Gems
stories of inspiring women that I look up to for you to get inspired by too. this is a space for women to uplift and empower one another.

Latham Thomas

The joy of childbirth is one of life’s most profound experiences, and few people understand this and share this as beautifully as Latham, who’s a doula. Her website Mama Glow describes her as a “maternity lifestyle maven,” but she’s so much more than that (just ask Oprah, who named her to her Super Soul 100 list). I turn to her site for grounded advice on all things motherhood.

 

 

Genevieve Padalecki

Gen and I have become good friends since I’ve moved to Austin. She’s a mother of three young children, yet finds time to inspire and share with other women through her incredible blog Now & Gen. I love that Gen is down-to-earth about the joys and challenges of being a working mom, and isn’t afraid to get completely real/honest. Plus, I love her personal style.

 

 

Nazanin Mandi

I admire how Nazanin is a multi-talented model, actress and singer who’s made a name for herself despite her very famous husband (she and Miguel got married last year). For a young woman, she’s already accomplished so much—and I look to her to see what Millennials are thinking, feeling and sharing because she’s wise beyond her years.
