Tell us a little bit about your family and your Boss Mom journey.
I’ve been happily married to the love of my life and living in Hawaii for the past 13 years. We have two kids now, an almost 4 year old daughter and a 8 week old son. Both of which have food sensitivities. My husband and I are both entrepreneurial and both active in non-profits. After having my daughter and returning to my day job I realized that I could not do the non-profit work, be a parent, and advance in my current workplace. Something would have to give, especially if we had another child. I decided that the job/income portion of life is where the change needed to happen. I started working on my health coaching business and soon after became pregnant with our son. Trying to run a new business while pregnant was way harder than I expected! I was frustrated with the delays but now I see it as a blessing. A few weeks after my son was born I had real clarity as to who I wanted to serve in my business. My focus is breastfeeding moms with food sensitive babies. It seems like a very narrow niche, but it is perfect for me and my business.
What is your go to meal when time is tight and dinner must get on the table?
I keep most of my meals in individual serving sizes in the freezer, but if I need to cook last minute – I always go to ground meat (because it cooks quickly) with black beans and lots of colorful veggies served over brown rice. It’s quick, delicious, nutritious, and filling.
Where do you go for inspiration?
I usually need a quiet space to make room for new inspiration or ideas to come. I can’t really absorb what I’ve read/heard unless I have the quiet space to process. The best for me is exercising outside – hiking in the mountains, going for a walk, or swimming under water. It quiets my mind and provides that quiet physical environment too.
What are you currently reading or listening to (podcasts, books, blogs etc)?
Juggling a newborn makes it hard to read books or tune into much, but I love hearing about others pursuing their purpose and changing the world. Two of my favorite books that I frequently go back to are Chasing the Dragon by Jackie Pullinger and Tattoos on the Heart by Gregory Boyle.
What is one piece of advice you’d give to a Boss Mom just starting out?
Pursue your purpose first each day and everything else will fall into place and work out easier.
What is one word you’d use to describe your life as a Boss Mom? Adventurous
What are three core values of your business and how do those values relate to your motherhood?
Simple. Natural. Health. I simplify everything in life, including motherhood. We just focus on loving each other, getting out and enjoying nature, and making healthy choices each day.
