Hi Mommas! My name is Miriam. I’m so grateful and humbled for the opportunity to join Miami Mom Collective as a contributor and Events Team member. I love attending the Moms’ Night Out and the MOM STRONG events. I always come out of them inspired. The MMC events add to my already authentic energy to empower more women and mommas. This is why I didn’t think twice about applying to join MMC. 


I was born and raised in Hialeah but my stomping grounds were Miami and Miami Lakes. I was raised by only my mom who had 3 jobs to give me and my brother some sort of a normal life. Growing up I don’t recall there being resources available for moms like Miami Mom Collective. However, I’m sure she would have benefited from it a whole lot. 

Miami is a culture with other cultures in itself. There’s an array of different types of cuisines and let’s not forget that Miami is the staple for the best croquetas. We really do live where others vacation. You can find a different farmer’s market to visit almost every weekend or maybe a festival. There’s no city out there that has a mix of beautiful beaches, continued success in the restaurant industry, a diverse art community, and a melting pot of cultures. 


We are a family of 5 and growing–my husband Freddy of 17 years, my two stepdaughters (they’re my daughters), Taylor (26) and Andrea (23), and my son Liam (15). Combined we are a family full of personality, lovers of good food, travel, sneakerheads, football, basketball, and music to name some. And like every Hispanic family out there, we love Noche Buena.

Motherhood has shown me and continues to show me love. When I first met my stepdaughters. I knew that I had to be the best of me for them. They taught me so much and I want to say they have a lot to do with the mother that I am to my son. 

Motherhood does not come with a playbook but it sure is rewarding despite the challenges. Some of the challenges that we face as mothers are the different stages in our kids’ lives that we are not prepared for. We don’t have all the answers and as mothers, we depend a lot on our instincts and our support system. This is why I’m committed to sharing resources with you and invite you to do this together.   


When I’m not mothering or attending to my family, consulting, or creating workspaces for women-owned small businesses, you can find me attending MMC events. My vibe has always led me to empower women and MMC gives me all the inspiration to continue in doing so. Let’s do this together!
