Balanced Mom

Providing Motivational Talks and one on one coaching for Moms. Teaching Moms to create intention and balance in their lives. Live slow. Create Balance. Be Intentional. Currently offering mothering seminars in Fairfax, Herndon, Reston, Ashburn, Leesburg area. I would love the opportunity to come and speak your mom's group. 

As a mother of three, I believe in the importance of balanced living. For the past 15 years I have been speaking to various moms groups on incorporating balanced mothering into their lives. As a mom, I learned that it is ok to ask for help, that I can't do it all, that I will make mistakes, and most importantly to slow down and live with intention. I can't say I learned these lessons the easy way, but then again that is the amazing story of being a mom.
