Growing up in San Diego, I was raised in a family of athletes. My dad had a stint in the NFL, my brothers played in the NFL and MLB, and my mom is an avid golfer. Me, I grew up playing competitive soccer. I love the teamwork, leadership, and competition of sports; it’s in my blood. In college, it was my dream to become a TV anchor but there was something about having to leave San Diego and relocate to a very small town that was not so intriguing. I majored in Communications at USC and was introduced to an opportunity to minor in Sports Journalism. Post-college, I dove into the media industry and ultimately ended up working with the NFL and MLB among other media outlets.
Twenty-one years into a successful career, things changed. In what seemed just a blink of an eye, my sons were six and eight and I realized how much of their lives I had missed. So, seven years ago, I took almost a year to evaluate my life and focus on my “little athletes.” That time confirmed what I had suspected; I needed them just as much as they needed me. Knowing that my family needed my income but also that I couldn’t go back to a corporate job, I strived to find something that would allow me to balance my personal and professional lives.
Shortly after beginning my search, I had coffee with a long-time family friend, Heidi Bartolotta, who introduced me to Moms Making Six Figures. That was almost five years ago, and since then I have been able to design my new career around my sons’ very busy school and sports schedules. From picking them up from school every day and shuttling them off to practices and then back home, I have truly been able to be there for them. This is so important because soon I will blink again – and they will be off to college.
