Meet Stephanie!

Hi! I am a Jesus-loving, introverted, somewhat crunchy, and highly practical mom of a 6yo future CEO and a 3yo ninja. I have been married for over a decade to my wonderful husband, Jacob. Creating order out of chaos is my jam and I am passionate about streamlining your mom life!

From Small Business Owner to Raising Small Humans...

Prior to having children, I was the founder, owner, and operator of a successful small business teaching children and adults how to swim. When I was pregnant with my firstborn, I made the decision to become a stay at home mom- and it was quite the transition!  My life became busy in so many different ways than it ever had been before. 

During those early days as a new mom, I felt like my identity had become mostly “Mama.” Having my daughter (and later my son, too) brought me so much joy- but I felt like I lost a piece of myself in the process. The overwhelm was real, the chores seemed endless, and I missed having my own business.

As the days and years went on, I realized that owning a business and managing a home and family actually have a lot in common. As a mom, I was carrying just as many (actually a lot MORE) responsibilities than I did when I owned my own company.  And just like in a small business, there was a need to figure out how to run things more efficiently. 

Instead of allowing myself to be overwhelmed by the day to day tasks, I realized I needed to learn to do my daily mom life more effectively- and I’m now on a mission to figure out ways to do mom life smarter, faster, cheaper, and easier…and of course to share what I find with YOU!

Why I Created The Mama Shark Blog...

Constantly on my mind is how I can get done what I need to get done while saving more time, money, and, most importantly, stress. I am wired to create order out of chaos- and let me tell you, I have plenty of chaos to work with!

Combining that with my passion for entrepreneurship led me to create the Mama Shark blog to share the lessons I have learned as an entrepreneur-turned-mom-turned-entrepreneur-again! Using the skills I acquired from many years in business, I have been able to make my own life simpler- and I’m excited to share my discoveries with you!
