Quick Bio: Happily married for 7 years now, a stay at home mom and an entrepreneur. As a young girl I always dreamed of being a mommy and having 3 kids which included a set of twins. I’m proud to say my dreams have become a reality! Having twins has put an amazing dynamic into our family life and definitely keeps us on our toes! I recently partnered with the Dr’s who created Proactiv in their new skincare company, Rodan + Fields Dermatologists. With this business I’m able to be at home with my children and witness all the milestones of their early years. I dedicate part-time hours for full-time pay.
Q: How do you balance being a Mommy and keeping your sense of self?
A: Starting my business has definitely fulfilled my need to interact with adults and socialize with other women. Being a stay at home mom takes a toll on you physically and mentally. This opportunity has been such a blessing in my life. For the first time I’m actually doing something I absolutely love and I’m creating financial freedom for my family while doing it.
Q: What is your favorite piece of advice to new Moms?
A: Set a schedule as soon as you can. Whether you have 1 baby or 3, get their routines down so you can plan out your day and know exactly when your breaks will be.
Q: How would you describe your parenting style?
A: I’m very affectionate and understanding. I’ve learned each child’s individual needs. What works for one child won’t always work for another.
Q: What’s your most memorable Mommy moment to date?
A: I recently put Stella down for a nap without her sleep sack. An hour later I went to check on her because she was fussing and to my surprise, she had her pants off, diaper off and pee’d all over her crib!!!
Q: As a Mommy what is it that you feel you do “right”?
A: I like to raise my children to be very independent. Yes, it means they grow up a little faster but it makes me proud to see that the twins can brush their teeth, feed themselves, settle themselves to sleep in their own room and that my 6 year old showers herself and gets straight to her homework after school. I also talk to my kids in a calm voice, especially when they are fussy. You always want to lead by example.
