Moms Wear Heels

What drives you? For me, it’s becoming my best self for my children, future generations, 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.

Who is a Moms Wear Heels Type of Mom?

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.

"She knows she can be a great mom and continue to evolve and grow as a woman."

About Monica

Have you ever thought you had to hang up your heels once becoming a mom? 

Hang up your self care? Your workouts? Your hobbies? Stop pursuing that dream? 

 

I did. When my son made me a mother in 2012, I desperately wanted to be a good mom to him--And I wrongly assumed that the only way to be a great mom was to give up on all the things outside of motherhood and homemaking.

You see, before (and during) my first pregnancy, I was finishing up my BA degree from home, running a business, working out consistently and professionally dancing on any stage that'd have me. I was creatively alive. Fired up. Living my destiny. And it wasn't until I became a mother that I wondered if I had to give that all up in order to the type of mother others and society told me I needed to be.

One day while nursing, I stared into my son's eyes and had an epiphany. If I was going to try to be the best mom I could be, I  needed to be an  authentic mom.  I decided I wanted him to know who his mom really is--not some idealized version of who society has trained us to think she should be.

 It was around that time as a young, nursing, deliriously tired and in love mom the idea for MOMS WEAR HEELS was born.

I wanted to create a space for women and mothers who still dared to continue their journey of evolving into the best versions of themselves...without the mommy guilt.

I realized as I started my fitness journey, blog, wrote my first book, and walked the stage as a college graduate, and competed in my first fitness competition (while nursing baby #2 backstage), that my refusing to settle was the best thing I could do for my children. I decided that was the legacy I wanted to leave.

Instead of quitting on my fitness, business and life goals, I decided to include my children and get creative. Sharing our journey has gotten us featured on media outlets such as BET,  The Doctors, Fit Pregnancy, NY Post, TEDx, People, CBS and more.  I've also had the pleasure of collaborating with brands such as JCPenney, Kroger, Kohl's, Toys R Us, GoGo squeeZ and much more. My mission is to continue to empower women to lead the life God's given you to lead...kids in tow and all.
