About Nikita
I am one half of the creative team behind The Rebel Mama (.com) - a "mom blog" for rebellious women. At TRM, we believe that the kindest thing we can do for ourselves (and our sanity) is acknowledge that there is more than one formula for a healthy family dynamic and more than one kind of woman who can be a good mom.

You can be a mom and be different; you can be a mom and be unapologetic, or politically incorrect, or vain, or crass, or selfish, or ANYTHING – just be who you are and own that sh*t.

The woman you're becoming will cost you people, relationships, spaces, and material things. Choose her over everything.

Interested In

Collaborating, Networking

Words you live by/quotes you love

"The woman you're becoming will cost you people, relationships, spaces, and material things. Choose her over everything."

Best advice you've ever been given

The first draft will suck. Write it anyway.

Personal Passions, Charities, Hobbies:

I'm most passionate about supporting female storytellers and providing a safe (and beautiful) space where women (more specifically, mothers) can speak their truths without fear of judgement and ridicule. I believe strongly in the need for Gender Equality, but I believe that we cannot get there without Gender Equity. We will only be able to achieve Gender Equity if women are encouraged to share their stories and voice their grievances. How can we reasonably expect to find practical solutions to female-specific problems if we (as women) are not given the grace to admit they exist in the first place?

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

Our book will be launching in May and the promo around that is our biggest current mission. We are also adding a new style of Rebel Mama merchandise and we hope to expand our "offline influence" further with more speaking engagements (I've already participated in three this year!) and event planning / hosting.

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:

The thought of a transcontinental flight alone with both my children.

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

If "The Rebel Mama's Handbook for Cool Moms" got on the New York Times Best Sellers List.

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

Don't get too wrapped up in "The Plan." Your success will be measured by how quickly you can come up with a new plan when shit hits the fan!

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I have been following Heymama since the beginning (we started around the same time) and to see the company grow while staying true to its original mission has been a beautiful and straight-up inspiring process to watch. Now that we're at a level where we can justify paying a membership fee (you guys know that small-business-owner life), I knew that your network would be the only one I'd consider joining.
