My name is Jana Contreras and I may look 16, but I am really 26 years old. I am located in Sonoma County, California but love to travel anywhere and everywhere. I am married to my other half, Eli Contreras. Eli is one crazy talented musician. I may be biased but just ask him to sing and you will see one of the many reasons why I fell in love with him. Another reason why I married him is obviously for his mad cooking skills. I mean he made me Pollo El Horno last night with amazing Tostones, need I say more? (If I could eat this meal every day for the rest of my life I would!).
I am passionate about the nectary funky monkey smoothies (banana and strawberry), Sol Food (the Puerto Rican restaurant based out of San Rafael), and avocados. In my free time you can find me at home probably looking for the stash of chocolate that my hubby hides from me or going to get one of my favorite smoothies from the nectary in Sebastopol California.
I love to explore different national parks, belt Needtobreathe songs alone in my room, eat Avocado toast with Trader Joes everything but the bagel seasoning on it and watch countless episodes of Grey's Anatomy. I also love serving the community for Jesus. My favorite place in the world to serve is South Africa. I have been there many times and have loved every minute of loving on those kids. I truly believe those kids gave me more love than I ever could have given them.
Most importantly I love what I do! I am passionate about this dream job of mine and I am stoked to be doing this everyday of my life!
Life is short so be sure to fill it with adventure after adventure. Do not be afraid to set goals that seem impossible to reach for if you persevere you will succeed. Do scary things and never stay in your comfort zone. Get out of your comfort zone and learn to thrive there. Always be willing to serve and look for ways to serve in your community and around the world. Above all else love one another.
