Born in New York and raised in Florida, Jaclyn Stapp is a southern girl at heart who overall enjoys life especially acting and competing in pageants since age 13. This one time skinny, boyish looking girl recalls her first introduction to the stage and lights when her mom entered her in her first pageant at a nearby mall. That experience led the way for Jaclyn to embark on various opportunities in pageantry, modeling, acting, and the start of fulfilling her childhood dreams. With a great passion for TV and modeling, Jaclyn has loved the spot light and the spot light loves Jaclyn.
Jaclyn was crowned Mrs. Florida America 2008, and placed 1st runner up in Mrs. America. Now as a mother of three, Jaclyn is an all-new person with insights on postnatal fitness, diet and skincare.
To share her life experiences as a mother and embracing parenthood, while staying healthy and fit, we have with us Jaclyn Stapp, who graces our last issue for the year!
With a pretty incredible background as a philanthropist, fashion model, and former miss New York USA, you have embraced motherhood with utmost grace and perfection. If given a chance to define this new phase of your spectacular journey, how would you define it?
Motherhood is the greatest gift of my life. It’s not the easiest job but I can say, for me, the most rewarding. I cherish every moment hearing them call out mom, mommy, mama. I am committed to God, and my family. Growing up in a family of five children, I learned early in life about the joys and challenges of being responsible and respectful. Being more of a giver than a taker. Mentoring, teaching, loving and passing on family traditions to my children will help shape their lives. The impact on my life of being a wife and mother defines my journey in life.
You have been blessed with three wonderful children. Share real challenges that you face as a working mother. Many women try to keep away from experiencing motherhood with the fear of added burden of managing work & home life.
It is not an easy task to juggle motherhood, being a wife, a job, the kids school schedule, their music lessons, sports activities , and staying involved in community service. So I have learned to prioritize, organize, and ask for help when I need it. It takes a while but I finally mastered multitasking and delegating. I love my career and value my work to make an impact on the community and those in need. Some days I may call out sick, skip hair, makeup, and glitz! Other times, when I have dance practice and football at the same time and cannot cook, Dad kicks in or I tap into food delivery which the kids love. With tons of emails, speaking engagements and traveling on tour with hubby calendars help keep me organized. Every mom has a different schedule and family needs. Weekends for me are prime time when I recharge my batteries from the week, put away the phone, laptop, the errands, and focus on making the weekend fun and last. We mothers some how have a miraculous way of making things happen and do what works best for our families.
