On the Miracle Link Jewelry collection
“The pendants are beautiful and they’re meaningful, which I think to a Mom is the most upmost importance. For me honestly, I can’t really describe what being a mom is. I’ve always wanted to become one and now that I am, it’s a lot more work than i anticipated, but a lot more joy. It has changed my life for the better and made me kind of take a step back to be more patient and accepting. I think to be more present to enjoy the journey. The [Collection} in all of that it represent, it symbolizing that enduring internal love that a Mom has for her child. In a way it hits home for me, so it’s nice to be talking about it and representing it."
Have you used that olympic world class training into being a Mother?
"A little bit, especially I think the skills i learned through athletics. My children are so young and i hope that they get more into being organized and having time management skills. i hope they will learn about perseverance, dedication and discipline. Right now they’re interested in having good time. As a mother learning that there are things you can and can not control. As an athletic you set a goal and then you go to the back and take the appropriate steps to get there.Whereas this is their life, not mine and I have to allow them to do what they need to do and they need to grown on their own. It’s been a learning process for me too and I have to continually check in with myself and learn from our mistakes."
