About Me : I love living in West LA and balancing motherhood, work, friendships and being a wife. I've loved the experience of becoming a mama for a million reasons, but two that stand out are: the love I feel for my children is unparalleled, and the community of mothers that have become dear friends has been a welcome, wonderful surprise.
Professionally, I'm a big believer in building networks, sharing knowledge in a transparent way, and cheering each other on. I love learning, and have always been passionate about pursuing my career ambitions as well as mentoring others. After becoming a mama I launched my brand strategy consulting business which has enabled me to continue doing what I love while being a very present mom.
Personally, I adore exercise (yay for pilates + yoga), exploring LA, traveling + sushi! Plus, mama's nights out, date nights and some spa time mixed in are all important to me. I value experiences over possessions.
