    isn’t a blog about our perfections,
    but a place that is raw and honest.

    Top 10 Things to Know About Me!

    1. I am never bored! There are always a million things I want to do, see, try, make, learn…  No doubt a blog post coming on this soon 🙂
    2. For over 9 years I lived in downtown, Chicago. After having my daughter we decided it was best to move to Michigan where we had the support of family.
    3. I love meeting new people! Please message me if you live in the area or ever are interested in contributing to this community.
    4. Ice cream is the best. Almost any flavor. The best.
    5. Crafting (especially crochet) would occupy my free-time (if I had any).
    6. I could fall asleep anywhere. That includes a Red Hot Chili Pepper concert. Yup, fell asleep right in my seat.
    7. I have been searching for the perfect spaghetti sauce recipe. Help!
    8. I met my husband when I was 18 and we have been together ever since. <3
    9. My faith is a journey, but I try to put it ahead of everything else!
    10. I hope to move back to the city one day when my kid is older. *sigh*
  • About Rachel

    Hi! Like many moms, I juggle being working full time as an E-Commerce Consultant. And, for the record – I am also a “full-time” mom. Mom’s don’t get to be half-time, right? In my limited “free time” I enjoy crafting, cooking, baking and The Bachelor finding fun activities for the family. One of my biggest passions is connecting with others beyond surface level. My hope is that Work It Momma isn’t a blog about our perfections of all that we can do, but a place that is raw and honest – because let’s face it, there are so many challenges only a working mom would understand.

    For most of my adult life, I have defined myself as a career women. My paycheck, place of employment, clients, and title defined my worth and value to the world. It was always a mad dash for the next project or position. Then, on December 17, 2014 my world changed! Alexa Jade was born, and with her came a whole new set of joy and difficulties. So here I am. Sharing those joys, difficulties and the lessons I learn along the way.

    With many of my friends having the privilege (and sacrifice) of being at home with their kids, I went back to work and it was the hardest thing I have ever done. The guilt was consuming. Being one of few women I know going back to the workforce made me feel very isolated and envious. That feeling of being alone in the struggle was what encouraged me to start this blog. If only one other working mom gets encouragement from this then I consider it a success.

    I am so grateful for every person that supports Work It Momma. Thank you for reading, sharing, commenting and being a part of our working mom family.
