I have a 4 year old daughter, Sienna, and a 2 year old son, Roman, whom are 20 months apart. Since they’ve come into my life, it’s been quite the journey, full of love, tiring days, laughs, stress, learning and, most of all, motivation.

Before having children, I lived quite the life, filled with travel, fancy dining, fabulous fashion, and exclusive events. Now, as a mom, I make it my business to not entirely stop my life because I’m a parent. So, yes, sometimes that means taking my kids to super fancy restaurants and last minute Miami trips — but, I promise you, I’m still a good, responsible parent! Every word I utter and action I show them is a conscious attempt to make them bright, kind, and strong human beings. I may not always succeed, but I sure try.
