What are you currently excited about either personally or professionally?
I am currently excited to continue to grow our business and for the baby I'm growing inside. Pregnancy can feel like a lifetime so I'm just excited to get through each day! Ha
How did you begin your career in jewelry design, how has it changed since becoming a mother?
I started my jewelry line in 2010 as a creative outlet. It was more of a hobby while I had a career in fashion, but I finally gave it my full attention over the last 2 years. I use the term "full attention" lightly. With a 2-year-old and a 5-year-old, nothing gets your full attention. Since becoming a mother I've learned how to use my limited free time more efficiently and productively. Also, I definitely learned the importance of prioritizing.
As mother's, we're forever looking towards other moms for advice, we'd love to hear yours.
Ahhh. My advice is to not take other mother's advice and go with your gut. We are all different parents with different children that have different needs. What works for my kids and our family may not work for yours. Mothers put so much pressure on themselves. Mom guilt is a very real thing. We all need to just try and relax and trust ourselves.
What are you working on improving about yourself as a woman and mother?
I am very reflective and constantly trying to improve myself as a person and a mother. As my children grow, they require a different side of me, so I am always looking to evolve alongside them.
