Outside of my pregnancy years, when my workout schedule was sadly sporadic, I have been pretty consistent in staying active. I was a casual jogger in my college years, took Tae Kwon Do classes and mixed in aerobics whenever possible. Like everyone else, I eventually joined a gym and worked out as regularly as I could.

As a mom of three girls, my hope is for my daughters to grow up to be kind, respectful and compassionate young women.

And that’s why I’m so excited to be collaborating with Cinder + Salt to introduce you to their newest collection, which embodies this go-getter attitude. Their #LIKEABOSS collection was inspired by all the female go-getters out there who are empowered to pursue excellence while at the same time striving to find balance between career and personal goals.
