About Karina
I'm a mom to wildly adventurous 2 yr old. Originally from Texas, we've spent the last 4 years in NYC so I could pursue my passion for merchandising. Now back in Austin, we're on the heels of opening a thoughtfully curated baby shop, inspired and lovingly named after our daughter Alexa James.

It is never too late to be whoever you want to be.

Words you live by/quotes you love

It is never too late to be whoever you want to be.

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

Since community is super important us we will be hosting regular free mom/kid focused events, like story times, sleep expert seminars and happy hours for mom.

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Time management, time management, time management! Between my current 'stay at home mom' role and my store opening next month, I find myself with endless "to-dos" and not nearly enough time to do them.

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

Austin is home to many well known, established women/moms. It would be great for one of them to shop, love the store and share their experience.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

Because starting a business while being a mom takes support, inspiration and much needed wine nights! And this seems like a pretty amazing place to get all of the above.
