It’s taken me the better part of 43 years to figure that out…but hey…that’s me…I’m Mandy!
I’m a writer, speaker, and a real live person outside of the internet!
I’m a mom, a bonus mom, a wife, sister, daughter and a riot.
I’m the oldest of six daughters in a complicated blended family, grew up in Northern California but now call Los Angeles home. I’m also mom to six kids ranging from gainfully employed adults (holla!) to an elementary school caboose kid. I’m the one up there on the left. And no. Those aren’t sister wives. They are our daughters. And yes, we’re missing one in the picture because, adult kids, can’t get them all in one spot at the same time!
I have my (overrated and overpriced fancy piece of paper also also known as a…) college degree in Organizational Psychology, have owned a Cold Stone Creamery, co-produced an independent film, and sold everything under the sun. I grew up Mormon and left the church but not the culture. I’ve worn every mask you can think of and finally decided to live my own life, the way I want, as myself. I’m on a mission to build community amongst women and helping every one of us lean into our very own brand of extraordinary!
I love hard.
I play hard.
I work hard…most of the time.
And I love a good adventure!
I’m also about to be your new best friend so grab a cup of whatever floats your boat, dig into the BLOG, find me on INSTAGRAM or hit me up on FACEBOOK.
And girlfriend…lean into your own brand of extraordinary today!
