Cindy Sordo is not only a friend but also a frequent customer of the truck. She’s attended several pop-ups and events with LENITA and aided in providing several bathroom breaks with her visits (without a choice). Her support and positive energy is a warm reminder to keep pushing forward.

Has to have popcorn with jalapenos at the movies. Best snack ever!


This past holiday you participated in our wreath workshop at Wine Stop (and brought your boyfriend Joey to it - his wreath was amazing!) Did you feel like it came natural for you?

I’m sure the wine helped! It was definitely a challenge for me. I'm not an arts and crafts person and I’m too much of a perfectionist, so I usually give up on projects. This was the first time I actually completed something and felt good about it! I was quite proud of my work for an amateur.


You’re a huge fan of Harry Potter – If LENITA existed in that world, what would be her magic? Or what class would she be in?

Ooo, I think it's obvious LENITA would be the kickass and artsy Herbology Professor with sass. She would have the ability to talk to plants and bring life back to dying or dead flora.


Is everything really bigger in Texas? Is LENITA too small for it?

Definitely! That's just the way they like it out there. I think Texas would be so ecstatic and welcoming to LENITA, especially in cute and eclectic cities and towns like Austin! I can see LENITA fitting right in and creating some BIG arrangements out there.


Social media is a thing we didn’t grow up with. As a school therapist, I’m sure you can see a behavioral change in children that have access to it but adults seem to be equality affected by it. Do you have a tip on how to keep balance between online life and the real world?

What I see with my adolescent clients is almost an obsession with social media; their world revolves around it and it consumes a lot of their time. It can have a negative impact when kids use social media to bully, gossip and personally attack others. I've also had experience with kids "stalking" or accessing private information about their teachers and other staff through social media. The same can all be said about adults, too! The way I help them with balancing it all is making sure they are educated on the effects social media use can have on them, such as learning that anything they post isn't private and can/will be seen.

I also enforce strict rules, such as not allowing them to use phones in sessions and not using social media as a way to approach others when trying to resolve issues. I think most of my clients' parents do a pretty good job of creating structure in the home, like not allowing their kids to use their electronics and phones after a certain time, placing parental blocks on certain sites and monitoring who they are speaking to via the Internet/social media.


Open ended: Leave Lenita a poem, a song, a few sentences, a thought.

It has been an honor to witness and be a part of a dear friend’s expression of talent and creativity. I am so proud of him and cannot wait to see what LENITA and his future endeavors bring!
