MomWarrior™ Coming to Los Angeles
A Mother Will Always Be A Warrior
The MomWarrior™ event which had its inaugural conference in the Bay Area earlier this year, is coming to Los Angeles on Friday, Sept. 15 with a series of speakers, workshops and panels designed to help local moms create a plan through the ever-persistent battle of motherhood versus self-identity.
Mommy In Los Angeles® is an official partner of the MomWarrior™ event, where topics such as The Balance of Motherhood, Raising Socially Aware Kids and Moms and The Identity Crisis will be discussed in a comfortable setting at the Annenberg Beach House in Santa Monica. Tickets for the day-long event are now on sale through Eventbrite for $75 per person.
The MomWarrior™ Event series was created by Tet Salva, a Bay Area mother of four girls who, amid diaper changes, dinner meals and school drop-offs, started questioning whether her dynamic pre-motherhood personality had been lost.
“We are so much more, especially after we become moms. I still consider myself ambitious, driven, and independent. It’s just now, there’s a twist,” she told Mommy In Los Angeles® back in July.
Salva proved that motherhood doesn't have to end a woman's individual aspirations to create something with a positive impact. She came up with the MomWarrior™ concept and hosted the first event in San Ramon, CA earlier this year. The seminar helped moms navigate through the intricate web of balancing personal, career & business goals and motherhood. Attendees left the event so inspired that several moms asked Salva to hold a similar event at their workplace.
On Friday, September 15, Los Angeles moms can expect a similar experience.
