What do you love about being a working mom?
I love being creative—thinking out of the box, being collaborative, problem solving—working with an amazing team—lots of moms!
I’m an entrepreneur at heart, so I love being a part of the leadership team and learning from my counterparts—from product development, sustainability/operations, marketing and sales. I also love learning from my CEO and founder. ILIA is a pool of successful, passionate, balanced humans.
I love being an example to my daughter. I love showing her that time is an illusion—that you can truly be present at every moment—it’s a choice.
What is the biggest challenge of being a working mom?
Constantly negotiating what’s the best use of time. Working remotely is challenging because you’re home, but you’re also working.
Being a mom is everything to me, so I miss driving her to/from school or showing up for her school events and activities because I’m working.
If you had a magic wand, what one thing would you change about working mom life?
I would duplicate myself! So, I can be at two places at once.
I’d play with Coco, embrace my professional hobbyist self, and practice my reiki, cranial sacral, soundbaths on other moms…help balance them!
What tips do you have for other working moms?
Be kind to yourself.
Take time for self-care, mediate, go on walks, move, and eat mindfully.
Any relationship tips for working moms?
Lean on your partners and community.
What's the best piece of advice your own mother gave you?
Practice gratitude, trust in miracles, and manifest your life.
You have free will!
What stresses you out?
I get migraines, so that’s debilitating. I’ve also been on a long journey of IVF trying to have another child. We’ve done 8 embryo transfers and have 1 child from it. So taking time to take care of myself (spirit, body, mind) to bring another child into this world.
I craft, play soundbowls, mother other mothers, practice gratitude, work with my hands, take daily walks in Topanga Canyon with my 15 year old mini-labradoodle, and lean into my girlfriends.
How and why do you take CBD?
To destress-drop in. Shut my busy mind, and help with achy joints.
