Motherhood is hard. Motherhood is magic. But it is always worth it. So here’s to you, Mama Bear With The F*cked Up Hair. You are the glue that holds your family together. You are the engine that keeps your household running. You are seen.
My latest picture book was made just for you – because even on your toughest days, you are everything your family needs. Coming September 20, 2022.
AUTHOR & SPEAKER
For 25 years, I worked in Corporate America in various roles for a Fortune 500 company. On the surface, I appeared confident and put together, but I was completely overwhelmed. I felt like I was failing in every aspect of my life.
In 2020, I was furloughed from my job and it was then that my world began to change. I’d always had a dream of writing children’s books. For the first time ever, I allowed myself to explore that dream.
Today, I’m living life by my own design, working as a motivational speaker, author & coach, spending more time with my children and enjoying every moment.
My Other Books
Tilly Toad’s Heavy Load
This motivational children’s book helps children (and their adults) learn to let go of their heavy thoughts and feelings.
We All Like Different Things
Written with my son, this inspirational children’s book helps us learn that we can all like different things and still get along!
I love how this book is not only for kids but for us adults as well!
You will learn how to put down the heavy stuff that is weighing you down, so you can find the space to pick up the things that make you come alive! What a lesson to learn in your youth. Yet, it’s never too late even for us adults. A beautifully written and boldly illustrated read.
– Review of Tilly Toad’s Heavy Load
Need an inspirational speaker for moms?
I am passionate about sharing the reality of motherhood. The good parts, of course, but also the hard moments. The times when you feel like you might actually pull your hair out.
As a mom of four boys, I’ve seen a lot of ups and downs on my parenting journey. I spent 25 years in Corporate America before taking the leap and following my dream of becoming an author.
Today, I love to help other moms realize their own dreams and live life on their terms. Through my books, I also love to help kids and their grown-ups manage anxiety, fear, and other big feelings.

You’re not alone.
Motherhood can feel really lonely. Social media is full of moms and families who appear as though they are happy and beautiful all the time. But that’s not real life. If you’re tired of picture-perfect families and unrealistic expectations of motherhood, listen to the Dear Mama Bear podcast, where we’re not afraid to get real (and drop some F-bombs).
