    Stay the F@!# Home With… Danielle Mandella

    Are you staying the f@!# home? Why not?! Danielle Mandella is staying the f@!# home.

    Danielle Mandella is a comedian living with Cystic Fibrosis. Mandella routinely posts thoughtful and insightful insights about living her life with CF. Additionally, she was the recipient of a double lung over 15 years ago. Danielle was an early fan of the STAB podcast. She quickly found her way into contributing to the podcast as a guest. Several years later, when the STAB Comedy Theater opened, she helped with running the club. She eventually stepped down to take better care of her health.

    I asked to Danielle to be the final guest of the "Stay the F@!# Home With…" series because I want people to hear from someone who has a compromised immune system. She recommends going to the UCSF Health website to learn more about who is at greater risk of COVID-19.

    STAB Comedy Theater is also live-streaming a variety of performance, which you can see by going to www.twitch.tv/stabcomedy

    Rene Jacques and Cam Villa are the founders of are the founders of Golden Bay Mortgage Group. Both Cam and Rene have worked in the mortgage industry since the early 2000s. I invited them to be guests on the podcast because of their knowledge and experience in the mortgage industry. Because of the uncertainty many of us are experiencing around income, I thought they would be a great resource for anyone that has questions about their mortgage or if they’re thinking of buying a home.

    In addition to being business owners, both are involved in the community of Sacramento. Cam and I both live in the Colonial Heights neighborhood and became friends after meeting at a community event he started, the Colonial Heights Kickball League. Cam created the league to bring our neighborhood together, which was wildly successful for the community. Thanks for listening!
