About the Paulina Lopez-Velazquez
Paulina Lopez-Velazquez was born in Oaxaca, Mexico where she spent the first 12 years of her life. In 1994, her father decided to move her entire family to Los Angeles after opening the now-iconic Guelaguetza Restaurant in Koreatown. At a very young age, Paulina participated in Oaxacan- centric organizations, such as a Folkloric Dance Group and FOCOICA, a Oaxacan community-focused organization based in Los Angeles.
To get back in touch with her roots and culture Paulina returned to Mexico after graduating college and studied International Business Administration at Universidad Anahuac del Sur in Oaxaca and Mexico City. When she returned to Los Angeles, Paulina took over Guelaguetza Food Products- a family company that was dedicated to importing and distributing Oaxacan- food products across the country. A couple of years later, Paulina and her siblings took over Guelaguetza, and has since been awarded a James Beard Award as an American Classic- the biggest honor among the culinary world. Today Paulina is the CFO of the company and runs all back of the house operations, such as Human Resources and Finance.
In 2015, Paulina and her sister Bricia launched “Super Mamas Podcast” a judgment- free space where new, experienced and expecting mothers can come together to not only exchange knowledge but provide support for one another during the emotional ups and downs of motherhood. Paulina is also co-producer of the Super Mamas Social, an annual Family Festival that takes place in Downtown Los Angeles as well as the Super Mamas Night Out and the Super Mamas Vision Board Party.
Paulina currently sits on the Board of Directors of City Charter Schools, a Los Angeles Based School organization that promotes diversity, culture and bilingualism. Paulina has also received different awards and recognitions for her work with woman and businesses in the community like the 2017 “Woman of the Year” Award, given by the California State Assembly and the Legislative Women’s Caucus. Paulina lives in South LA with her husband and three daughters Krista, Sabina and Zixta. Her passions include immigration rights, bilingualism, culture awareness and girls and women’s education.
