Beautifully.Unique _______Be. U

Beautifully.Unique or.... Be.U, is our mission designed to celebrate the differences of each and every individual.  Beauty is found in the confidence of embracing your God-given unique-ness.  Michael and I both live a life surrounded by the "beauty industry", however, we both believe true beauty comes from within and it is derived from the confidence in knowing what you, as an individual, can contribute to the world and to others.  Each one of us possesses unique qualities, all valuable to humankind.  Finding the confidence in oneself to use these qualities to lift others up is the true definition of being Beautifully Unique.  Celebrate your uniqueness and Be.U


Each organization we support, aligns with our platform to encourage individuals to embrace their unique qualities, and to use their own God-given talents to leave their unique stamp on the world.

Giving Back: Our Mission

The mission of the Del Mar Foundation is to promote civic pride and cohesiveness, acquire and preserve open space, improve beaches and parklands, raise and grant funds, and sponsor diverse cultural programs and community events in Del Mar.


In partnership with schools and at Girls Inc. centers, we focus on the development of the whole girl. She learns to value herself, take risks, and discover and develop her inherent strengths. The combination of long-lasting mentoring relationships, a pro-girl environment, and research-based programming equips girls to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers, and grow up healthy, educated, and independent. Informed by girls and their families, we also advocate for legislation and policies to increase opportunities and rights for all girls.
