ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Active moms have a lot to do. Sitting for 30 minutes while baby is feeding, twins are potty training, a 4 year old is flipping around, and 14 others are doing 'God knows what', should not be one of them! As an active mother of four, then ages four and younger, also with up to 14 other children living in our home; 5 years at a group home then 11 years at a boarding school, I've lived through the ultimate active lifestyle and created a Premium Baby Carrier.
As a Wife: nearly 25 years happily married to Bryan E. Warner, 'The One God Hand-Picked Just for Me'. I've been blessed with a super fabulous, loving, caring, uber supportive husband! (WOW, we've been married more than half my life!) He caught the vision that was revealed to me and, although neither of us knew the depth of the process, he still decided to walk alongside me to see the promise fulfilled. No better partner this side of Heaven to be with on this journey called life!
As a Mother: I am ever so humbled and thankful that God entrusted me with 4 precious lives! All teenagers now; 20, 18, 18, 16. PRAY for us! No really, they're all Honors students (1 in college/3 in high school), responsible, athletic, kind and employed! I'd wanted 4 children since I was 8 years old; just because that particular even number made sense to me. Crazy, right?! We were married 4 years with no children then had 4 in 4 years! For 4 years my mother prayed for the birth order of our children; a boy first, identical twin girls in the middle and a girl last. Go figure...my mom got just what she prayed for! 4 must be my lucky number, huh?...
As an Inventor: I have created and continue to create purposeful products that help improve healthcare outcomes for babies through babywearing, bonding and breastfeeding and improve the overall quality of life of the user who can now stay active in comfort. I am the patent-pending inventor of GoGoVie Premium Baby Carrier.

As a Public Speaker: I am sought after to speak on topics about entrepreneurship, inventing, life/work balance, parenting and organization.
