founder & CEO

Hello! I am a proud mama of two kids, and married to a husband who I describe as my 'secret weapon'  because none of this would be possible without his hands-on support and encouragement. Professionally, I work in the manufacturing industry. My background is in Chemical Engineering (UFlorida) and Energy Management (NYIT), and I am currently pursuing my MBA at the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School. 

I have always been a champion for women through numerous blogs, startups and organizations, however, it wasn't until immediately after my son's birth early 2018 that I noticed a gaping hole in the support for a mothers ambition, dreams and aspiration beyond motherhood. Being a mom, a new identity is formed and that ambitious girl with big dreams, hopes and personal goals sometimes disappear suddenly.

For me, being a daily chauffeur, cleaner, cook, referee and laundry manager took its toll. So, I made a promise to go looking for that "me" underneath these responsibilities and find other mamas like me. I knew that there had to be women who wanted to have an exciting, career, business or side hustle while creating space for their family. And I found them, many of them! We had dinner, hung out, and thats where the idea of a community for these amazing and talented women who are defining motherhood in their own unique way came about.

HEAD OF PROGRAMMING

Hi! I believe that every step in life has intentionally led me to this point, and I am so honored to be a part of Mother Honestly. Through different roles at a variety of small and large companies I’ve gained expertise in marketing, sales and customer service. Outside of work I am the wife of a Railroad Conductor whose schedule changes regularly, a mother of an energetic (and very Irish) red-headed toddler and two dogs, and the oldest of five siblings.

I’ve learned that the best way I can take care of these important people in my life is to first take care of myself. I enjoy fashion and love the way a new outfit can make you feel, yet I can usually be found in a sweatshirt, yoga pants & flip flops. I can have the memory of a goldfish at times so I tend to make a lot of to-do lists, but it works for me!

My weakness is a cheeseburger and fries.  I am a huge advocate for mental health and see a therapist regularly. No shame. And in my downtime (it does happen sometimes), I love sipping on a glass of wine while binge-watching Sex and the City. But, my true passion is to make others around me feel happy and loved. My ultimate goal is to use my professional skills as well as my experience as a mother to create meaningful content and high-impact programs to empower fellow mamas to live their lives in a fulfilling way.
