About Doun:

“DawnStar was a manifestation from my passion to be of service to provide natural modalities to encourage self care and self love. I began my search for holistic healing techniques a few years ago which resulted in getting certified as a Reiki Master, Crystal Healer, Yoga Instructor, and Reflexologist.

However, all of those certifications lead me to my true passion which is helping others look and feel beautiful from the inside out. It was when I began creating natural crystal jewelry and body adornments that I discovered my creative energy, enthusiasm, and an outlet to allow it to flourish.

It makes my heart smile to create unique, high vibrational pieces and infuse each item with love and light. I select high quality natural crystals and semiprecious stones. Each item is mindfully handcrafted to awaken the Divine Feminine and Shakti energy within which is associated with life force, sensuality, and vitality.

Our customers have repeatedly said “DawnStar is not just jewelry, it’s an experience”.
Our goal is to help you to shine like the “Star” you are!

About Lisseth:
Lisseth has participated in NY and LA fashion week (twice) and has done several different runway fashion shows around the country.

Lisseth answers the question, “Who is LCC woman to you?”
I think the Lisseth Corrao Couture woman really can be any woman. My main aim is to make women feel beautiful and I don’t think that starts or stops at any age or demographic. I think a woman always wants to look her best. I’ve had eight year olds come to my studio – these kids are savvy and just want to see what we’re doing. We also had a woman who had just turned 75 and she had bought the same dress one of my models wore to the Oscars.

To me that really shows that age boundaries have come down in the last few decades, and that women are not afraid to dress how they want, regardless of age. They just want to feel and look beautiful. The Lisseth Corrao woman is the drive behind my designs. She is the woman of today. She is active, glamorous, chic, and independent. Most importantly, she is not afraid to be elegant, fun and feminine.


We then sat down with Chef Jarrod Moiles, to talk about his new position with The Patio Group as Executive Chef!  

We found out if he feels the pressure in this new position.  Guess what?  He thrives under pressure!  He is cool, calm and collected! 

Chef Jarrod comes to TPG from his previous role as Executive Chef at Rancho Valencia. During his tenure, Rancho Valencia achieved multiple restaurant and resort honors, including AAA Five Diamond Hotel status and Four Diamond Restaurant recognition; Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Hotel ranking and Four-Star Restaurant ranking for the first time; “America’s Best Culinary Hotel” from the Boutique Hotel Awards; Open Table “Diners’ Choice.” and Travel + Leisure “World’s Best Awards” as a Top 15 resort in the U.S. and Top 50 worldwide.

Earlier this year, U.S. News & World Report ranked Rancho Valencia the top California Resort and top California Hotel; Best USA Resort (#5) and Best USA Hotel (#9).

As the Corporate Executive Chef at The Patio Group, Chef Jarrod’s goals are to refresh and reinvigorate the individual themes for each restaurant property, retaining what makes each unique while embracing fresh concepts and innovations for its guests.

About Jarrod:

Chef Jarrod grew up in rural Massachusetts, where he and his three brothers learned from an early age the importance of fresh ingredients and the rituals of cooking and eating meals together as a family. “It was normal for me to be in the garden,” he says, and knew he wanted to be a chef from an early age.

Jarrod Moiles began his formal culinary training at Johnson & Wales University in Rhode Island, then worked over the next 13 years in a variety of increasingly complex roles at the finest restaurants in Massachusetts. He accepted his first Executive Chef role at the young age of 23 at the well-regarded Worcester Italian restaurant Tiano’s in 2000.

By 2010, Moiles was established as Executive Chef at the modern American steakhouse Newton BOKX at the Hotel Indigo in Newton, Massachusetts. He achieved success in moving menu development forward, working with local farms, motivating the staff and creating positive working conditions, and implementing HAACP standards.

In 2012, Chef Jarrod drove across the country to San Diego without a job secured to explore new opportunities. He secured a position as sous chef at Rancho Valencia, and within a short time was offered the role as Executive Chef, where he worked with the owners to oversee a $30 million refresh of the resort and updates of its two restaurants and catering operations. Rancho Valencia became the San Diego region’s number one resort with both a Forbes 5 Star rating and AAA 5 Diamond rating.

Chef Jarrod will oversee all culinary aspects of The Patio Group, from menu enhancements to efficient kitchen operations with his team of chefs and world class restaurant professionals.
When not in the kitchen, Jarrod Moiles is a devoted father and husband, and a fitness enthusiast enjoying the Southern California lifestyle.
