Megan: Before I became a mom I got a full night’s sleep, never left the house without makeup and was SANE. In my professional life before kids, I had over 15 years as a public relations executive and sales professional.
Role Mommy: When did you decide to reinvent your life?
Megan: I don’t think there was a certain moment, but as a full time stay-at-home mom I know I wanted to do something else once my oldest began preschool.
Role Mommy: How have your children influenced your career path? How many do you have?
Megan: I have two children – a 3.5 year old boy and a 19 month old girl. My children have inspired and influenced the direction of my life from the moment they were born. They completely changed my perspective on life and challenged me to be my best.
My children were my inspiration for writing my first children’s book called Oscar the Pig: Mommy Goes to Work ( Once my son experienced separation anxiety for the first time, I knew I wanted to help other moms out there. Separation anxiety is something every mother can relate to whether they are going back to work, dropping their children off at daycare or just trying to get a work-out in.
And, as a mother, I wanted to connect with other moms to share advice, tips and struggles so I launched a social networking site for moms. In just two months it has exploded with thousands of moms joining!
Role Mommy: What’s your favorite “Time Out” tip for moms (taking time for yourself)
Megan: Make sure you get a few minutes a day to do something you enjoy whether it’s reading a few pages of a book, watching Oprah or talking a bath. It will make you a better mom!
Role Mommy: What does your website offer moms or kids?
Megan: offers moms a fun and supportive place to connect with each other on a variety of topics including business, parenting or special interests. TwitterMoms has over 150 interest groups – there’s one for moms who love wine, fitness, green-living, blogging, moms of twins, teenagers, the list continues.
Role Mommy: What do you hope for your own kids?
Megan: My hope for my children is they grow up to be happy, positive and contributing members of society. And, always remember to be grateful for whatever life hands them.
Role Mommy: Who is your Role Mommy?
Megan: My role Mommy’s are all the moms on I have met and made friends with some extremely smart, fun and supportive women! They inspire me everyday and I am so grateful to all of them!
