Hi, I’m Nelly! A Life Balance Mentor for working moms. I’ve spent the last 7 years as an educator and working professional, and I am now a mother of two using my lessons learned to help working moms find joy again amidst the everyday chaos.
I can’t wait to SHARE WHAT i’ve LEARNED.

In 2021, I returned back to work after having my son, my 1st born. I was so pumped to start my journey as a working mom since I was determined to show everyone that I can be both a successful career woman and attentive mother to my child.
My journey started off positive but quickly became one of constant overwhelm, overcommitment and lack of satisfaction being a mom (something that killed me to even say).
To give you more context: my son was coming to work with me for half of the day and then his father would pick him up around 3:00 pm.
I was profoundly grateful for my job’s accommodations but still felt like I had all these high expectations to do my job well while maneuvering my child’s needs, a messy household and good communication with my partner.
I looked happy on the outside, all my dreams (as I thought) were coming true. However, I cried almost every day, my home and workspaces were a mess/cluttered, and I felt like my child was not getting the best mommy version.
It was one spring morning that I woke up with a crying baby, a super-messy living room, a sink full of dishes and this lengthy task list for when I got to work.
In that moment, I dropped everything, put my son down and cried like I never did before. I hated HOW I was living this life. I felt burnt out, exhausted, and alone in my own thoughts.
Something needed to change – I declared it that day! On my own, I began self-development practices / activities and caring for Nelly, FIRST. In particular, I journaled, read and created a vision board.
That led me to having a meaningful conversation with my partner and admitting that I did NOT want to take my son to work after the end of my second maternity leave (by this point I was pregnant with baby #2).
Fast forward to the end of my maternity leave with my second child, we decided to do things differently so that I could find balance on MY TERMS. Afterwards, I kid you not, the smile I put on now is so authentic and real.
I am so HAPPY with the life I am building despite the late nights. I want you to feel that joy too! Don’t give up on it.
So where are you at in your journey?
- Back to work and feel unhappy and/or unmotivated to get up every single day just thinking of everything you need to do.
- Having a hard time managing all your responsibilities while having to still show up and be present for your kids.
- Do you catch yourself constantly talking negatively about your experience as a working mom?
As a Life Balance Mentor, I am on a mission to support and empower working moms with kids who feel burn out and overwhelm entering their lives but want to continue finding joy amidst the chaos of juggling work, home and kids.
You are not alone AND it is possible to find balance, your way!
Because I’ve been in your shoes. I know exactly how it feels to be lost and looking for enjoyment in being a mother while simultaneously building your career.
I have been able to get out of that hole through shifting my focus onto self-love and realistic to-do lists.
My degree in psychology and education, plus the 7+ years as a leader of a nonprofit organization has taught me valuable productivity tips and tricks, along with a deep understanding of human behavior.
