Hey there! I'm Heather and just like you I'm a wife and mom. Actually, I'm a whole lot more than just a wife and a mom. I'm also a blogger, accountant, small business owner. The list goes on.
My mission here at The Balanced Mamas is to provide simple solutions to everyday issues that moms face in order to make their lives easier. Essentially, I've got your back mama!
In 2009 I married my fiance on a whim. Our life was changing drastically during that time period. Then in 2010, I had our first child and our lives from that point on were changed forever.
I never imagined my husband and I would take on so much debt and have so little income to cover it. When we moved I had to quit my job and was unable to find a new one for nearly 4 years. That hurt a lot!
During this time I was suffering through postpartum depression and felt as if my life was disconnected from the world. I didn't know how to relate to other moms and had a feeling that I wasn't the mom that I wanted to be.
At the same time my husband and I were juggling debt and figuring out married life and adult finances. This is where my love of budgeting came into the light. I started researching and consuming everything possible related to saving money, and refining a budget. With a background in banking and finance I can easily say this was a perfect fit for me.
This has been a long journey that has ultimately led me here. I would love for you to take second to read about
the moment motherhood changed me forever, how my husband and I saved money drastically, and
how I am being a more intentional mom.
I want you to know about my story, but this website isn't all about me...
