REAL MOMS. REAL TALK. Kate Anderson, Director of Operations for iFundWomen, and badass Mom of two

I first connected with Kate through Dreamers//Doers, a group that aims to connect ambitious and entrepreneurial women so they can help each other. I immediately loved Kate, as she embodies fem-power in the all the best possible ways. She is Director of Operations for iFundWomen, a crowdfunding platform for women-led startups and small businesses. She is also the mother of two, and a paradigm of determination and discipline. She even had her two babies without any pain medication! I mean, I'm impressed. Hear Kate talk about how she went through labor sans drugs, her transition to working at home, and...

REAL MOMS. REAL TALK. Laura Creighton, a Director at CBS, reflects on the first year of motherhood and the huge life transitions.

Laura is beautiful, smart, and a badass! I met Laura my freshman year at Northwestern, and we have been close friends ever since. She had a beautiful baby boy, Otis, about a year ago, and I was dying to get her to share her experiences with me for this blog. She has an amazing talent for capturing the emotional complexities of a situation.

I recently met Veronica for a coffee to talk about starting a business and to share tips, tricks, and insights. Veronica is a former consultant who is now launching a line of nursing apparel, and it is so inspiring to hear how she has redirected her energy and her career post-motherhood.

REAL MOMS. REAL TALK. Meredith Dieterle, Brooklyn Mom and Product Development Manger for Beauty and Fragrance.

I met Meredith only a few weeks ago, and I knew instantly that I liked her a lot! You know when you feel instantly comfortable with someone because they're so warm and genuine? That's exactly how I felt with Meredith, and I'm guessing that's how most people feel when they meet her. Meredith is a charming combination of Southern kindness mixed with East Coast sophistication. We became fast friends over a drink and a chat, and I knew she had to be the next subject of our blog series. Meredith discusses her crazy blizzard birthing experience, who helped her through those...

Meet Suzanne, our new Retail Sales Consultant! I am THRILLED to welcome Suzanne to the BROOKLYN BORN team, she is absolutely amazing.
