Sacred geometry contains all of the geometric shapes in God’s creation and represents the patterns that make up everything God has made.

Why would anyone want to read my blog? I’m not sure yet but I have a lot to say. I’ve always been in service my whole life. Starting off in the working world as a young girl I worked as a waitress, in San Francisco my home, and Hawaii my second home. I married at 20 and two years later in 1977 my husband was killed in a tragic motorcycle accident. Following this my boss put me behind the bar to make more money to support myself. I wound up working for ten years as a bartender all over the city. During this time I also worked for many catering companies. I cooked, served and tended bar for fantastic parties and events. After my grief faded, this stage in my life became the most profound time of making new and lifelong friends, and learning much about myself. I also had started dancing hula and dances of Polynesia when I moved back to San Francisco from Hawaii. I danced under some great teachers, and performed all over the Bay Area. My hula sisters and brothers became my family and helped me to heal from the loss of my husband. I still dance and teach a few close friends, and I feel so blessed to have this history and knowledge to pass on to others. My next career came about when I was looking for a better job as a bartender in hotels and there was none to be found, but I was offered a concierge job. This was a wonderful transition for me. Three years later I was hired as Assistant Chief Concierge to open the newly remodeled Palace Hotel in 1991. A year later I took over the Chief Concierge position and in 1993 I was accepted into the Les Clefs d' Or International Association for hotel concierges. This was an exciting time of my career, and I met many friends all over the world, some of who I am still friends with. I also started working part time at a ranch in West Marin County. I showed to go for a trail ride, and the following weekend I was working there as a wrangler. I worked every Saturday for 3 years, feeding, grooming, saddling horses, cleaning stalls, and taking people for rides on the trails of the beautiful Point Reyes National Seashore. I was addicted! I couldn’t wait for Saturdays to ride so after work at the hotel I would go a stables nearby in Daly city and paid a monthly fee to ride any time I wished. This was destiny, because I met a man from Mexico who eventually became my husband. He didn’t speak much English and he was younger than me, but he could really handle a horse and we became friends riding together every day after work. After about a year of this we started a relationship. Now, happily married for 20 years to a my best friend. We have our own horses at a ranch in Moss Beach, he manages the ranch, and has a successful horseshoeing business. In 2002 I sadly left the concierge profession and the hotel to be my own boss. I passed my real estate license and started a new career. I still have my license, but after 16 years in this business, I am ready to move on again. My journey into nutrition started when I was turned 60. I was still doing catering on my own and real estate, and I was ready for a change. I went to Tahiti with my dear friend Carol and it was life-changing. When I got back we started hiking I wanted to train to do a hike in Grand Canyon again. So we started hiking Montara Mountain every Saturday. This mountain is magical, which we discover so much about ourselves. I decided to meet with my friend who helped me with my website to make changes to my catering website, but when I it opened up my menu binder a little magazine clipping fell in my lap. It was for nutrition consultant. This turned out to be the next step to incorporate nutrition with my cooking which I’ve always been passionate about. I received a scholarship from my tribe the Chickasaw Nation, , and began my education with Hawthorne University, for Nutrition Consultant Certification. View all posts by Ali Tejeda
