Best advice you've ever been given

When having a conversation - especially complicated ones - to suspend all judgments. You just never know what someone may be going through. Therefore, it’s important to be KIND at all times. Listen to understand; you will be surprised what you may hear.

Personal Passions, Charities, Hobbies:

I love to travel with my children. So we do it at least twice a year.

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

To collaborate with like-minded artist + socially responsible brands; to work on an editorial and have it published in a popular children’s fashion magazine.

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:

Leaving my kids without a mom/dad.

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

Just finding the time to blog! I think i'm currently making progress, however.

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

To LIVE life! Not just exist, but truly live. And, that fear is NOT real.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I felt a sense of community when reading the mission + goals, and everyone else’s story - I believe it has a lot to offer me. To have a community is one thing, but when it's consists of a diverse set of people from all walks of life…that's golden and to me represent how important inclusion is to this community!
