Hey there! I’m Anjelica, a former Third Culture Kid turned Global Mama.
I educate and inspire a Global Tribe of Mamas, Makers, Wanderlusters, and Worldchangers– aka #AGlobalTribeOfWomen, as they navigate pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood with intention. I’m currently a graduate student at Bastyr University, pursuing my dream of becoming a midwife!
I’m also a writer, speaker, perinatal educator, and doula (trained in reducing maternal and infant mortality).
I’m a lifelong travel lover and my global experiences have particularly shaped my mission to work with women and mothers in a way that is culturally-sensitive, affirms their intuition, and supports their need for community and wellness. I began serving women during the childbearing year back in 2010. I absolutely love coming alongside women as they journey through career, pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
My experiences have also taught me to be compassionate toward those beyond our borders, share with women ways in which they can navigate motherhood with confidence, be more intentional about purchasing mindfully, and commit to making small changes in my life that have the ability to make a large impact on future generations.
Here on my site you’ll find:
The blog Journal, which features profiles of diverse women from around the world, resources for families, and links to conscious brands.
My Services & Workshops here in Seattle.
The Shoppe which offers journals and curated pieces for the modern woman and mother.
Throughout my life I’ve had the great privilege of calling many amazing places like New Orleans, Philadelphia, Japan, Italy, Miami, New York, Puerto Rico, and Guam all home.
I grew up traveling in a military family, later joined the U.S. Coast Guard at the age of 17, and served as a corpsman for 6 years. I now live as a spouse to a military service member.
My husband Brett and I have two Little Women who we hope to nurture a sense of global citizenship within through travel, cultural immersion, and exposure to multicultural experiences on a regular basis.
I thrive on times of bonding with women and have acquired a unique perspective on family, friendship, and life as a whole through the profound relationships I’ve developed during my travels. I’ve learned to value living slow and finding my identity as a woman and mother beyond what’s currently trending, in order to fully thrive and blossom into the being I was created to be. My life has also been significantly impacted by my role as a mentor to pregnant women a part of The Priscilla Project in Buffalo, New York, as well as the overseas births of my two daughters.
My family and I recently moved from Guam to Seattle, and we’re still adjusting to this new life on the mainland. Less sun and sand, more food choices, a myriad of schools to research, major technological advances, and of course cultural differences.
I run on big doses of vitamin SEA, large mugs of green tea latte, and cuddles from my husband and our two girls (aka my Little Women).
I hope you’ll stay a while and join #AGlobalTribeOfWomen. You’ll receive access to exclusive content, discounts, & information about upcoming events.
I truly believe there is a common thread that runs through ALL women and this little piece of real estate is where I hope to tug on that thread and awaken our awareness to one another.
