What is the best advice for juggling mommy hood and running a business (or volunteering, working, etc)?
Patience is a big one and a lot of grace. There will be moments when you are completely overwhelmed and you feel that you aren’t doing anything right, and you think you aren’t enough for your family or your business. And you are enough, for your family, for your business! If you opened your own business, your following your passion. It isn’t always going to be easy, but it’ll be worth it.

Good Luck! You’re not really that tired!
What is your proudest mommy moment?
We go to church regularly, and I never know if it is sinking in or if they understand or care what is going on at church. But one day their teacher asked my older two what will they remember, and they both answered, “Our Baptism”. That moment made me really happy.
What is your favorite thing to do in the HKA area?
The parks, The bowling alley. We love all the parks!
