Adventurer / Mom / Hairstylist
Violetta Bautista’s clients describe her as “unforgettable,” and that fits her perfectly. Born and raised in Poland, she grew up near Krakow and spent her holidays on her grandmother's farm where her love for the outdoors grew. Being raised in a place steeped in history by a family with strong heritage, her passion for travel began at age seven. Violetta has traveled to many countries in Europe including Spain, Great Britain, Austria, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. She loves traveling to Mexico and Central America, enchanted by their rich culture and beauty.
At age 20, she emigrated to the U.S. to be closer to her older sister and parents. While taking courses at Riverside City College, Viola, as her friends call her, also worked to save up for cosmetology school.
After obtaining her cosmetology license in 2001, she set forth to become a prominent Aveda salon stylist in Belmont Shore, California. The same year she met her future husband, Mark, and they have been happily married since 2004.
In 2005, they moved to Corona, CA and soon after welcomed their first son, Noah. Three years and three days later, they added Adam to their family.
Both Violetta and Mark enjoyed being parents to two boys who are busy in sports. Though having been in different sports and activities, the two boys eventually settled on cross country and track-n-field.
Violetta enjoys spending time with her family and close friends and craves adventure and outdoors. From hiking to mountain biking, to kayaking and riding ATV, she strives to stay active. Violetta also loves sushi and Mediterranean food, as well as many different cuisines, and enjoys cooking and trying new recipes. Violetta joined the Speed & Sport Adventures crew in 2022 and is an absolute incredible addition.
