About Just Irvine

Hello and welcome to Just Irvine! We are so excited to have you!

hello my name is just irvine

Montpelier, Park City, Ketchikan, and Aspen. Do you know what all of these cities have in common? Their population is smaller than the number of residents living in the community of Woodbury in Irvine!

Living in a city the size of Irvine can sometimes mean more traffic, more competition and a lot of noise. But the good news? Having a big city also means we have so many diverse people doing such amazing things right here in the city we call home. Just Irvine was created for people who love this awesome city in our corner of Orange County. The City of Irvine is now over a quarter of a million people big!

On Just Irvine, you’ll read about business owners, athletes, chefs, students, local leaders and so many more people who we are so lucky to call our neighbors. We will be covering a wide range of topics but the one theme that will run throughout each article will be the inspiration and motivation that you will feel from reading about your amazing Irvine neighbors.

Reading about random celebrities and international business people can be interesting too but there’s something so much more tangible when you hear from people in our city. By reading these stories, we hope you feel like you learned a little bit more about Irvine but also, and more importantly, we hope you feel inspired to dream BIG. We hope you’ll enjoy our stories as much as we’ve loved writing them.
