Skip and Play Co-founder Family New York, NY
About Amy
I've been in NYC for four years but was in LA for 10 years prior and still call that home. I've been married for over 7 years and after a very long journey, am expecting my first little one this summer. I cofounded Skip and Play last year and we've been hustling since then!

How many kids? Ages?

/ Male / 3 months old

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

Anything I can do to help with what children need developmentally from ages 1-4. I have two master's degrees in Child Development and those are the ages I studied. I was also an admissions director at a Private High School in Santa Monica for four years, and can provide any knowledge with ISEE, the entrance process, etc.

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

My biggest challenge is doing this company in NYC! If we were in a city like Dallas, or anywhere with more space, that would be much more ideal! Because our company has product, we're striving to be creative on how we can manage our lack of space here.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

So I just left my corporate job last summer to take a leap and start a business. When I worked with kids in Child Development the number one question every parent asked me was, "what toys should I get my kids?" That question came up again when my cofounder had her baby and we decided to take action. What I didn't realize in taking the leap was how isolating it would be. Going from working with coworkers and having that built in community, to working in our storage space and not having others around was harder than I imagined. Seeing the community Heymama has built really inspires me and it's also something that I hope to not only benefit from, but give back to!
