Meet Sarah Brightwood
Sarah L. Brightwood is the president of Rancho La Puerta, a world-renowned wellness resort and spa located in Baja, California, Mexico. She is the daughter of the founders of the Ranch, Deborah Szekely and Edmond Szekely. Sarah spoke Spanish before English and was lovingly cared for by the Mexican families working at the Ranch. She continues the family legacy of tending to the same land for almost 90 years and continues to oversee major upgrades at the Ranch that have kept up with changing times. During the COVID lockdown, they worked on a huge project called The Residence, which is an eco-village that’s designed to support health and wellbeing.
