Marmee Tribe – Amanda Rowoldt of Mommy Works

The Tribe

I’m all for moms supporting moms and discovered this business through another mom, of course! It was only natural for me to introduce myself to Amanda, owner and operator of Mommy Works, a co-working office space.

The first time I met Jeffri was at a Fashion Group International meeting.

Marmee – Just the beginning


The holidays are coming and I am anxious to get the ball rolling on my first pop-up. One thing is stopping me…. Okay, maybe two things! The first thing is time. The second thing is self doubt.

Garlic Chicken & Cauliflower Cheese Toast


Before child, one of my favorite things to do was cook dinner. I used to start prepping at 3pm! My  masterpiece would be ready to eat by the time the husband arrived home from work. Now, the very thought of adding cooking to my daily list of “To do’s” makes me cringe. This meal however took …
