While attending a yoga retreat in 2011 Ursula took the opportunity to rediscover the communities of the Hi-Desert and she fell for the small town atmosphere and the awe-inspiring beauty. The following year this native Angeleno left the big city and made the Hi-Desert her home.
At thirteen she had her first job in the restaurant industry and at twenty-one, she was promoted to a management position, one of the youngest managers in the chain.
A distinguished service veteran of the US Army she served at United States European Command Headquarters in Command and Control and upon returning to civilian life she worked predominantly in the manufacturing industry, progressively in higher and more demanding supervisory positions.
Until recently she was Executive Director of the 29 Palms Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Center. An active community volunteer, Ursula currently serves on the board of Reach Out Morongo Basin.
In the future, she desires to return to her restaurant roots and open a boutique eatery in the Yucca Valley.
