About Me: I am a creative entrepreneur. Seven years ago, I left the advertising world to start an event planning company with my partner Paige Appel.

We are currently shifting creative gears to open a lifestyle brick and mortar boutique called MIDLAND.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?: What an incredible group of women to be associated with. I have always been inspired by the creative working mama. It takes a lot to be a mom as we know, there are the daily demands of our precious littles and our homes and our families. It also takes a lot to run a successful business. It's like having another child to care and provide for. This community is strong and powerful and meant to be celebrated. It's the very inspiration behind The Great Jane.
What are your career goals?: To keep challenging myself and growing creatively. The possibilities are boundless if we allow ourselves the freedom to discover ourselves again and again.
Words you live by/quotes you love: "Try not to resist the changes that come your way. Instead let life live through you. And do not worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side you are used to us better than the one to come? - Rumi
Best advice you’ve ever been given?: "You do you." I've learned over the past 7 years that following my own course and listening to my gut and heart has always led to success. Getting caught up in the external presents doubt and trips up our own process. Set off on your own path and you will go far.
