Current Gig(s)

Client Operations Manager at LeaseLabs / Co – founder of Tortuga Del mar alongside my sister Tamara Sneider. My sister and I started Tortuga Del Mar in an effort to create an affordable, chic, versatile swimsuit cover up line. We’ve always lived in California and love the perfect Del Mar beach day and a fun pool day and we thought it would be fun to be creative and start a new business together!

Why do you love San Diego

What’s not to love? San Diego has it all – and this weather, I mean, come on! I love exploring different neighborhoods, trying new restaurants / bars, and just being outdoors enjoying the beautiful city.

What’s a perfect Saturday in San Diego to you?

A perfect day in San Diego would be a walk in Little Italy and down by the water, brunch at Parakeet Cafe, pool time at our apartment rooftop, and then drinks and dinner with friends at a new spot!

What are your favorite things to do when family or friends visit from out of town?

We love to go to downtown La Jolla and walk around the shops, get lunch in Little Italy, spend the day in Coronado, or go to the zoo!

Favorite date night restaurant?

Hmm this is a tough one! We love Piatti for delicious food and a cozy vibe, sushi is our go -to though either Sushi Ota or Shino Sushi at the moment, and for more trendy vibe we love Herb and Wood. Monello and Bencotto our go-tos too now that they’re in our backyard ;).
