RM StyleMama: Maria Villamil – Building Dreams

This week’s StyleMama, Maria Villamil, is a computer professional who oversees the research and development, construction, Information Technology, and manufacturing of WET for its internationally recognized water installations.  While her work may seem mechanical to some, she works hard to highlight to her daughters the marriage between science and building dreams. “I get them involved in solving problems and doing experiments that are related to my work. I try to enforce the concept that if one can dream something up, then it can be done,” says Maria.

Home: San Marino, California
Age: 38
Children: Two girls (7 and 4 years old)

Occupation: Mom/wife/Chief Executive Officer
Maria lists her occupational highlights in this order: mother of two beautiful girls, wife to an amazing husband, and CEO of WET.  She prides herself for making as much time for her family as possible, while maintaining a demanding career.

WET is a design, engineering, and manufacturing firm that specializes in large water feature installations like the fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas, the largest water feature in the world in Dubai, Aquanura in de Efteling in the Netherlands, along with other celebrated installations around the globe

How does she look so good?
Maria tries not to deprive herself of her favorite foods, but maintains a healthy diet by eating in moderation. She works out 2 to 3 times a week doing interval training, but also gets her workouts on family walks and helping her 7-year-old with soccer training.

Her Style:
My full time look (except on the weekends) tends to be feminine. I try to be comfortable with the dresses that I wear. I love Diane von Furstenberg’s wrap dresses. I like mixing classic good quality accessories like designer handbags and shoes with affordable dresses like my black Zara dress. I like vintage style dresses, preferably the feminine 50s or 60s dresses. I mix and match them with modern accessories like belts, jewelry, and shoes.” – Maria Villamil
