Less than 1 year.

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

Nope! I just moved here actually. We came for a couple months visit and ended up staying because of the scenery, the people and the amazing energy of this incredible state!

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

When I became a mother, I realized firsthand how little support there is for women in their transition into motherhood. I've been a LCSW for nearly 10 years: a Clinical Director of a Domestic Violence agency, a college professor, sat on Boards in the community and ran groups in a local jail...but NOTHING prepared me for my role as mother and the transition into motherhood. It rocked my world. I have since transitioned my focus in my career to working with women all along their motherhood journey, at the intersection of modern motherhood culture and personal experience. We focus largely on a woman's identity as she becomes ~Mama~ and support her with therapy, coaching, workshops and mama circles. We are working to truly build a modern ~village~ for mamas; one that provides tangible supports and collaborates with other community momprenuers to decrease motherhood burnout and increase joy in motherhood.

What would your clients say about you and your company?

I wish I found Mama's Modern Village sooner in my motherhood journey. I've never felt so heard, seen and ~normal~ in my experience as ~Mama~. Finding your ~village~ in motherhood is necessary because it can feel so lonely. I've found that with Mama's Modern Village. Don't waste any more time thinking if it's worth the investment in yourself, Mama. Do it. You deserve it.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

When you find a job you love doing, you never ~work~ a day in your life. --From my Dad. And no doubt, I found mine.

What is your favorite book?

Nancy Drew + Baby Sitters Club (<--truth!) and also... Hunt, Gather, Parent

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

Automated bill pay!

What is your most recent WIN? How are you slaying it in your career or business?

I have hired a marketing and PR company to help market me and grow my business! I also was considered for Entreprenuer of the Year with iFund Women.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

You'll find it, your calling...just wait. Be patient. BUT LOVE what you do.

How do you enjoy your free time?

With my family, outside and in nature.

What is something that not many people know about you?

My name was Jennifer when I was born. My mom changed my name when I was 9 months old!
