I’m Rashida. 

 

A motherless mom of two on a mission to build a community that provides support for moms like me. Moms who are navigating both motherhood and grief. 

 

I'm channeling my mom's whit and sass to bring you the real motherhood and grief moments that make up the fabric of my life. My crew consists of my husband of 6 years, Ben, and our two littles Dom (3.5) and P (1), and our rescue pup Kona (7). 

Fast Facts.

  • I'm a born, raised, and proud St. Louisan

  • I'm a seasoned marketing pro and agency kid with a decade of experience currently working as a Lead Strategist at a small shop in STL. 

  • I earned my Bachelor's of Journalism in Strategic Communication at the University of Missouri (MIZ!)

  • I met my hubs on match.com before Tinder and Bumble were things. 

  • I found out I was pregnant with Dom three weeks before Ben and I's trip of a lifetime to Spain. 

  • Having lost my mom when I was 15, I'm a huge advocate for mental health awareness and reform - more specifically maternal mental health. 

  • My self-care bag of tricks consists of, mani/pedis, long walks while listening to an audiobook, snuggling my pup,  watching ANY show Bravo airs, and experimenting with new cocktail recipes (you can follow those experiments at Mommy Mixologists).

  • I'm a former half-marathon runner who recently fell deeply in love with Peloton.
