I am a woman, a mom, a wife, a business owner, a lawyer, a daughter, a sister, a friend, an active member of my community . . . There are many ways to be a woman.
Why Moxie Chic? The Moxie Chic story begins with my daughter Maya. She inspired me to introduce this brand to all girls and women. My wish for Maya -- and girls of all ages -- is to embrace “moxie” and celebrate being a girl, on her own terms and in her own way.
My son has been an inspiration too. Raising a young boy has made me keenly aware of and concerned with much of the current female empowerment messaging. I want my son -- and ALL boys -- to respect and admire women, without being made to feel defensive, apologetic or angry.
Seeing the world through the eyes of my young children has helped (re)define one of my personal missions which is now Moxie Chic’s mission:
To spread positive female empowerment messaging.
I believe we can and should lift up our girls by being upbeat and optimistic about their future (without alienating or hurting our boys). The more female voices that express moxie, and the more we all embrace the idea that girls expressing moxie are beautiful and “chic,” the better we guarantee that girls will believe in themselves, take advantage of opportunities -- or create their own -- and accomplish the extraordinary.
