Who are you a mom to?

Mom to Tony and Amir Pace.

How long have you been doing FIT4MOM and how did you find us?

I started Fit4mom in June 2018. I found Fit 4 Mom on Google and it took me five years to join because I was intimidated and a bit shy.

Why did you join?

I joined Fit4mom because I wanted to make a lifestyle change. I wanted to be physically and mentally active for my family and myself.

What is your favorite thing about FIT4MOM?

My favorite thing about Fit4mom is having something to look forward to every day. Like talking and working out with other moms.

How did you meet your partner?

My husband and I are a Love Story! We met in 2010 when his mother was diagnosed with severe onset Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. His mother and I became best friends as soon as we met, we were inseparable, she was admitted as a patient at the Senior Living I worked at as a director. As time went on Anthony, expressed interest in me like a total gentleman. We went on our first date in November 2010.

Anthony proposed a year later in New York City and we married 6 months after that. We said “Our Forever’s” on a beautiful day in Spring in Santa Barbara Ca.

We had our first son Anthony Michael Pace IV in the year of 2013 and our second son Amir Mason Pace in the year of 2016. We always joke on how his mother stole my heart first!

Tell us about your career either now or before baby?

I have been blessed to have the opportunity to be a stay at home mom for both my children. It is one of the most rewarding and challenging jobs any mother could do!

What is your favorite family activity?

Family Mass on Sundays and Family Day Workouts at the Park!

How has motherhood changed you?

Motherhood has taught me one of Life’s big lessons… That is to LIVE LIFE SIMPLY.

What's your best mom advice?

My best mom advice is to go out there and make mom friends who relate to you.

Make yourself a part of the tribe! Be consistent and show up.

Love, laugh, live, be non-judgmental, lend a helping hand, be kind and most importantly be you.
