“I’m mom to two of the coolest kids I know and a rambunctious puppy. I have a wonderful, tolerant husband who is my best friend and a darn good pancake flipper. We all live in the sunny suburbs of Los Angeles. Did I say sunny? I meant sweltering.
I’m also a life and career coach obsessed with empowering moms to find careers they love, create systems to simplify their lives, prioritize what’s important and get a HEAP more done in a day. I eat, sleep and dream this stuff. Mostly happy dreams, except for one recurring nightmare about a pile of laundry that chased me down the street while my neighbors looked on with disapproval. (True story.)
Mothercraft was born out of the chaos that ensued when I left my hip and lucrative dot-com career and became a “Homie” (that’s Mothercraft-speak for stay-at-home mom). Life looked peachy from the outside, lots of picnics at the park and board book marathons. How I felt on the inside was another story altogether. I was suffering from what I can only describe as a full-blown identity crisis. I had traded my job with all its perks, notoriety, travel and fabulous income (friendships, social status… I could go on) for sweatpants, diapers and Blues Clues. Many of my friends swiftly returned to work, and though I knew they were struggling with their own emotional tug-of-war, I envied their life away from domesticity and I longed to use my skills and talents. I adored being home with my son, but I often found myself looking in the mirror and thinking, Who the heck is this puffy-eyed woman? And what has she done with the old me?
In the years that followed, I put myself back together like a giant puzzle. And I can help you do it too. It’s time to create a NEW vision of your motherhood, one that honors and respects ALL PARTS of you, not just the ones that you think belong to a “perfect mother” (News flash– there’s no such thing).”
