Meet Julie! - Westport Moms
How old are your kids and how long have you lived in Weston? My kids are 13, 11, and 8 (yikes!), and we have lived in Weston for 12 years!
What is your favorite family activity to do in Westport or the surrounding towns? We love to take family hikes in Weston’s Devil’s Den on a weekend morning. The kids always complain about going and then they always have the best time.
What was your most memorable family vacation and why? Portugal and Spain – Summer 2018. We convinced the kids to bag sleep-away camp and we took an epic 20 day European adventure as a family. We needed it. I truly disconnected from work which is rare, and reconnected with my husband!
What’s your can’t live without beauty product? Frankincense essential Oil by DoTerra. I put a drop in my facial moisturizer and a drop on my tongue daily.
What are you most excited about in life right now? Other than holding on to these days with my kids like sand through an hourglass, I am most excited about Namaste New York, my fitness and wellness business. We are launching so many new and fabulous offerings in 2019 I feel newly inspired by this business I have had for almost 17 years.
If you weren’t doing what you are today, what do you think your career path might have been? I would have been a psychotherapist.
If you had 24 hours to do whatever you wanted – what would you do? Practice yoga + meditate in my home with a Namaste teacher, early-ish. Take a family hike including my amazing parents, go to lunch with my bff, wine and dinner with my husband and no alarm clock! Namaste Thai Bodywork Session in the morning….
What is your greatest regret? It’s not my greatest regret per se, but not traveling alone with my husband when my children were babies is a regret!
What is one piece of advice you would pass along to other moms? Most things don’t matter except The Golden Rule and boundaries with screen time.
How did you end up where you are now in terms of your job, or whatever passion project it is you might be doing? My husband and I felt inspired to start Namaste, our wellness business, before ‘wellness’ or on-demand, in-home service was a thing. It was 9/11 that was a pivotal point in putting us on this path. Many New Yorkers needed support and a resource for self care. Since then we have been building an army of teachers and trainers and healers and an extraordinary clientele. Our loyal customers believe that Namaste’s in-home fitness and wellness is the secret to sanity and success.
