Jersey Garcia | JerseyGarcia.com
Jersey Garcia (Momma Harmony) is a positivity enthusiast, solution seeker, and wanna-be humorist who supports overwhelmed working mothers and mompreneurs to lead, serve, and grow in harmony.
On the peak of her overwhelm, Jersey was managing three phones, working out of three computers, and driving throughout south Florida visiting clients. She was also mowing her home’s lawn; attempting to not overreact to her mother’s pessimism; and was franticly trying to make it to every school parent advisory and homeowner association meeting.
Exhausted, Jersey realized that this pace of life was not sustainable. She needed to shred old beliefs, evolve her mindset, and stop running herself in circles that stressed her out. Her solution: “Get Help!” She hired a coach, visited her therapist supervisor often, and began implementing systems to bring ease into her life.
She created the Momma Harmony community in order to offer intensives, coaching, support and tools that help women tackle overwhelm, manage stress and balance their relationships.
Jersey completed a Masters of Public Health and another Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy. Jersey has been working with women and their significant others since she was 17 years old (last time she counted she has had over 21 different jobs including the dog sitting gig that lasted a summer). When she is not frolicking in the Momma Harmony Facebook page, you will find her nuzzling in her bed with the newest edition of O Magazine, trying to convince her children that one more hour of cartoons will do them good.
