When she’s not teeing up innovative initiatives, you can find Becky on the green, or traveling with her husband, Charlie, to as many places with water (for her) and mountains (for him). While San Diego is a family favorite, her adventure bucket list includes the likes of an excursion to the Galápagos Islands. Becky says cooking is her love language, and she cherishes sharing meals as much as she can with her children and grandchildren.
