Welcome, friend! I’m Amy. A 40-something-year-old mom to 2 amazing kids (one with special needs), wife, working professional, and creator of Mama Takes Charge.
At Mama Takes Charge, I provide practical strategies and tips to empower you take control and create balance in your work life, with your family, and with your money. I constantly felt like I was not at my best and wasting what little time I did have. And being a special needs mom throws an extra twist into it all. The more women I talked to (especially once I became a mom and a working professional), I discovered this was a common struggle.
My mission at Mama Takes Charge is to help working women to find balance to be their best and have more time for the things that matter most – to create a life by design and intention and to stop the guilt of feeling like you are not at your best.
I also write about being a special needs mom and those challenges. I found a lot out there for special needs mom, but not much out there on how to navigate the day-to-day at the same time. And here’s the kicker – my day job is in education. Special Education to be exact. Talk about feeling like you should have all the answers.
What my readers love most about Mama Takes Charge is that there is no pressure to be perfect and acknowledge that we all struggle to keep it all together. But, we can find practical ways to put it all together and quiet the “mom guilt” to live our best lives (and maybe even have a little fun along the way)!
I started this blog because in my family we worked hard, but we deserved better. Our kids deserved better. I started it because I wanted to share what I have learned along the way and what I continue to learn daily from others. I love being able to write about my passion for helping working women create a work-life balance, family life, taking control of your money, and personal improvement and growth.
At Mama Takes Charge you will learn how to take control over your money, enjoy a work-life balance, ideas and tips for your busy family, and most importantly – create more time for this things you love most.
