Hi everyone! My name is Raina, the creator of The Mama Queen LLC 🙂 I’m 34-years-old but feeling like I’m still in my 20’s haha. My family and I currently live in San Diego, CA (where my husband and I grew up). I’ve been happily married to the love of my life, Leo, for almost 10 years. We have a 7-year-old named Scarlett, a an almost 6-year-old named Landon and a 4-year-old named Liam!
I graduated from California State University, Fullerton with bachelor degrees in Dance and Communications, emphasis in Broadcast Journalism. I was a dance teacher, high school dance team coach, and Pure Barre instructor for years before becoming the Musical Production Coordinator at a San Diego charter school. I resigned from my job 2 years ago to be a full-time mom and to focus on growing my blog and social media. It wasn’t an easy decision but I know it was the right one. I couldn’t be happier.
I started this blog 6 years ago because I wanted to remind myself and other women, that even when we become wives and mothers, we still have to value ourselves in the highest regard. We are queens of our own little kingdoms and all energy, time and even self are given to our families. The responsibilities of a “Queen” are exhausting but we still need to put our gowns and crowns on and remember to hold our heads high! That means it’s our royal responsibility to fulfill our motherhood duties and also make time for ourselves. It’s so important to do what makes us happy and esteem ourselves like the queens we are!
