Guillermo and Karina own two of Turlock’s most successful restaurants Las Casuelas and Memo’s Cocina. Karina, 33 says that her most favorite things about her husband are his love for his family and for her and his willingness to try new things such as dancing! Karina is hoping that her experience with DWTTS will help her overcome her stage fright and she is excited to be involved in the community. Guillermo, 37 refers to Karina as “his beautiful wife and best friend” and is excited to be dancing in front of a large crowd to help the community.

Amber, 31, has been dancing for twenty eight years and is representing Sparks Dance/Gaslight Community Conservatory.  Amber has been on stage most of her life and was Miss Hughson in 2004, 1st runner up for Miss Stanislaus in 2005, and a member of the Deborah Morgan Dance Studio Bodies Electric competition team.  Amber volunteers with several non-profit associations including The Denair Gaslight and Turlock Youth Performing Arts, where she is also a choreographer.  Amber’s biggest achievement is her GROWING family which includes her wonderful husband, Tony, their son Reed who is 3 years old, and their daughter Rylee who is 6 months old! Amber is excited to be dancing for her 3rd season of Dancing With the Turlock Stars!
