Birthday: June 4
About Me: I was an attorney (graduated from Cardozo in 2010) and then worked at Gilt City for over 2 years to expand their NYC business and improve their guide and marketing platform. I have always been a researcher and when I became pregnant, my curiosities peaked when it came to the topic of motherhood. My sister has always been my go-to person for advice, so when I started to ask my endless list of questions, we realized there needed to be a platform for women who have these same questions and are in need of sisterly advice. I was curious about nursing, baby products, early childhood education and development, and the list goes on. I wanted to share our findings, so other women have a resource and trusted guide to feel their best while developing that same profound appreciation of family that we have always felt.
Hire Me For/I'm Good At: I am an avid and thorough researcher, writer, and explorer. I am diligent in everything I do and love meeting and working with new people. I also have experience in marketing and sales through developing partnership ideas (for Gilt City and Mama & Tata).

Interested In: Collaborations, sponsorships, inspirational interviews and meetings (and always new friends!).
Mama Likes: I love fitness, especially dance cardio, private training and yoga. I am a huge foodie, cooking classes and trying new foods is a big part of my life. My third passion is travel and exploring new places and cultures.
Mama Inspiration: My mom and sister always come to mind first, Daphne Oz, Christy Turlington Burns, and Ivanka Trump.
Words you live by/quotes you love: 1. family is everything 2. What you think, you create, what you feel, you attract, what you imagine you become 3. Just go for it! 4. Be authentic to who you are
Best advice you’ve ever been given: The best advice I have ever received is from my mom and is to always have confidence, that worrying about things out of your control is useless, and exude the energy you want to attract. My mom is a working mom, a full time psychotherapist and has been the most influential person in my life. It has been especially helpful in pregnancy, where it’s easy to worry. I realize how important it is for your baby and yourself to be calm and confident and put out that type of energy in all aspects of your life. Positivity and confidence breed success and creativity, whereas negative or nervous energy can only be debilitating.
Worst advice you’ve been given: At a time where I was at a crossroads in my career, in terms of going for jobs with highest paycheck vs. jobs that related to my passion and happiness, I would say worst advice was to choose your career solely for money.
Biggest goal for this year? To grow brand and following to 100,000k and email subscriptions, and hopefully eventually expand to other markets/cities.
