The Ins and Outs of Parenting a Child with Severe Anaphalactic Allergies and Running Your Own Skin Care Business at Home
Alexandra Galbreth knows what it takes to navigate motherhood as an entrepreneur. From starting off as a French Immersion teacher and becoming a mom to two children- to moving to a new city and starting a whole new life with her own business – to learning how to advocate for her son’s serious allergies and finding balance with health and wellness. She is the true example of the ultimate Mompreneur.
In this episode we discuss how Alexandra has managed to juggle life as a “Mompreneur”. She discusses partnering with the number one skin care brand in North America, Rodan + Fields and running her own business, what keeps her motivated and helps her to stay on track as well as what drives her passion for health, beauty and skin care. But above all and most importantly, she speaks about raising a son with severe anaphylactic food allergies and the affect that it’s had on their family’s life. She says, “ You are given this diagnoses and sent out into the world. Now what? There should have been some sort of counselling offered and more support. I felt like a fish out of water, learning the do’s and don’ts of allergies.” People often wondered how she kept her child safe and she realized there was a real need to help others understand what allergies mean and how lost and anxious you can feel in the beginning stages of an allergy diagnoses. Just recently Alexandra has created a blog to share her journey and provide tips and recipes that she has learned and created over the last four years. The advice that Alexandra brings for all parents, including those of children with allergies and those of children without is incredibly helpful. After interviewing Alexandra in this podcast, we have a whole new appreciation for how terrifying an allergy diagnoses can be and the importance of educating others to prevent cross contamination.
