Tina Unrue is a working mom and the founder and owner of Selfish Mama–a community that empowers moms to create a life they deserve, not a life they tolerate. Not too long ago, Tina was once drowning in stress and knew there had to be more to life than the wash-rinse-repeat monotony she was living. She pursued life coaching in 2016, thinking a new career would fix everything. It did, but in a roundabout way. The process to become a life coach—a career that helps others—ended up changing her own life, from the inside out. Now, she lives a life that she loves…well, most of the time. She’s passionate about sharing her perfectly imperfect approach to life with her young daughter and using her coaching certification to help other working mamas find their happy place. She believes the key to a life you love is an inside game–requiring focus on yourself–and encourages mamas to do so with humor, grace and most of all, acceptance.
Interesting (maybe) facts:
Has one young daughter, two adult step-daughters, and three grandchildren
Enjoys photography, reading, hiking, and cooking (the instant pot is intimidating!)
Tries to be a student of her daughter just as much as she is her teacher (unless her patience is worn thin)
Curses like a sailor…sometimes
Tina lives in Northern Virginia. She can be found at www.selfishmama.com and at the following social media outlets:
