1 . Who are the members of your family?
My husband Randy, Blake (is almost 4 years old) and Shane (is 8 months old).
2. What is or was your career?
I work as a Human Resources Specialist for GE’s Grid Solutions business. Grid Solutions is the segment of GE that creates products & services for the transmission & distribution of electricity from the point of generation to consumption.
For the last 7 years I have been very fortunate to be able to work from home! GE’s culture supports a work-life balance that allows me to make my own schedule and allows me to take care of my family’s needs.
3. How long have you been a member of FIT4MOM of North Orange County and what has it done for you?
I joined Stroller Strides in September 2014. I am celebrating my 2 year anniversary this month!
This Village has given me a the “community” I was looking for when we moved to North Orange County. The Moms and their families have provided me parenting support & encouragement, community referrals, and friendship.
I also recently lost all my baby weight through Body Back and I am healthier and stronger than I have been in years!
4. What is something that has surprised you about motherhood?
BEFORE I became a Mom, I had my mind set on how I was going to parent them. AFTER I became a Mom, I learned that being flexible and being able to alter your expectations to your needs and your kids needs is key to making it work.
5. Favorite website(s)?
Well a lot of us have the same website interests…. So, I wanted to share one of my favorite cellphone apps… It’s called BABY PICS. The app lets you edit, add text, doodles and other graphics to your family photos!
6. List three current obsessions.
Fit4Mom - Body Back
7. What is your child's/children's favorite thing about you or favorite thing that you do?
Blake is always down for running errands around town with me. My little shopping buddy. He likes when we practice our dance moves in the living room together
8. Any tips for other moms out there?
I know that minivans aren’t cool but the sliding doors and the trunk space will change your life!
