My mission in life is to ignite a fire in you. To tell you that life is not a dress rehearsal, and to make each day count.
Life is precious, and my conviction comes from once losing 7 loved ones in 2017. The impact of losing my Father and Father in law within months apart was unbearable. Both of them had very full lives with being the father of 7 children and each having 15 grandkids each (uncanny, I know). However, in losing my nanny Morena unexpectedly (at age 46 years old) it impacted me so much that I started a community of moms, called Avenue Mama. What started out was a place for me to talk about the unglamorous side of motherhood turned into a community which I eventually started teaching other moms how to start their own business.
I had lived so much of my life because my parents sacrificed so much -- as we were a refugee family. Naturally out of obligation and guilt, I pursued a degree in healthcare. But, once I became a mom to a baby boy with a health concern, I knew that I couldn't away from him and so I needed to find a way to still make money.
If you choose me as a photographer, I promise to provide an easy breezy and fun experience. And if you choose me as a business coach or consultant, I promise you I won't let you dream small, we will create space for you to dream big.
My kids are now 7 and 5, and I truly believe that actions speak louder than words, so if I tell them that they can pursue what is in the hearts, then I get to be that living example for them.
Thanks for being here!
