Best advice you've ever been given

Keep your eyes on your own paper.

-it's your journey, no one else's. you can always look to the right and to the left and become discouraged with what other papers look like keep the focus on yours and you will end up where you want to be.-

What are three things people would be surprised to know about you?

I don't know how to whistle!!!!

Personal Passions, Charities, Hobbies:

Personal passions: music, food, hanging out with my boys, making others feel good Charities I love: Alliance for Childrens' Rights (Alliance of Moms member), Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House Charities, Food on Foot, Baby2Baby Hobbies: going out to dinner with friends, drinking wine, golfing, traveling

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:

I guess I'd have to say failure...which is so ironic because you need to fail in order to succeed and maybe fail over and over again before you even succeed. Even though I know this, it terrifies me and I hate that feeling. But I guess that's what keeps me going and keeps me from giving up.

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

You don't have to spend so much time preparing for EVERYTHING! You have to learn how to roll with the curve balls as they come at you and figure it out in the moment.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I'm inspired by other moms who find the beauty and challenge of balancing a working life/mom life. I want the support and sense of community from other mamas that know we are all in this together! I'd like to be a helpful resource for mamas when they want to take their kid to dance class. I feel like there's so many heymamas I could learn from, collaborate with and help. There's also a fascination in everyone's individual path and knowing how they got to where they are and how that can inspire all of us in our journey.
