Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in town?

I was born in NJ and moved to Cary when I was 15. When I got married, I moved to Raleigh and have been here for 20 years.

 

Children and Ages?

Jackson (16), Savannah (14), Madelyn (11), and Bentley (7)

 

One thing people would be surprised to know about you…

People are often surprised when they find out where I am from. I have totally become a southern girl!

Anyone special you’d like to thank for helping you through parenthood?

Definitely my mom! I am the oldest of 4 so she knows exactly what it is like raising 4 kids. She is also a therapist which has been so helpful as we navigate the teen years. I will often call and say, “ok, I need therapist mom not grandma!”

 

Favorite things to do with your kids?

We love to have family nights at home! We cook our favorite meals, play games, watch movies and have a campfire. It’s the simple things that can make memories that will last a lifetime.

 

Are you involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world?

I am a developmental play therapist who works with children birth-3 years. I also own The Happy Home, a creative/lifestyle blog and online boutique who encourages women to create homes filled with joy!

  

How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?

Community changes everything. Surrounding yourself with women who encourage you, support you and cheer you on is vital! So often I have gone to my circle with issues that were weighing so heavy on me to find out that I wasn’t alone. Just knowing that lifted a weight. Being able to support each other during the hard times and celebrate the successes makes this journey of motherhood seem not so lonely.
