Meet Our Footwear Professionals
Koa, Marketing Director for Birkenstock of San Diego
Hi There! I've been with the Birkenstock team since September 2003. I began as a sales associate at our Palm Springs, CA store and moved up and on from there. No I'm based at our Encinitas, CA location running the marketing end of things for the stores. This has been one of the most fulfilling positions that I've ever had. We work for a family, as a family, and we're given the opportunity to spread the word of comfortable footwear.
My Footwear Preferences
Some of my favorite footwear brands will usually be built with a wide toe box. I love my Birkenstocks, Chacos, and Olukai sandals. I usually wear flip flops most of the year. For athletic purposes I'll wear Salomon or Merrell. For boots or closed toe options I usually wear UGG, OTZ shoes, Sorel, or Sanita.
I'm a mother of almost two boys. I have a toddler and one on the way (just a few more weeks!). I like to stay active with running and working out. I love going to the beach, hiking, swimming, and chasing after my kid(s). I try to have proper footwear for all of these activities. I like feeling prepared for anything, so I like what I wear to be adaptable for any type of terrain or weather. I don't like to have to think about my shoes - just go.
