Just in time for Mother’s Day, Role Mommy and her good friends, Kim at Mom in the City and Melissa, who writes for NYC Moms Blog as well as iVillage and Time Out NY Kids made an appearance on Better TV offering our favorite gifts and getaway ideas for Mother’s Day. Check us out!
Role Mommy: What did you do before you became a mom?
Judy: I was a modeling agent for Ford and NY Models, a casting director and producer for photo shoots, and before that a model.
Role Mommy: When did you decide to reinvent your life?
Judy: When I got laid off too many times within a short time – I finally decided that I wanted to be in control of my work environment and length of time that I work.
Role Mommy: How have your children influenced your career path? How many do you have?
Judy: I have 5-year old twins (they will be 5 in July) and they have made me realize that I’m not going to be young forever, and doing what I love to do was the only option for me now.
Role Mommy: What’s your favorite “Time Out” tip for moms (taking time for yourself)
Judy: Making a scheduled day and time – even if it’s for one hour – to have time for yourself. For example, at one point I would go get my nails done between 10 and 11:30 on Sunday mornings before my husband went to work…sounds impossible, but once you get in the routine it’s effective!
Role Mommy: What does your website offer moms or kids?
Judy: My website offers education about getting into the modeling industry through my book that came out last fall. Break into Modeling for Under $20 Also, I have a blog that hopefully inspires and motivates people in the modeling/acting industry, but also in their sense of self.
Role Mommy: What do you hope for your own kids?
Judy: To be happy, and to inspire people to be the best they can be by becoming that way themselves.
Role Mommy: Who is your Role Mommy?
Judy: My friend Karen who lives in Florida – she is a single Mom who overcame incredible odds, and I hope to be half the mother that she is every single day.
