Kristen Ronan Public Relations Founder and President Fashion Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey
About Kristen
I am the Founder & President of Kristen Ronan Public Relations which is a New York-based communications consultancy providing strategic counsel to ready-to-wear and accessories brands in the womenswear space. I started my own business three years ago after holding senior level PR positions at Diane von Furstenberg and Farfetch in an effort to find balance between my career and personal life as I'm also a mother to three young girls: Leighton, Gwyneth and Eleanor. My days are anything but typical but one can generally find me handling client business in my home office while simultaneously playing a craft with my daughters. When I have a (rare!) moment to myself, I enjoy reading a good book, heading to a barre class or drinking a glass of wine with my husband.

Everything happens for a reason.

How many kids? Ages?

Leighton Ronan / Female / 5 years old
Gwyneth Ronan / Female / 3 years old
Eleanor Ronan / Female / 6 months old

Interested In

Friendship, Networking, Playdates

Words you live by/quotes you love

Everything happens for a reason.

Best advice you've ever been given

It's not what you say, it's how you say it.

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

My friends say I have a knack for listening well and giving great "life" advice so I suppose I'd like to give back to the community by acting as a resource for other women seeking a second opinion (no matter what the topic!).

Personal Passions, Charities, Hobbies:

Reading, traveling, skiing, taking barre classes, working with local charities in my area of New Jersey, volunteering on the Board of the Newcomers Club in my town, etc.

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Balancing Work & Motherhood

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:

The dark.

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

Take time to smell the roses.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I'm intrigued by the organization and what it offers to like-minded moms who want to make motherhood a priority but also achieve personal goals such as launching a new career or enhancing a past one. I understand what it's like to not have balance and flexibility between work and family so I'd like to help others who face this same struggle. I'd also love to meet other moms to expand my professional/social network because let's face it, we are all in the same boat and it's so nice to have a support group to talk to, lean on and interact with.
