Ask Dr. Bunny. A White African American Latina? Simone Kvalheim, guest.

Simone Kvalheim joins Dr. Bunny for an extremely interesting conversation about her journey from Zimbabwe to America, and so much more!

Simone shares the story of how she originally started in medical school, but failed to be able to do an autopsy in the first year. This failure was very difficult for her, but it led her to search for a different career path.  She eventually signed up to become a trainee buyer for a chain of stores.

The interesting thing is that Simone hated sewing, but she was still drawn to being a buyer.  What really struck home for her was that, as a trainee buyer, she was able to travel all over the world.  And travel the world she did!  For seven years, Simone lived in Cape Town, South Africa, and traveled between Cape Town and the rest of the world!  She became a senior buyer and absolutely loved it!

Simone also shares the very personal story of how she discovered the truth about why she looks so different than her four sisters, as well as what brought her to America.

So what does it mean when Simone calls herself a White African American Latina?  Well, simply put, Simone’s father was from England, she was born in Zimbabwe, her mother is from Spain, and Simone is very honored and blessed to live in the United States.  There you have it!

Simone is such a lovely person and a true inspiration.  Tune in for a great interview!

Ask Dr. Bunny. How do you create, maintain and cultivate relationships? Ed Blumenstock, guest.

Ed Blumenstock joins Dr. Bunny to discuss relationships.  Dr. Bunny met Ed when she joined Toastmasters, and was really touched by the way he instantly made her feel so welcomed.

As she’s gotten to know Ed, she has noticed that he seems to have a natural knack for creating, cultivating and maintaining relationships – what a gift! – and she wanted to know more about how he does that so well.

Ed tells us how a career in sales has been instrumental in his way of interacting with people.  In sales, you must be much more concerned about your client than you are yourself.

Ed believes in the Dr. Seuss philosophy of “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened”!

Tune in as Ed shares some thoughts, insights, and stories.  A true delight, especially during this unprecedented time in our country. Prepare to be inspired!

And just for fun, here’s a link to the beautiful song that Ed and Dr. Bunny mentioned, “Dance Me To the End of Love” by Leonard Cohen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGorjBVag0I

Ask Dr. Bunny. From England to Mexico? Pauline Sumbland, guest.

Pauline Sumbland joins Dr. Bunny in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, to share her wonderfully interesting story about life in Cabo San Lucas, and what brought “a very conservative Brit” to Mexico from her home country of England.

Family is very important to Pauline, and she shares a lovely story about her granddaughter, who is an amazing artist at only 12 years old.

Pauline is a customer service representative, or more accurately, a very upscale personal concierge, at Quivira Los Cabos, which is where Dr. Bunny met her.

Tune in and hear why she loves the lifestyle in Cabo, and how it compares to the other places she’s lived – London, Monte Carlo, Mexico City, etc.

It’s clear that Pauline truly loves her life, and you’ll be inspired by her story!

About Quivira Los Cabos:

Situated on 1,850 acres, with three miles of pristine beaches, Quivira is a tranquil retreat offering everything from world-class fishing and spectacular golf to award-winning spas, dining and service. Quite simply, Quivira elevates the quintessential Cabo experience, drawing people from around the world year after year.

Quivira takes its name from an ancient legend about seven cities of gold. The story is inspired by the historic event in which Mérida, Spain, was conquered by the Moors in 1150 A.D. It tells the tale of seven bishops who fled with sacred religious relics, hoping to protect them from the invading Moors. According to legend, each of the seven bishops founded cities in lands far away. One of the cities was called “Quivira,” and it was said that the streets there were paved with gold. Such was the promise that ushered in the Golden Age of Exploration when explorers like Coronado, Pizarro and Cortes crossed uncharted waters to discover the new world.

Today, locals refer to this region as Paraiso Escondido, “Mexico’s Hidden Paradise,” and it is home to Quivira, Cabo’s finest luxury residential community. Rather than the fabled gold and rare gems, a beautiful natural landscape and enriching experiences await visitors. And just as the myth took on a life of its own, Quivira, too, inspires stories about the Q life in Cabo San Lucas — stories based on new adventures and unforgettable moments that will be shared and passed on by family and friends from generation to generation.

Traveling to Quivira is easy. For private jets, there is an executive airport only six miles from Quivira. There are more than 30 flights daily to the San Jose International Airport, a scenic, 20-mile drive away. When in Cabo, we encourage you to visit our Sales Office located just north of Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort.
