Since 1974, Citizens Business Bank has been creating banking relationships by focusing on their customer and helping them achieve more for their business, their employees, and the communities they serve.
Their founder, George A. Borba Sr., was an enterprising dairy farmer and small business owner from Southern California. George saw a need to support other business owners in his community by helping them preserve and enhance the value of their companies. He shared his vision with a group of local business leaders who cared deeply about their community, and together they set out to design a new banking experience.
As a Filipino-American mom living in Southern California, Marie was raised speaking only English. Like herself and her husband, many families of different cultures didn’t pass on their native language to their children. She feels very fortunate to have her children in a Spanish Dual Language Immersion program. Their achievement in language learning is amazing, but she still constantly finds herself unable to bring more Spanish dialogue into their home. Marie learned that modeling the best linguistic pronunciation wasn’t necessary for learning a new language. In fact, daily practice and consistency were more valuable for new language learners.
Because she also wants to introduce Tagalog to her children, she wanted her books to keep the cost of learning a new language low while also keeping the time commitment flexible. Marie developed these dual language books, as a supplement to other language programs, to make it easier for parents to be part of their children’s journey to becoming bilingual or even trilingual!
In 2014, Face Your Fears Athletics was born out of our desire to enable athletes and individuals to band together and support one another in reaching their highest fitness potential. Since that day, their Valencia gym has grown to become one of the most welcoming and personalized athletic and fitness communities in the Santa Clarita area.
Face Your Fears Athletics mission is to build healthy bodies, by first building a healthy community. Without the community and shared experience of suffering, achieving, and sometimes even failing, FYF Athletics would be just a strength and conditioning program like any other. They strive to show their members that it’s bigger than you and that while this journey can be done alone, it’s a little easier and a lot more fun to do it together. They believe in the power of their Training Program. It is through this program that you will see heart and soul pushed into every workout, every lift, and every effort given; that is why they love it. Their mission as a gym and as coaches are to display this character, coach our athletes to this point and build lasting relationships along the way.
Founded in 1976 by Alan Richard Mootnick, the Gibbon Conservation Center (GCC) houses the rarest group of small Asian apes in the Western Hemisphere. They currently house 38 gibbons, representing five species. All are on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species list. One of them, the northern white-cheeked gibbon, is critically endangered.
The mission of the GCC is to promote the conservation, study, and care of gibbons through public education and habitat preservation. The GCC educate the public about gibbons, threats to their survival, and the actions the public can take to protect them. Each year, GCC provides educational tours for veterinarians, anthropology students, graduate students, K-12 school children, scout troops, and animal lovers of all ages. They also encourage noninvasive behavioral studies to increase global knowledge and understanding of gibbons, both captive and wild, as well as support ongoing field conservation projects in their countries of origin.

Joe Fernandez began working in the mortgage industry in the early 2000’s. After the collapse of the housing market in 2008, he transitioned into working for a retail mortgage lender. During this time, he began to realize how out-of-touch the industry was with their clients and the community. If a loan didn’t fit the square, the client would be turned away and left behind. Additionally, he began to realize how working with a big corporation for a mortgage was actually costing their clients more money in the long run due to the cost of doing business and hidden fees.
With over 20 years of experience in the mortgage industry, NXT Step Solutions provides their clients with top-tier, personalized and family-focused service. At NXT Steps Solutions, you’re not just another number. They care for you like family because — well, they are a family.
