepened my appreciation for local government and given me more reasons to be proud to be a Roseville, California resident and business owner.
Placer County California is a large and diverse community that tracks along Interstate 80 from Roseville to Truckee. We have two beautiful lakes: Folsom Lake and, most importantly, Lake Tahoe. The Tahoe area is beautiful and offers a wonderful variety of recreation. My personal favorite spots are Squaw Valley, especially the Village and High Camp, Sunnyside, and the Resort at Squaw Valley.
Wanderlust holds their annual yoga festival there every year, and I’ve been blessed to attend several times. Staying under the pine trees and learning from amazing teachers like Seane Corn is truly a gift. Every time I attend, I come back renewed and rejuvenated – and it helps that the village is only 1.5 hours from Roseville.
The local South Placer region, including Lincoln, Rocklin, Granite Bay, and Loomis is thriving. We have the regional mall, Westfield Galleria at Roseville, Automall, and wonderful shopping options. My favorite is the Fountains at Roseville – who doesn’t love Mikuni Kaizen’s Tuna Sliders #2?
For the last 20 years, I-Tul has called Roseville, California home – and we intend to stay here for a very long time.
