Sharon K.

Videographer Photographer
I’m Sharon, a wife, mom, daughter, friend, newborn filmmaker and quintessential storyteller. I have always been passionate about living life, chasing dreams, and enjoying the journey of it all. In 2017, I left my corporate 9 to 5 to chase my dream—launching my own production company, Lovelight Pictures. ​Thank God for my husband, my numero-uno supporter, who essentially threatened me, that if I didn’t follow my dreams, he would stop talking to me. Well, needless to say, I took a leap of faith. Little did I know, I also found out I was having my very own baby a.k.a little dumpling. The greatest days in my life was the day I had my newborn. When I see my baby girl, I see a miracle. She melts my heart when she falls asleep in my arms or when she flashes her radiant smile. I love hearing her coo and listening to her raucous laughs—matter of fact, this has become the inspiration for our newborn services—coo, gurgle and babble. As I tried to capture these newborn memories for myself, my “eureka” moment occurred. Why not preserve similar newborn and family memories for other moms and dads? And that’s how I gave birth to Little Dumpling Films! I want to help families preserve their baby's moments that they can cherish forever—because the one thing you don’t get back is time.

Panos I.

Acupuncturist
Health and wellness have been an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember. I always tagged along with my mom Saturday mornings to the health food store and chiropractor. She taught me how important it was to take care of my body and mind naturally. Looking back, I am grateful for her persistence because it lead me to study Nutrition in college. There I began to truly understand the transformative and healing power of holistic medicine, specifically Traditional Chinese Medicine. I gravitated towards classes like Point Location, Pulse and Tongue Diagnostics, Oriental Medicine Theory and Herbal Medicine and went farther to pursue a Masters in Traditional Oriental Medicine. Acuworx is the culmination of two decades of experience in the art of acupuncture and helping thousands of patients. Here, I have turned my passion into practice and invite you to join me on a journey to help you achieve a higher level of wellness and health.

Grace V.

Postpartum Doula Lactation Counselor (CLC) Childbirth Educator Newborn/Parenting Educator
I have been fascinated by the process of pregnancy, birth and lactation since I was a little girl. I got to fulfill my dream and start learning about those subjects during my first doula training in 2002. I became certified in 2007 after another training, and have worked with parents ever since, going full time as a "birth worker" in 2015, after the birth of my 2nd daughter. That is when the world of postpartum support was opened to me and I love it. Being with new parents as they get to know their babies is one of my greatest joys. I also love to teach prenatal education and help them prepare for what's ahead: birth, breast/chestfeeding and newborn care. I love my role in easing the way into this tremendous transformation of becoming a newborn family.

Conrad S.

Fitness Coach
After a few years of working in finance, I created ICS Fitness because I have experienced first hand, and through others, the multitude of physical, mental, and spiritual benefits that a progressive, well-designed training program can offer. I collaborate with individuals looking to make healthy lifestyle changes, and provide them with the necessary tools and guidance to obtain their fitness goals. In my childhood, I enjoyed playing sports, especially basketball, inspired by my father who was a professional basketball player. I knew then that sports would always be part of my life, and as I grew older I became drawn to the union of athleticism and health. This, in combination with my penchant for helping others led me to my career path in personal training. After graduating in the top 5% of my class at the American Academy of Personal Training in New York City, I took my first job at a high-end gym. I then had the opportunity to work with top industry leaders and gained a wealth of knowledge and expertise. After four years training, and managing a boutique personal training team, it was time to venture out on my own. Today, in stark contrast to my days in finance, every morning I wake up excited to work with a broad spectrum of enthusiastic and motivated individuals seeking fitness training in a number of different areas. My personal philosophy is to do what you love and to always be learning. I continue to learn by attending as many seminars, conferences and fitness workshops as possible. Furthermore, I have a Master's degree in Kinesiology. Additionally, I am fluent in Spanish, French, English, and German, as well as a little Basque. I also have a degree in Languages Applied to Business, and a Master's degree in Management and Cross-Cultural Negotiations from the University of Bordeaux, France. All of which allows me to be a dedicated, multidimensional and distinct personal trainer.

Margot S.

Baby Feeding Specialist Pregnancy Coach Baby Sleep Consultant Newborn/Parenting Educator Lactation Counselor (CLC)
My name is Margot Lowenstein Simmons and I was born to mother...much to the chagrin of my younger sister, and if I had known what a doula was when I was growing up in Washington, DC, my life would have looked a lot different. Today, I am working to redefine the scope of doula. I am a trained postpartum doula, a certified breastfeeding counselor and a Sleep Savvy Gentle Sleep Coach. I bring my own personal humor and joy for family to my work. My Masters in early childhood development, along with my own unique birth, postpartum and toddler-raising experiences help me support a wide variety of families as they tackle the often-unplanned for aftermath of bringing baby home and raising young kids. I provide truly nonjudgemental support and specialize in offering practical tips and tricks, coaching to ensure a happy, relaxed family unit, transitioning to and from work, as well as the special experience of having toddlers! Because - I think we could all use a little less judgement and little more doula.

Rachel W.

Yoga Instructor Health Coach Fitness Coach
I’m an expert in postnatal fitness. Pelvic pain, hip pain, wrist pain, tearing, prolapse, diastasis—women come to me with all of these injuries. You don’t come out of pregnancy and birth uninjured. Using my extensive knowledge of postpartum physical therapy and fitness, I will teach you how to heal your body from the inside out. After giving birth to my first daughter, I was in your shoes—frustrated with a body that didn’t feel like my own. You’d think that if anyone’s body would snap back into shape it would be a yoga teacher’s! And by many standards, I did bounce back: Three weeks after giving birth I was taking my favorite boutique fitness classes and wearing my pre-pregnancy clothes. Internally, it was a different story. I had injured wrists, achy hips, lower back pain, and a hollow feeling where my core used to be. With more than 20 years of yoga, Eastern medicine, and fitness knowledge under my belt, I knew as much as there was to know about healing and anatomy...but that knowledge wasn’t putting my body back together. It is a tragic public health failure that women are left alone, without accurate education or resources on how to heal our postnatal bodies. So I embarked on my own quest to fill the postnatal void for myself, and that led to my helping women everywhere. I met with a ton of pelvic health experts and physical therapists. I dove back into restorative yoga, and studied the links between the nervous system, relaxation, strength and stability. I shifted from hardcore workouts to balance-focused ones. While I love a sweaty workout, I needed to heal my postpartum body before getting back to that level of intensity. I pulled my meditation cushion out of the closet, deepening my mind-body connection and listening to my body’s feedback on the work I was doing. Not only was my body healing and strengthening, my mind was sharpening, becoming more focused and happier. By scheduling consistent time with myself and my body, I was not only achieving the recovery I yearned for, I was also developing a richer relationship between “me,” the woman, and “me,” the wife, mother, entrepreneur and world citizen. Finally, I started to thrive. In the midst of my recovery, I knew I wasn’t the only woman who was felt paralyzed and unable to heal herself. So I created something brand new: Revolution Motherhood is a fitness method that teaches women how to understand their postnatal injuries, and guides them in making a full recovery from pregnancy and childbirth—safely and lovingly. As new mothers, we are busier than we’ve ever been. Exercise is often the thing that drops off our never-ending to-do lists. Yet you need exercise—to heal, strengthen and understand yourself, and to figure out how to do this new thing called motherhood! You can no longer accept life in a dysfunctional body. You are starting a whole new relationship with yourself. Motherhood is the opportunity of your lifetime—physically, emotionally, spiritually. Everything has been realigned and needs rebuilding. Developing a healthy relationship to your new body—caring for it, healing it, tending to it—is the magic step that transcends the fatigue and fear. From there, you have the space to offer your unique gifts to your children, yourself, and the world. With Revolution Motherhood, I take everything I’ve learned while recovering from three pregnancies and share it with you. I make your “me time” meaningful by healing and strengthening your body, and by giving you a roadmap to your own mental well-being and happiness.
