Join Hip NJ and New Jersey Family at Bloomingdale’s in Short Hills for this second annual event.
As busy moms juggling the kids and their schedules with work and everything in between, we are all about our village of mama friends who support us, inspire us and keep us sane. That’s why we’re so excited to be a part of an amazing event showcasing some of NJ’s leading power moms talking modern motherhood. On May 9, just in time for Mother’s Day, join us and Hip NJ for the second annual In Her Shoes: #MomBoss Panel Discussion at Bloomingdale’s at the Short Hills Mall.
The event is happening from 10– 11:30 a.m. at Bloomingdale’s (shoes on 2). You’ll hear from three successful mompreneurs about their work, their families and their best advice.
Liz Tenety is co-founder of Motherly, a lifestyle parenting brand redefining motherhood. The site provides its 30M+ community of mamas with encouragement, support and inspiration to embrace motherhood while also not losing their true sense of self. A mother of three from Summit, Tenety is also a co-author of the recently-published book, This Is Motherhood: A Motherly Collection of Reflections + Practices. She and her husband are expecting their fourth child this year.
