Born a citizen of the world to a Colombian mother and Iranian father in West Virginia, Cepee spent all but 9 months of her childhood growing up in the Lone Star State and proudly considers herself a Native Texan. Although her parents were from South America and the Middle East, her passion for travel didn’t start until high school when she befriended a group of foreign exchange students. At 17 she took a trip to the Netherlands to visit one of these friends unaware that this would be the most pivotal moment in her life.
Her first trip abroad prompted a deep and magical love affair with travel and self-exploration that continues till this day, 20 years later. In 2015 she moved to Madrid, Spain (at the age of 35) and snagged her first remote job, a dream position that allows her to balance both work and travel. She works in social media marketing and community building and spends most of her free time making She Hit Refresh awesome!
