Are you ready to finally
give yourself a break
as a working mom?

Excuse me.
Don't I know you?

You're the working mom who "has it all". Or at least you appear to. A great family - check. Significant other - check. Kids - check. Friends - check. A good job - check. You've checked all of the boxes, but you still feel like you're coming up short. You feel empty and exhausted from trying to do and have it all.

Well, I have some news for you. You don't have to do or try to be everything to everyone. The idea of a perfect mom, spouse, worker bee, friend, daughter, etc. doesn't exist. There's no way in hell to perfect everything in life. Believe me, I've tried. And you know what it got me? A one-way ticket to postpartum depression, anxiety and work burnout.

Want the good news? There's a better way. You don't have to be perfect all the time. You can create a place in your life for self-compassion. Space for self-care. And hacks for being more efficient and effective with your time and your energy.

If you're interested in joining a real tribe of women who are looking for a different way to live and work, join us.

I know you because I'm right there with you.

Yeah, you’re that mom. The mom hustling to do it all. The perfectionist who can’t live up to her own standards at home or at work. The critic who points out all the failures, never the victories. The smiling face that can’t enjoy her own life. The go-getter who doesn’t know what she wants.

Yes, I know you I'm right there with you. 

So, who am I?

I’m the woman who's passionate about helping you stop feeling like crap as a working mom - once and for all. I'm committed to giving you the resources you need to stand powerfully in your roles as a professional and a mother.

My Story


In 2011, my first daughter, Charlotte, was born. And so was the inner conflict that changed by life.

You see, at that time everything was fine. (OK, not really, but just go with it.) I had a loving husband. A beautiful, healthy baby girl. And a fast-growing career in financial services. But I also had something else: the illusion that I could — or even should — control it all. This led to unrealistic goals I couldn’t reach, self-imposed pressure I couldn’t endure and, quite simply, pain that I didn’t deserve. I later learned that I suffered from postpartum depression and anxiety for two years after my daughter was born and I'm still recovering 6+ years later.

The silver lining from this struggle was that I had a deep desire to no longer just create the outward appearance of everything being fine. I truly wanted to stop feeling like crap and to release the guilt of enjoying my roles as a mom and as a professional. I knew there had to be a better way.

So, I sought the help of a life coach. Together, we uncovered and faced the issues crippling my world: vulnerability, perfectionism, shame and unworthiness. She helped me step into who I wanted to be, not who I thought I should be.

The result? Well, I still have a loving husband. A beautiful, healthy not-so-baby girl and a new baby girl named Olivia. And a continued career in financial services. But I also have this: the ability to truly enjoy my own life on my terms. 

It’s my own journey that has inspired me to help working moms unlock their own potential — and enjoy the happiness that comes with it.
