Shame on mom-shamers. Experienced their wrath? Share your story.

While at the park with my twins, I was mom shamed by a “working mom” for being a “stay at home mom”.

If any line of work needs inspo, it's motherhood. What type of mothers inspire you.

I’m inspired by strong, forward thinking moms. Moms who lead by example of what fits best for their individual families. Moms who aren’t afraid to carve out their own path of motherhood.

Sometimes we're all BAD MUTHAs (as we should be). When did you go against traditional advice?

I struggled with infertility for years, finally I ignored all the traditional advice. Instead I placed my trust into science and IVF, which resulted into my miracle twins!

"We should show our vulnerabilities, our imperfect mom moments, our tough days and lean on each other for genuine support."

Better worlds start with better moms. How can the motherhood community improve?

I think as a motherhood community we desperately need more transparency. We need to drop the perfect mom act that social media conditions us to display. Rather we should show our vulnerabilities, our imperfect mom moments, our tough days and lean on each other for genuine support.

How do you like to MUTHA yourself and ensure you still have some 'me' time?

I sneak away to my favorite Korean Spa in downtown LA. If that’s not doable I use the calm app, I find just 10 minutes of mediation can perform miracles in motherhood.
