Our new lifestyle director will be working with our residents (that’s you!) to plan all sorts of exciting events and fun activities including fitness classes, wine tastings, cooking demonstrations, family fun nights, and seasonal celebrations, to name a few. Better yet, she’ll be tailoring these events to the needs and interests of our residents. That means that the events and activities at Sandbrock Ranch will be one of a kind, made to cater to our unique community and the friendly people who make it up.
Residents at Sandbrock Ranch already know that our master-planned community in Aubrey, TX has a pretty full schedule of resident events and other activities every month. The lifestyle director is the person who brings it all together and makes it happen, from planning and coordinating the events themselves to putting out calendars so that residents know what’s happening and when.
To that end, we’re extremely lucky to have our new lifestyle director Selynda, and we can’t wait to see what she has in store for our residents in the coming months! In the meantime, we sat down with her for a quick Q&A to get an idea of what makes our new lifestyle director tick and what residents can expect from the future!
Are you a local? How long have you lived in Aubrey?
I’m not from Aubrey, but I was born and raised in Texas.
Where did you grow up? Big or small family?
I grew up on a small farm in Mansfield with my older sister, a small family, and tons of animals. All those goats, horses, and chickens may be part of why I fell in love with Sandbrock Ranch, and I look forward to helping our residents connect with nature!
Tell us about your immediate family. Partner? Kids? Grandkids?
I am married to my best friend, Hugo. We were neighbors growing up, which makes for a pretty awesome love story, if I do say so myself. We have two grown college-age boys. Elijah is 23, Ethan is 20, and they plan on giving us six grandkids! They live nearby, so we are fortunate to be a very close family.
Pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
We have two female mocha Chihuahuas. Jade is five years old, a lover of kids who has won some dog race competitions. Honey is just ten months old, and she’s a handful!
Is there anywhere special you like to travel?
My husband has family in various parts of Mexico, so we enjoy spending most holidays there.
Any special talents or skills?
My talents are interior design and photography. As for skills, how about loving on others? I just love people!
What are your hobbies or interests? What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I love paddleboarding, skating, and just traveling.
What are your favorite foods?
I love to cook, and our family are foodies who love trying new places and new things. I particularly love Mediterranean and Mexican food, and when it comes to ice cream, gelato is my jam, especially banana pudding flavor!
What are your favorite sports or teams?
I enjoy watching high school football, UFC, and boxing!
What do you think is the best thing about Sandbrock Ranch?
All of it!!! The treehouse area is amazing! The fact that we have a horse named Karen is so funny! And, of course, our lifestyle program. We are our own small town, and it’s great to bring our neighbors together with activities they will love.
What are you most excited about in your new role?
I have an amazing team, and I’m looking forward to working with them to develop opportunities for families to create happy memories within their own community. That’s what brings me JOY!
