About our Guest – Laura Hernandez

Laura was a mama of 4 children and in 4.5 years she added 6 more children to her family; 3 biological children and 3 adopted children. Three of her children have special needs and they have over 20 appointments weekly. On top of that, Laura also home schools 5 of her children.

So how does she manage? Laura had to learn how to be productive and create systems for her family and that is where Mamasystems was born. Now Laura saves other Mamas time and brings more peace into their homes by coaching them through ideas, schedules, incentives, chores and delegating.
