Heartfelt compassion for community, to give more, and a passion/drive/ambition to live life to the fullest.
My biggest challenge is finding other working moms who are driven, entrepreneurial minded, and have a shared passion for succeeding in their work/career as well as family. Most moms I know have had to choose between one or the other i.e.-family or career.
Professionally I want to ensure that SmartStart grows in 2018 and is prepared for even bigger growth in 2019. Personally I want to make a bigger impact on individual lives by contributing more through my business because our work directly impacts the work of non-profits/foundations.
To do more work for non-profits/foundations, outside of universities.
I want to join heymama because the other women and mothers that are part of this community/network, share the same passion as myself. It's the group of women, I've been looking for in the OC and been waiting for it to not only be available in NYC but other cities/areas.
The passion that heymama has that I also share, is one that wants to embolden, support, and help other working mothers both personally and professionally. I don't want any mom to feel the way I did in 2016 after so much of my life had previously been defined by my career, and all of a sudden I had to choose between family or my career. I had lost my self-identity and yet was trying to raise a child with a lost sense of self. I was fortunate to eventually find myself again, professionally, when I acquired SmartStart, but I don't want other moms to have to go through such. I want to help working mothers re-define themselves or discover themselves/self-identity, and find/live their heartfelt passion aside from family.
At the same time, as a working mother I've also faced a tragic loss by losing my son, Wyatt. I want to help other moms find their way to overcome such loss, personally and professionally. All the while, through heymama I also need the support of other working mothers to also help me continue to overcome this loss through their own personal and professional mentorship/support.
