"Mom wife CEO and founder of Dana’s Bakery."
Balance is key. How do you stay organized between family & work?
"I get asked this question a lot and after many many years of trying to balance I have come to the realization that balance does not exist! In regards to this topic balance should just be self understanding and forgiveness because you never know what life is going to bring. Each day is different and demands different things. Some days I’m on point when it comes to my kids the next day I’m totally consumed by work other days it’s a mix of both and everything in between. I think we are all just doing the best that we can and as long as we are doing that we are doing a pretty damn good job."
Name another mom who inspires you? Why?
"All moms inspire me, bring a MOM is one of the hardest and most rewarding jobs there can be. I I rely on my friends when I need them and it goes both ways it’s so important to have that support system. Now that I have two girls of my own I think about my mother often and everything just makes so much more sense now! I have so much more understanding and respect for all that she did for us and all that she continues to do. It’s a deeper level of understanding and appreciation that I don’t think I could ever have if I wasn’t now a mother myself!"
Some days are tough, what's a quote that keeps you going?
"Not necessarily a quote, but “Give zero fucks” has always been one of my favorites mottos. It fuels me to get after it."
#ChangeMakerMoms make #FutureBoss kids - how does your child inspire you?
"After having my girls, I take much better care of myself. I can only be good for them if I am in a good place and I want to be around as long as I possibly can to experience life together."
What's your pump-up song for starting your day?
"Used to be anything in the heavy metal / rock a d roll genre. These days it’s KidzBop or we don’t talk about Bruno (Encanto)."
