So here I am, humbled and honored to be in the presence of Katie Porter as one of the Inspiring moms of Orange County. As much as labels don’t define you, if I were to be defined by labels, it would be architecture and motherhood. Being an archimom is a part of my existence. Work hasn’t stopped when I go home to my children, and children don’t stop being a part of my world when I am at work. It’s a tough balancing act, and by prioritizing who needs me the most, and what brings me joy, case by case, I am navigating the murky waters of being a working mom.
