About Me: A beach girl from Hawaii now living in Seattle with my family. I am mama to my little girl Adalyn and fur baby Maui. Coincidentally they have the exact same birthday, so you could say I have twins! Being a mom is my first priority but it is also important for me to balance it with a career. My hope is that my daughter will look to me as a role model and know that she can achieve anything she puts her mind to. I was a digital marketing strategist at Microsoft and other companies for the last ten years, and started consulting when my daughter was born. She inspires everything I do and that is how Makena Beach Cafe came about and launched in January this year. Makena Beach Cafe is a life + style blog about mommy and me fashion, food and travel.
I'm Good At:
+Marketing to the mom and baby market
+Website and social media strategy
+Collaborating with brands, small businesses and mompreneurs
+Product promotions on Makena Beach Cafe (e.g., sponsorships, product reviews, giveaways)
Mama Likes: I love spending time with my family, whether it’s hiking on a trail, cuddling on the couch or exploring the city. I also enjoy photography, fashion, throwing dinner parties, decorating my new house and staying active with kickboxing and barre.
Mama Inspiration: There are SO many incredible moms I admire and learn from. If I had to name a few…
+J.K. Rowling for her strength and determination as a single mother on welfare when she wrote Harry Potter
+Giuliana Rancic seems like such a cool lady to hang out with; she balances work and family while looking fabulously stylish
Brands that most reflect your style or that you’d want to work with: My style is a blend between modern and feminine. Some labels I adore that come to mind include Isabel Marant, Chloe, Zara, Celine and Intermix.
Words you live by/quotes you love:
