About the Family
We’re all just trying to figure this motherhood thing out!
I am married to the most loving and supportive husband. We met when I was 18 years old and its been love, war and happiness ever since. We have two beautiful children, AJ and Brooke!
AJ was born barreling into this world, my first child at 19. And at the age of 19 years old, he taught me that there is no greater love than the love of a mother and child. I grew up as he grew inside of me. If you ever have a chance to know him personally, then you’ll know that he is the sweetest superhero! My beautiful tutu ballerina warrior princess Brooke is our second child. She is all sass, personality, imagination and love, my little reflection.
Navigating motherhood isn’t always easy but I wouldn’t have it any other way. You’ll learn more about me, my family and parenting style so be sure to subscribe for weekly updates.

Why “She’s A Wreck”?
WRECK= Woman Rebuilding & Embracing Change & Knowledge
So my first thought was… What in the world would my blog be about? I wanted to draw on the experiences I was facing at the moment. I had been working 10 hour days, spending my Friday nights looking for things to do with my two silly kids and husband and taking hundreds of pictures wherever I went.
There were many nights that I just had to hold on to my own internal motivation to keep going, but friends online kept saying how perfect my life seemed. I thought, if only they knew that almost every night I am a complete wreck and slowly just trying to keep my life together. With everything from struggling with mental health, rediscovering myself, parenting, clean eating, working out, attempting to be a great wife, and juggling a career amongst it all, I knew that this was something many women must be feeling and alas “She’s A Wreck” was born.
I wanted to be successful and happy without sacrificing who I was, but in the new digital age, the stereotype to be a self-sacrificing & perfect wife, mom, or simply a woman is constantly put in our face.
After not being able to find mothers who share the nitty gritty realness of motherhood, mental health and how it affects motherhood, the benefits of self-love, care and imperfections I created “She’s A Wreck” to fill that gap and hopefully reach an audience that’s just like me.
Dismantling the Super Mom Stereotype
Super Mom looks really different to each and every one of us! Far too often lots of moms always think they need to do it all and think that motherhood without perfection cannot exist.
Motherhood isn’t just what you see online as a collection of Instagram posts, Facebook videos or Snapchats of the perfect days and perfect moments. Appearances make it seem like I have it together and trust me I don’t! I’m a wreck most days and there have been many nights my kids ate Cheerios for dinner but we’re happy and we make the best of it all.
I hope to make you laugh, inspire you and bring you easy-going tips and experiences.
