Life & Career Milestones

My path in life took a while to figure out

  • 1.

    When I was 15, one of my first jobs was designing t-shirts. In college, I majored in theatre, comedy, and playwriting.

  • 2.

    When I left college, I went into fashion design and apparel production and I had a great career there.

  • 3.

    I got married, walked away from my career, and had a family. I was a stay at home mom for 8-9 years. On the side, I did consulting work in the apparel industry.

  • 4.

    During that time, I started a blog called the Glamorous Life Association. Unlike the other mom blogs, mine was a humorous and sarcastic take on it.

  • 5.

    A very large agency took notice of me and my writing skills, so they hired me. I shifted from being a blogging mom to being an agency person.

  • 6.

    I began working for large agencies, even commuting to New York from California. I couldn’t do that without my husband's support and my kids being okay with it.

  • 7.

    Eventually, I decided to start my own agency, MM+CO.

Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Society in general:

    You have to pick something. You need to learn to speciailize, there's no need for generalists.

  • How I responded:

    I had a strange confidence and belief in myself that I was different and I embraced that. I knew I could do many different things. If you’re a generalist, you’re more valuable to organizations on multiple levels.

  • The time that I took to be a stay at home mom with my kids, I didn’t plan on working again, so at the time, I didn't care. But I feel it every day that I might be further along in my world domination plan had I not done that.
