I am a master at multitasking.”

I enjoy helping companies find their perfect brand positioning or voice. This is very similar to helping my children learn and grow while determining what types of people they will be, helping them find the right road to travel. It's so similar. Multitasking and organization are the core skills to manage the process.

My advice to moms?
You can do this!”

It might be overwhelming and awkward at first. But think back to your kiddos for a moment and when they began to walk. It took a few falls before they were really good at it. Whether you try your hand at freelancing or something else, just stick with it for a while even if it feels tough. Because the rewards are there...one step at a time!

Upwork has been a
literal life-changer.”

I quit my full-time job in January 2020… and launched an agency, and now, two years later, we’re thriving. We have an incredible team including LOTS of moms and equally incredible Upwork clients. I’m happier than I’ve ever been, kicked a nearly four-hour commute, and can finally be present for my family versus coming home during bedtime.

My most useful
mom skill? Patience.”

My four-year-old asks the same question at least 10 times. Some clients are also like that! :) I explain everything to them very clearly and patiently. I can simultaneously work on several projects. When you are a mom, you can do A LOT of things at the same time.

You have more experience than you know.”

Everyone always says to me, "I don't know how you do it!" But if there's one thing moms know how to do, it's make it work! If you can make dinner from whatever you have in the fridge or help your child with a last-minute school project, you have everything you need to succeed on Upwork.

I have the best of both worlds.”

I have so much freedom and flexibility. I am able to choose which clients/projects I get to work on, where I live in the world (I am a digital nomad), with unlimited earning potential, all while doing it from the comfort of my home with my kids nearby.
