Mother’s Day Spotlight: Moms at Incipio HQ

At Incipio, we’re incredibly lucky to have a team made up of some of our industry’s best, brightest, hardest-working people. So with Mother’s Day coming up, we wanted to give a special shout-out to these same employees who also happen to be moms! Moms who put in their best work during business hours, then go home to their families and continue to give it their all.

In honor of these supermoms, we’re spotlighting a few who we’re lucky to work alongside at Incipio HQ. We asked them some questions about motherhood and we’re sharing their honest, inspiring answers with you. And there’s a little something for you (and Mom), too!

That pregnancy is one of the best things you’ll ever experience. It was very difficult, but definitely worth it.

What is the best part about being a mom?

Just breathe. It seems extremely hard at first but gets easier as time goes on. Take in every moment, good and bad.

What was a mommy myth you were told that turned out to be false?

“You will know what your baby’s cry means.” Nope, not all the time. Thank goodness there are only a few options: eat, sleep, burp, messy diaper. I’m super thankful for my amazing mother.

What is the best part about being a mom?

Seeing the world through your children’s eyes. It is truly inspiring.

What advice would you give expecting mothers?  

Ask for help and find time to sleep.

I have three: “I’ll Stand by You” by The Pretenders, “I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack, and “Humble and Kind” by Tim McGraw.

What is your favorite Incipio product and why? 

The Octane case is my favorite Incipio product for multiple reasons. It is actually an immediate and extended family favorite! I love the color palette, the price and the fact that is it kid-proof.
