Tell us about your Family: My husband Alex and I have been married for 3 years, and Sophia, who is 6 months old, completes our little family

What are your current challenges as a mom? I have just gone back to work, so I am trying to find our new balance as a family; caring for her needs, being present when I am with her and not forgetting about Alex or other responsibilities

What is your favorite part of motherhood? When she smiles at me… there’s probably no more honest smile than the one of a baby to her mom

What’s one piece of advice you would give to a first time mom? Well, I am too much of a newbie to even adventure in giving any advice, but what I keep reminding myself of is to do what feels right for my baby. There are so many theories about parenting, products with mix reviews, sleep-training methods, you name it… in the end, I try to apply love and pragmatism to everything I do for her

What do you like about Stroller Strides? It is a true community where to meet moms that share similar concerns and moments of happiness with their little ones, while getting a so needed work out!; Having grown up outside the USA, stroller strides has also taught me a few American children songs, like the “old Macdonald had a farm”… imagine my surprise the first time you guys sang it! Thank you!

What is your favorite exercise? Anything that engages our core. I am bad at it, so I like the challenge

Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us or makes you unique? I can’t bend, I am terribly inflexible…!
