Kalika Yap is a thriving serial (concurrent) entrepreneur whose businesses include award-winning brand agency Citrus Studios, Luxe Link, the Waxing Co., the Tangerine Co. Mavens Media Group & OrangeandBergamot.com. Her companies have been featured in publications such as Entrepreneur, The Huffington Post, The Today Show and MSNBC.

A native of Honolulu, Hawaii, Kalika started out working as a journalist for CNBC and Bloomberg after graduating from NYU, before making the move to the West Coast — the first step on her continuous entrepreneurial journey.
But Kalika defines success not just by her businesses’ bottom line. Her time at the J Paul Getty Trust infused in her the importance of giving back. She integrates the value-based culture of philanthropy within all her business units and has been an active member of key entrepreneur groups such as Entrepreneur’s Organization and the National Association of Women Business Owners. She has been honored by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) as well as Farmers Insurance, HOPE (Hispanas Organized for Political Equality), and the California Latino Legislative Caucus.
As devoted as she is to her businesses, Kalika’s husband Rodney Yap and their two daughters Malia and Kailani are her greatest treasure and she loves spending her off time with them in their home in the Pacific Palisades.
