Bio and Testimonial from Fabiola Sotomayor:
Fabiola has resided in Sonoma, California for eleven years with her husband and twelve-year old daughter.
Fabiola has always had five passions in life: love for her family, travel, dogs, theatre and living life to the fullest. Her love for travel and theatre began when on planned family vacations in Mexico, Canada, the United States and Europe. Fabiola is fluent in Spanish, English and conversational Italian and considers herself an eternal optimist and a citizen of the world.
Since Fabiola was a little girl, her parents instilled in her and her sister their love for travel, experiencing new cultures and a sense of curiosity. Some of her most memorable places she has visited are off the beaten path destinations including secluded beaches, colonial and historical towns in Mexico, Italy, Spain and Morocco. Fabiola’s love for travel only grew as young adult. After attending college in Texas, Fabiola decided to embark on a hospitality career conceived in Mexico with a focus on sales and marketing and an innate desire to create unique and memorable travel experiences.
As a young hotelier, one of Fabiola’s transcendent moments was to take a sabbatical in Florence, Italy where she spent eight months learning the Italian language, Italian cooking and art history lessons where she immersed herself with other students from around the world.
Fabiola’s 18 years of experience in sales and marketing in hospitality has evolved over the years to represent a plethora of unique hotels and resorts with a sense of place and experiences in destinations including San Miguel de Allende, Riviera Maya and Los Cabos in Mexico. After moving from Italy to San Francisco where she worked for San Francisco Travel representing the city of San Francisco, she and her husband moved to Santa Monica, California where Fabiola worked for Montage and Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. From Los Angeles, they moved back to the Bay Area to raise their daughter in Sonoma, where they have resided over the last eleven years and where Fabiola has continued her career in luxury hospitality with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
Fabiola and her husband Raul have lived in Sonoma, California for the last eleven years
and are deeply rooted in the community they love, embrace and support.
Their daughter is now twelve years old and has instilled their shared passion for travel, experiencing different cultures, appreciating performing arts and a curiosity to embrace a global outlook. Sofia’s favorite childhood memories include attending Broadway performances in cities like San Francisco, New York and London when she looks forward to annual traditions including The Nutcracker, Broadway performances Broadway under the Stars, the Holiday Spectacular the Transcendence Kids Summer Camp.
“I am so excited to join the Board of Directors at Transcendence Theatre Company! I have seen the company grow from its inception and have witnessed what an incredible positive impact they have made in our community. Its magic is experienced by children and adults from all genders and ages who leave every performance feeling re-charged and re-energized as they smile with gratitude and hope for the gift they have just been given to their minds and souls. Transcendence Theatre Company has brought the gift and magic of live performances to thousands of people in the most unique and original experiential format over the last decade. I am looking forward to being a part of the new journey as live theatre evolves, recovers and heals from this pandemic. The work at hand will not be easy, but it will be worth it!” – Fabiola Sotomayor
