About Marie
Raised between Japan, Hong Kong, and SF. Now an oncology social worker, mother to a mischievous two year old daughter, side hustler for her newly launched clothing brand, irro irro, and wife to a hubby who supports her through it all. While irro irro is for all women and girls, the initial dress was inspired by her patients who expressed they wished they had something soft like her dress to wear during their cancer treatment. She hopes to expand her audience so more women going through cancer treatment can be comfortable and empowered to feel good about themselves.

"Small steps every day go a long way."

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

My professional background is in social work, so that means I spend a lot of time counseling, and providing tips on stress management, fatigue, and cognitive behavioral therapy when our minds have disruptive thoughts. If these are tools that could be of help to other moms, I would be happy to share!

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Funding & Finance

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

Eli has shared with me how helpful the Hey Mama community has been for her, and I’d love to connect with other moms and learn practical business tips. Because I have no background in business or the entrepreneurial world, I would love to get tips and suggestions on how I can grow my brand and reach a larger audience.
