By day, I am a vice president of technology at a Wall Street brokerage. By night, I am a freelance writer and founder of “In Our Shoes”, a project in celebration and support of women.
Similar to the IMOW, mine is a community that embodies the conversations between women, often unspoken due to the busy lifestyles we sustain.
When stumbling upon your web site, I sat back with admiration as I read of what your organization is doing for women across the globe. My project parallels the same momentum for change amongst women who are caught up in doing it all, rather than being in their own lives.
I have also done professional speaking and am a member of the International Women’s Writing Guild.

Inspired by the notion that every life is a story worth sharing, last year I began In Our Shoes, a platform founded on the kinship between women, which radiates in the form of story telling.
Today's women are treading new ground, swapping in and out of more shoes, than our mothers and grandmothers before us, ever have. We balance being parents, career women, partners, daughters, sisters, friends for the long-haul and if we dare to dream, our personal life ambitions–all while keeping a pulse on our mental and physical well being.
While keeping apace with life's hustle and bustle, women often accept that the conversations we used to have with one another only naturally fade out. Reaching out to the wide network of women I've grown over the years, whether they're stay at home moms or working city slickers, American or European, young or old, we all share a common thread - the need to swap stories and support one another by voicing the unspoken truths and personal experiences which validate where we stand in the world.
I'm passionate about:
Working mothers and how they are able to balance quality vs. quantity time with their children
Red flags signaling the need for more communication in our relationships due to our busy lifestyles
Finding happiness beyond the working paycheck.
Embracing fashion and beauty as means to celebrating our authenticity.
Recognizing our power to persevere and succeed at anything we set our hearts to.
