What does the ideal Mother’s Day look like to you?

A meal with my family, maybe a visit with my own mom, and a relaxing massage!

Where do you draw your inspiration from?

My inspiration comes from the past (my dad’s life story, the ideas my mom shared with me about naturally managing my health), my friends who keep me laughing, the ocean (when I can put myself in front of it), the arts (writing, dance, and theater) and of course, my kids!

What’s something you love to do with your kids?

My son Micah is 6 and my daughter Zarah is 2. I love a good dance party with my kids but my most favorite are our times in our family garden over the summer. It’s truly our happy place.

Why did you start Beyond Mom?

I recognized that a new SELF is born with baby and no one seems to be prepared for that fact. I wanted to create a space for women to embrace the potent and powerful time of motherhood and use it to harness the power of that new identity.

As time has gone on and I’ve been touring my recently published book Going Beyond Mom: How to Activate Your Mind, Body and Business After Baby. I’ve really had my ear to the ground and realized how little our culture encourages women to put themselves first. So even though women are told that they can “have it all,” they are crippled and exhausted by pressure, worn out, and feel a sense of guilt and failure, even if that's not true at all.

Beyond Mom has evolved as a movement to change that mindset and to empower women toward self-love and care as a pathway toward productivity and fulfillment. Now that kind of mindset change is a game changer!

When I get a little time to myself, you can usually find me...?

Reading, Cooking or working out!

What are 3 things you always have in your handbag?

My phone (hello). My business cards (I meet people in the most random places!). A good lip-gloss to keep me looking fresh (my favorite is Sam and Maddy makeup created by my friend Jen Bobker!)

What your favorite Mia Tango item right now? Why?
