About Me : Colorado Native who has spent years in NYC and LA. Full time mom working in fashion and blogging about gifts, fashion, travel and lifestyle. I'm obsessed with kid clothing brands and love buying from small businesses that I discover on Instagram. I love Soulcycle and have been a dedicated rider since they opened in NYC. I enjoy meeting new people and connecting through various mom groups, conferences and school activities. I'm usually found chasing my kids around the soccer field or seeking out new art exhibits or things to do in LA.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?: While I've lived in Los Angeles for almost 6 years, I still feel like I haven't found that Mama entrepreneur group. After I had my daughter in NYC I found an amazing group of mamas who have all gone off to launch amazing brands and run big businesses. I miss that connectedness and strong mom collaboration that would inspire and motivate me to strive for bigger things. I love learning about new businesses, how people have built their brands and meeting new like minded women who inspire and motivate me to do better in my life as a mom and business woman. Being a part of heymama would be a perfect place for me to continue to build relationships and learn from other strong women who are trying to be their best self, mom, business owner every day.
What are your brand goals for this year?: To find brands that we can collaborate with and continue to grow our viewers.
Words you live by/quotes you love: To start each day with a grateful heart
You never know how strong you are until strong is the only choice
Best advice you’ve ever been given?: When you need help, ask for it, no one can ever do everything alone. We learned this after a life altering event with our daughter forced us to ask for help.
