About Dee
I am an LA lady and mama who loves my city and community! We just moved into the Historic West Adams area and we are so overwhelmed by the love we are experiencing here! I am an interior designer and creator, and am most happy when I see my work come to life (and the joy on my clients' faces). My kiddos and husband support me unconditionally and I give my all to give them my best (although I am constantly questioning myself... mom guilt is FOR REAL). In my "spare" time I love to surf and travel and explore my own city. I am so grateful for the new mamas and creatives I meet almost every day... there is so much inspiration to give and to be found!

No is not an answer... it is a road sign

How many kids? Ages?

2, Parker (5) and Avery (2).

Interested In

Business, Collaboration, Sponsorship, Mentoring, Friendship, Playdates

Best advice you've ever been given

Admit to your own mistakes (show vulnerability)... and always be YOU!

Personal Passions, Charities, Hobbies:

Surfing, photography and travel (I would drag my family all over the world if we had the time!). I have also become a member of the Alliance of Moms, a membership-based auxiliary group that supports the work of the Alliance for Children’s Rights. They are a new generation of philanthropists whose mission is to break the intergenerational cycle of babies born to teens in foster care.

What do you want to achieve in 2018, personally and professionally?

More brand awareness for my interior design, and also for my blog. I'd love to have more collaborations and sponsorships!

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:

Is it horrible to say that I just don’t say that anymore? I really view everything as an opportunity (sounds cheesy I know). But a big tarantula –sized spider? Ok… I’m still scared of that.

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

If I could hire someone to do my social media, I would. I find it increasingly hard to be on my phone as much as social media demands! I’d rather be with my family, or in the moment wherever I am, and not staring at my phone. But it is such a VITAL part of our world now!

If you could tell your 20 year old self one thing, what would it be?

Don’t be afraid to ask for/get help/find a mentor! I have always had trouble asking for help (pride? Perfectionism?). It’s ok (and supremely beneficial) to seek out the advice of others who have knowledge to give! I think it would have smoothed out some of those bumps in the road for me, if I had just asked for a bit more help when I needed it!

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I think that we all need support and inspiration. I love when I sit with a bunch of women and we open up and allow ourselves to feel fear, guilt, sadness, or whatever it may be... and then to lift each other up and to say "we got this"... we ROCK!
