Who are you a mom to?
HIllan and Windsor Kate. Hillan turned 2 in April and is the sweetest little boy (when he wants to be) and is obsessed with all things trucks. Windsor Kate was born June 21 and is the sweetest baby!
What were you like in high school?
Hmmm I was very social :) I loved going to all of the sporting events and participating in class events.
Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck or one hundred duck-sized horses?
Both sound terrifying but I guess I’d choose one horse-sized duck. I have a feeling HIllan could help distract it with all of the goldfish he drops.
What gets you out of bed every day?
I have a toddler and a newborn. I’m lucky if I make it in the bed ha!
Who in your life is your biggest fitness or just basic life inspiration?
I wouldn’t say I have a fitness inspiration but life inspiration would be my Grandma, who passed 2 years ago. I’ve always looked up to her for many reasons. She was so selfless and always put God first and loved her wine.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
My Grandma always told me to have a bottle of champagne in your fridge because you never know when you will need to celebrate.
How do you stay fit when you’re not working out with FIT4MOM?
I love going on walks around the neighborhood. Even though half of them end up at Stella’s buying some sort of sweet treat.
How do you practice self-care?
Stroller Strides really has been my “me” time. I also try and nap when the kids are sleeping if it was a long night.
Where did you grow up and how did you end up in Richmond?
I was born and raised in Richmond but moved to North Carolina for college. After spending 12 years there, my husband took a job in Richmond and we moved back 2 years ago.
What is something you’ve done that you're really proud of?
Being a mom has definitely been my biggest accomplishment.
How did becoming a mother change you?
It gave me a whole new outlook on life and what’s truly important.
You’re a new mother of two: What is your favorite thing so far about having two kids and what has been the hardest thing?
My favorite thing is seeing Hillan around Windsor Kate and how proud he is of her. Also, seeing my husband with a daughter. It melts my heart. Oh, and ALL the bows!
The first 2 weeks were definitely an adjustment for all of us. The lack of sleep combined with a toddler that’s ready to go at 6am can make for a long day.
Which celebrity, dead or alive, would you love to have coffee with?
Oprah. Maybe she’d give me a free car?
What is the last great book or television series you’ve read/watched?
This is Us and anything on Bravo.
