Christina & Pedro Olivarez
Fiesta Medal Freaks
San Antonio has always felt like home for Rio Grande Valley natives Pedro and Christina Olivarez. The married couple has lived in the Alamo City for over seven years with the privilege to have the River Walk as their “backyard” while living in Downtown San Antonio.
Christina is the Founder & CEO of The Social Butterfly Gal. As a social media strategist, she is dedicated to amplifying your social media presence. She was born and raised in Mission, Texas. With more than 10 years of digital marketing experience, Christina works with brands to provide the strategy and solutions to help them effectively reach their consumers.
She’s achieved success with leading national events and brands such as Fiesta San Antonio, City of San Antonio, Downtown San Antonio, and Howl at The Moon, LLC.
In addition to SBG, Christina teamed up with her best friend of 20 years, Michelle Vallejo to co-found Hustle + Socialize. Founded in 2018, H+S brings the most diverse women’s business community of South Texas together and curates meaningful experiences that feature exclusive insights from amazing women leading in our communities. Christina is a 2020 fellow for New Leaders Council – San Antonio. In 2019, Christina was crowned Princess of Downtown by Fideo Loco Festival.
Pedro has 10 years of experience working for nonprofit organizations. His career in the nonprofit industry began in 2013 at the YMCA of Greater San Antonio as a Child Watch Attendant. There Pedro worked his way up through various departments: Health and Wellness, Membership, then as the Senior Program Director for the Boerne Family YMCA After School Program. Currently, Pedro is the Director of Guest Experience for the San Antonio Zoo.
Pedro was born in Harlingen, Texas and has lived San Antonio for the past seven years. When Pedro and Christina are not working, both enjoy spending time exploring San Antonio and the River Walk, traveling, drinking coffee at local coffee shops, and most recently, they’ve taken an interest in wine tasting.
Pedro and Christina are thrilled & honored to give back to a city they love so dearly by working with the San Antonio River Walk Association which serves to promote, protect and preserve one of the beautiful jewels of our city. Both hope that participating with the River Walk Royalty program will help bring additional attention and funding to sustain the beautiful River Walk and keep its historical legacy alive for generations to come.
