I am driven to become the woman I needed as a girl.
Moms Wear Heels
What is it that fuels you? For me, it’s becoming my best self for myself, my children and community. I created Moms Wear Heels to document and share my journey of balancing it all as a mom of 3 on a mission to live her dreams and be the best mom I can be.
She understands that becoming her best self is not selfish; in fact, doing so improves her entire family’s life, as well as her community. She understands that her children will do as they see her do, not as she lectures them to, so she leads by example. She takes pride in caring for her physical, emotional, and spiritual needs so she can serve from a full cup. She lives an authentic, healthy, happy life.
How MWH was born:
I had just had my son, my first child in 2012. I, on one hand, was deliriously overjoyed and in love with this human I'd just made with my husband, but on the other, I felt lost, isolated, and pressured to conform into everyone else's idea as to what a "good mom" entailed.
I would toss and turn at night wondering why all of a sudden I felt guilty about pursuing the things I loved like dance, being a TV personality, and being a businesswoman.
One morning when I looked in the mirror a few months postpartum--hair dishevelled, skin in desperate need of help, and 50 pounds I'd gained from my pregnancy still stubbornly clinging to my body I realized--enough are enough! I decided that day while my baby boy napped that I was not going to let myself go and use my child as an excuse. I gave myself permission to be me as a mom, not whom society was pressuring me to be. I started a home workout program, graduated from college with my BA, and even wrote my first book about balancing motherhood with destiny and purpose. Writing that book opened more doors to television, and I made it my mission to share what I had learned thus far in motherhood:
That we can be great moms and go after our dreams! Moms Wear Heels too!
