About Twyman and Jesse –

Twyman, originally from Kentucky, and Jesse, a California Bay Area native, met in San Francisco and have been together for 12 years and married for 8. Twyman, a finance executive and Jesse, a corporate creative, followed their careers from San Francisco to Seattle, back to San Francisco and eventually landing in Palm Springs during the pandemic. The pandemic brought increasingly stressful demands for Twyman’s career and a layoff for Jesse. This, and the blistering desert heat, caused the two to begin examining their lives to evaluate how to create a healthier, better quality of life. Jesse decided to fulfill a long-time desire to be in service to others and become a wellness coach and Twyman determined that he was ready to release his career and to embrace life more fully. With a new liberated mindset, the two decided that living anywhere would now be possible. Mexico had been a special place where they celebrated birthdays, their first Christmas together and their honeymoon so it seemed like the perfect place to relocate and celebrate this new phase of their lives.
