Welcome to Mama in Heels! My name is Janise, a happy fulfilled mom of two handsome twin boys. After a failed marriage and a recession that wiped me clean, in my darkest moment I was given a second chance.
During these challenging times, I unexpectedly met my now loving, supportive…. and Italian 😉 husband, and father of my Chitalian twin boys. And together, we re-built our blissful lives. I believe we all get second chances.
As a woman, a wife, and a mom, I always make the effort to look fabulous because it feels good. I have always loved fashion and bargain shopping. With a family of four, my love for cooking has served me well. My Chinese heritage has given me an unexpected edge on eating healthy (minus the sodium intake).
I’ve been a dedicated Yogi for years. After having twin boys, yoga has helped me fight off my Mommy Tummy (well most of it). I am known as the handy woman around the house. I think my love of working with tools inherently stems from my love of interior decorating and real estate.
I put a lot on the line to start a company (later bought out by a corporation) years ago. This risk taking behavior has now allowed me to work remotely from home. With two rambunctious, mischievous boys running around the house, I couldn’t have asked for more.
Many of my friends and family have asked me how I’m able to stay fashionable and healthy as a mom while raising our twin boys and keeping our household finances in order all on our own. Well, grab a coffee….we have lots to talk about 🙂
