My Story

“We choose our own happiness. We pave the road of our destiny. Life is a sequence of events…some sweet & some spicy. It’s up to us how we build our recipe of life.”

As a young girl, I was easy-going but was always firm on my beliefs and desires in life. I had a vision of myself with a career, a loving husband, a few kids, a beautiful home and most importantly, a harmonious life. Even at a young age, I knew how important it was to find peace.

My vision started to become true when I met my husband in high-school and we became each other’s first boyfriend/girlfriend. In 2007, we decided to become co-pilots for the long-haul and got married. We’ve been together 18 years and counting…I’m not sure when we quite evolved into “grownups” but I’m glad we did it together.

 

In 2011, we were lucky enough to become first-time parents to our eldest son. V brought an immeasurable amount of joy into our life. I didn’t realize how much I would love being a mom and to my surprise, it came naturally to me. He quickly became the center of my world and I absolutely loved it. I beam with pride as I celebrate my little boy and the intelligent, sensitive and amazing big brother that he is today.

A couple of short years later, we decided to grow our family, and I became pregnant with our baby #2. V was over the moon and told us he wished for a brother. His wish came true with the addition of AJ to our little family–my strong-willed, ridiculously cute, middle son. AJ challenges me as a mom, every single day and also knows how to make me laugh like nobody else.

Even though we were happy, our family of four just felt like there was someone missing. That little missing person joined us in 2017 after a short pregnancy; well, it was 9 months, but when you’re mommin’ hard to two other kids, it just zips by!

J is my angel baby and I’m thankful for the opportunity to be a “new mom” all over again. I have learned the art of mindfulness this time around, knowing how quickly it all passes and how important it is to maximize on the small moments.

As for my career, I have a background in Project Management and Six Sigma Lean Methodologies. What that means is I like to get the job done and I like to find the fastest and most effective way to do it. This pattern has always been a part of me–even as a child, I remember doing my best but always finding a shortcut.

After about a decade contributing to a variety of companies across Corporate America, I landed in the Well-Being industry. I enjoyed my job and while thriving as a Senior Product Manager, I learned about components to achieving overall well-being to remain healthy, happy and successful throughout life.

To honor my own well-being and achieve the lifestyle I wanted for my family, I decided to swap my work badge for burp cloths–my heart was with my little ones and to feel like I had enough time with them, the best option for our family was to hit the pause button on my career. I always knew that a career was important to me, but I trusted the universe that there is a time for everything.

“I was satisfied being able to focus on my family the way I wanted and quickly found a way to remain creative and stay in touch with my Self.”

I took on writing by starting a blog about motherhood to candidly, yet humorously share our parenting hurdles. We learned how to bring calm into the chaos and I loved sharing our story along the way.

I was encouraged when a few online magazines published my articles and I received positive feedback and encouragement from readers, namely other moms.

In fact, it made me realize how deeply I desired to help others. So much, that I decided to pursue my certification in Parent Coaching.

“I was able to combine my professional expertise of organization & optimization, and personal ingredients for maximizing joy in my own journey of motherhood to fuel my passion to help others.”

Being a mother is my greatest pride and joy. Helping other moms make their life easier and achieve their goals is deeply gratifying.

I strongly believe we all have a shot at making this parenthood journey beautiful and fulfilling. We have this incredible responsibility to shape the future. We have this amazing opportunity to have connection and love with these beings that chose us for parents.

The thing is, sometimes we just need a little help with the right ingredients…

With Love,
