Welcome to With love, Scarleny! Scarleny, pronounced|Scar-len-e|my mother and aunt made up my very unique middle name and although, it was weird to mention it growing up because nobody understood it or knew how to pronounce it. As I got older I grew to dig how “different” my overall name was and really own it, after all it’s ME it’s who I am! BUT feel free to call me by my (very basic) first name, Cindy.
I was born in Honduras, raised in the heart of L.A. in Southern California where I currently call HOME after living overseas for a few years in Spain and China. I’m a human with so much love for the world, our planet, other people and animals. I am a health and wellness enthusiast, food lover, and traveler fascinated with learning holistic ways to heal physically, mentally and spiritually around the world.
I grew up speaking Spanish, I’m a proud Latina that embraces all the beauty of her culture. I received a Minor in Spanish during my studies in Spain while also attaining my Bachelor’s in Business. I’ve been so fortunate to have beautiful personal and professional experiences and to be able to blend them together allowing me to play and create in this universe. Most of my work is centered around business, entertainment and food. At one point I worked in basketball under the NBA, where I learned an incredible amount about public and community relations. I’ve provided customized weekly meals and juices as a personal Healthy Chef for NBA & CBA athletes. Led Holistic Health & Wellness workshops and trained Chefs to innovate traditional recipes. I tap into expressing myself creatively through writing, cooking, content creating and styling. I now proudly own a business, The Nourishing Cocina, where I bring beautiful nourishing healthy eating to my community.
WithloveScarleny.com is my creative space to bring you all the powerful knowledge I’m gaining as I collaborate with athletes, fitness gurus, amazing leaders, business owners, my friends and family from so many different parts of the world! It’s where I openly share my story, adventures, recipes, and other bits and pieces of my fearless life.
My intentions are that you find love and light here, that you use this as a guiding source for your life as well and we can make this world at least just a tiny bit better together!
You can catch me in the kitchen dancing salsa while recreating recipes from around the world to bring some healing.
