The WERKin' Mommas is my contribution to making life easier for busy moms.

I love to speak about careers, accounting, mom life and more. Book me for your next event.

I spend a lot of time on Instagram.

My tweets are random rants about sports and things I think are worthy of RT'ing.

LinkedIn is my go-to platform for professional networking.

I pin accounting stuff but end up scrolling through crockpot meals & tuscan decor.

I'm still getting to know Google+
