While being a mom is amazing - it’s not easy and it’s not a given that we even know what the heck we’re doing.

If you’re…

  • exhausted from all the ups and downs of motherhood
  • overwhelmed with all tasks that come with being a mom
  • wishing you felt more confident as a mother

It's easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of motherhood without taking time to really think about how we want motherhood to work into our lives. We become moms and often we just keep going without thinking too much.

I’d love to help  to you become a more thoughtful confident mom by reflecting on who you are and how that can work with being ‘Mom.’

As mothers, we need to learn how to more courageously own, clarify and express ourselves in this essential role, because when we do, we become stronger and our families become stronger. Everyone benefits.

With my unique background in career counseling and mindfulness, I encourage mothers to develop a strong sense of self-understanding in order to become a more self-aware mom. As a mom of 17 years - and still evolving every day - I can definitely relate!

Let’s work together to determine what’ll work best for you so you experience more joy and less stress on your motherhood journey. Sound good?

Through personal accounts, Amy shares the core attributes she learned from her babies which help to deepen one’s faith and stay grounded - even sane at times - as we bump up against the craziness in the world and help our children navigate through it.

“[Amy] assures her readers that their babies allow for a lifetime of mutual learning—and it’s a reminder that harried, sleep-deprived parents will be glad to take to heart.”   - Kirkus Reviews

With a fresh perspective on how a mother can learn from her baby, Amy, shares thoughtful insights that are sure to guide mothers to feeling peace, wonder and increased bonding with their infants.

I totally get it.

I’m a Mom, too.

If you’re ready to partner with a mom who gets you, and you’re ready to clarify your role and confidently express it, then you’re in the right place.

Before I had kids I had no idea what really went into being a mother.  I’m sure you can relate. And now, after two, I have a better understanding, but I’m still evolving - every day. 

I’m constantly trying to balance family and work, while making some time for myself, too. Being a mom is amazing, and it can also be overwhelming. Raising little people to become the best versions of themselves is hard work - especially as we’re learning on the job.

That being said, it’s still essential for us to make time for ourselves and reflect on how we’re evolving. The more aware we are on the journey of motherhood, the more empowered we feel on a daily basis. And that helps us with our ultimate goal: raising independent, healthy, compassionate adults.

Serving women this way is my mission.

Before becoming a mother, I worked as a career counselor. I loved it. My mantra became “Life is too short not to like what you do on a daily basis.”  Most of my clients were either too scared to change, or didn’t know how to change. Watching them recreate their lives was incredibly rewarding. 

A few years ago, I became certified to teach The Creative Insight Journey, a transformational class from Stanford University. The class teaches aspects of mindfulness and self-awareness through effective, simple-to-apply tools.

I started looking at the role of ‘Mom’ through the lens of a career counselor with a new-found respect for the importance of self-awareness. With my background as both as a career counselor and course facilitator, I encourage mothers to develop a strong sense of self-understanding in order to become more confident and self-aware.

This has evolved into initiating thoughtful conversations for moms. We don’t have to devalue our role as 'Mom' - in fact - we should be elevating its importance, while honoring the challenges. Too often I’ve heard mothers say they’re ‘just a mom’ or they’re overwhelmed as a mother.

I designed my online course to support all of us. It’s up to us to clarify the role of motherhood for ourselves.

The best part of teaching is hearing about the positive results moms see in themselves, and in their families.

When I left the hospital with my newborn, I remember thinking - “You expect me to just take care of her on my own?  Really? I’m still trying to figure life out myself!” This role doesn’t come with instructions. There are so many aspects to motherhood, there isn’t a degree you can earn, and you don’t get a trial period for the job.

So to support all the moms out there, I created this course.

It’s called, Moms: Courageous Women Raising the Next Generation.

We get to learn together, grow together and you get to carve out the time you need to design your role as “Mom”.

Being a parent is the biggest job we’ll ever have. It’s a huge responsibility, interlaced with love and joy. The key is to break it down into smaller chunks and think about certain aspects of motherhood so we can consciously decide what does and doesn’t work for us.

It’s not about being a ‘perfect’ mom - perfection isn’t real. But continual positive growth is real.

Become aware of who you are. Design your own path as ‘Mom’.

I want you to recognize the value you bring in raising the next generation.

I’m a fellow mom - part confidant, part hand-holder and part mentor.

I offer you a different perspective and that extra bit needed of insight, courage, creativity and fun.

Let’s envision what being a mom truly means to you.
