We’re proud to say that Parker is a female founded and run company. As a close knit team of women and mothers, motherhood is very close to our hearts here. Here’s what motherhood means to us:
“I’m in awe of motherhood, and all of the different iterations of it that exist. It has made me a better person. I might not always do things right, but I’ve learned that a mother’s love is a superpower.”
-Lindsay Nead, Founder + CEO
“I am so inspired watching all of our working Parker mommas do it all and with such balance, grace, and dedication. Being able to work full time and be passionate about a career path they love + take care of their babies at home is a true testament to how incredible women in this industry are.”
-Sydney Shockloss, Talent + Recruitment Manager
“I’m inspired by how much motherhood has already changed me – it gives everything I do a greater purpose. I honestly love every part of it, but some of my favorite moments are the simple ones… like rocking my baby to sleep in the middle of the night, there’s no better feeling! “
-Janie Alessi, Director of Brand
“The most inspiring thing about motherhood to me is the amount of selflessness that goes into being a mother. Whether it is my own mom that has made sacrifices where she put me first or the moms that I am surrounded by, moms show up day in and day out and it is truly the most remarkable quality.”
-Ally Billings, Talent Coordinator
“One of my favorite parts of motherhood is watching my kids gain confidence as they learn and grow. Seeing them beam ear to ear when they discover they can do something for the first time is everything. From their first steps, to doing the monkey bars at the park, seeing their success and joy makes my heart explode!”
-Stephanie Field, Director of Talent
“I’m inspired by how selfless my mom is. She is strong, kind, and extraordinary in every way! She is my best friend and she inspires me every day.”
-Sarah Hayes, Talent + Coordinator Manager
I’m inspired by how truly strong and selfless my mom is, and the full impact of how she has shaped my life became so much clearer to me when I became a mother. I aspire to be the kind of mother she is. One of my favorite parts about motherhood myself is watching my daughter grow more and more into the special person she is, and I can already envision the impact she’s going to have on the future.
-Lauren Potter, Senior Director of Operations
What inspires me most about motherhood is that it’s a tangible representation of our tremendous capacity to love. It’s a beautiful reminder of how strong women are, how deeply generous we can be, and that we can create magic when we allow ourselves to change.
-Carly Honig, Talent + Partnerships Manager
What inspires me most about motherhood is watching my littles grow their own personalities and learn to navigate the world. My favorite part about motherhood is the incredible strength you grow as a Mom! Adapting when it’s tough and when it’s magical. Learning to navigate strong feelings and love deeply through it all.
-Sheila Gray, COO
“My mom is my best friend, and has loved me unconditionally since the day I was born. She has been there through every dance competition and big milestone in my life. Feeling her unconditional love has made me a better person, and makes me want to be a mother like her to my own children someday.”
-Maddie Johnson, Talent Manager
What inspires me about motherhood is knowing that we play a fundamental role in raising strong and kind humans. My favorite part of being a mom is the unconditional love… and watching my boys become best friends.
-Solenice Burress, Senior Talent + Recruitment Manager
“My mom is my best friend and biggest cheerleader. She’s taught me that motherhood is full of unconditional love and being there for your kids through all of their highs and lows. She’s always there and I know she always will be. I aspire to provide the same kind of unconditional love and stability for my children someday.”
-Alexa, Talent + Marketing Coordinator
