What does being a Millennial Mama mean to you? Being a multi faceted woman with lots of interests. I think millennial moms are pioneering a new outlook on being a mom and starting the conversation around having a full life and trying to minimize “mommy guilt”.
What inspired you to create your own business? I have always taken a long view on my life and knew I wanted to be in a position to make my own rules around work life balance. Having my own company allows me to be a bit more flexible.
Describe balance in your life. Balance is a constant target I am trying to hit. I truly believe it is essential to long lasting happiness. For me, balance is listening to myself and truly taking the time to evaluate where I am thriving and where I am lacking. I try and have those check ins regularly so I can devise a plan to shift gears. This could mean more “me time”, a fun dinner with girlfriends or a weekend away with my husband. It’s a work in progress.
We think that you are the epitome of modern motherhood. What does modern motherhood look like to you? I believe women are modernizing their ideas around issues we all face and speaking up for each other. Modern motherhood is supporting one another and creating your own rules.
What apps can you not live without? Instagram, Instacart, Gamsquad and Venmo

What does being a Millennial Mama mean to you? It means doing it all!
What inspired you to create your own business? I was born an entrepreneur. Ever since I was very young, I would figure out ways to make money. When I was about 6 years old there was a toy that I wanted that my parents would not buy me so I decided I would figure out how to earn the money myself. I took a box of Oreo cookies out of the pantry at my parent’s house and went door to door on my block selling them 3 for a dollar. While most people laughed and did not actually want the cookies, many still gave me a dollar, because they thought it was cute. Fifteen dollars later and I was hooked on figuring out how to create businesses to earn toy money!
Describe balance in your life – Balance is something that I continuously work to achieve. It is the ongoing battle of juggling being a mommy of two young boys as well as being a wife, a business owner, a daughter, a sister and a friend. There are never enough hours in the day and someone is always getting slighted. True balance for me is simply waking up every day grateful for all the wonderful blessings in my life and knowing I will do everything I can to be the best I can be today.
We think that you are the epitome of modern motherhood. What does modern motherhood look like to you? Modern motherhood is being everything to everyone and still managing to have a fresh blowout and perfect mani. I am unsure how people survived prior to grocery delivery, Amazon and Seamless. Without those things in my life, my family would starve and we would have no toilet paper. The juggle is real!
