Were you born and raised in Boston? If not, what brought you here?

I was raised in Brockton, lived in DC for my early adult life when I started my first company and then moved to Boston 12 years ago.

Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

I saw so many talented and highly educated women in my community who stepped out of their career for a few years to be at home and when they wanted to return to work struggled to know where to begin and how to find access to quality opportunities. I created MomUp to provide that access point to interesting and flexible work. The women in our network bring incredible value to companies and MomUp strives to connect this incredible talent pool with great organizations.

What would your clients say about you and your company?

We are very hands on and involved in the process of matching the right individual with the right position. Companies trust our vetting process and know that we only present the top candidates and our network of moms know how dedicated we are to finding quality, flexible work opportunities. Many women have been overlooked by ATS in job searches and companies are missing out on valuable talent. We are ensuring both groups have the best chance of advancing.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

Stop worrying about public opinion and just go for it.

What is your favorite book?

Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen

What is your secret weapon? An app, a tool, a organization method, anything?! (Can be a personal or professional life tool)

My love of systems whether it’s a calendar, HubSpot, an organized home - I love it all.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Listen to yourself and what you think is the right move. And of course don’t let fear stop you from accomplishing your goals.

How do you enjoy your free time?

Hanging out with my husband, 3 kids and dog - beaching, skiing, traveling.

What is something that not many people know about you?

I am a yoga teacher.
