meet the mamacitas
"We've been friends for over thirteen years, and trust us, motherhood is way more fun with your fellow mamacitas!"
a little about Alex
Alexandra Rozo, also known as Alex, is an actress, voice-over artist, flamenco dancer, producer, poet and mother. She grew up as a child actor and host for Univision and Telemundo in her hometown of Miami, Florida. She worked on everything from kids shows and comedies, to dramas and yes, telenovelas. Although raised by a very old-school Colombian mother, Alex's childhood was definitely not traditional, but the one thing that has remained constant throughout her life, is her need to express herself creatively. Dancing, painting, and writing poetry are some of the things that bring her the most joy. She is a sensitive, empathetic and dreamy Pisces hidden behind a strong Leo exterior. When it comes to motherhood, she always tries to follow her intuition and lead by example. Alex is fascinated by human behavior and passionate about self-development. Her days are filled with meditation, work-outs, music and, of course, lots and lots of playtime with her 5-year-old daughter, Sofia.
Alex calls Los Angeles her home and is happy to be the co-creator and editor of "Mamá Cita."
a little about wendy
Wendy is a multi-tasking mom, managing her multi-generational home, all while working as a freelancer in the Arts. She is a voracious reader, foodie, oenophile and all around bon vivant.
Originally from El Salvador, Wendy emigrated to the US as a child and grew up in Glendale, CA. She is a graduate of UCLA's Department of World Arts and Cultures and has had a successful career as a Flamenco dancer and choreographer for the past 20 years. From theater to the "Tablao," Wendy has performed in some of the city's most prominent venues. She currently teaches Flamenco from her home studio in Ventura and produces a Flamenco music and dance series called "Flamenco in the 805." For more info, check her out at www.laflamenco.com
Always believing that first you dance and then you write, Wendy has recently re-imagined and relaunched her career as a writer, hoping the podcast will provide research for a future book. Past experience include writing for the Latin market within the realms of Spanish language print, (El Salvador USA and Dia a Dia Newspapers), and for Azteca America TV, where she produced translations, ad copy and editorials. In 2012 she began writing a blog titled Her 30’s, which documented the thirty-something female experience. She also put her foodie tendencies to work and began writing reviews for the Love Happy Hour website. Through that publication she was featured on the Menuism blog and dubbed “a popular food blogger.” Wendy has been featured on Freshly Pressed through Wordpress, featured on the Blogher Network, has been a contributor at Project Eve, and writer for XOJane in the It Happened to Me section.
She is co-creator of the Mamá Cita Podcast and hopes to start conversations with other Latina/Latinx mamacitas that are both cathartic as well as informative.
