About WeGo

A parenting expert, mom of tantrum free triplets, published writer, and founder of WeGo kids.

I started WeGo kids 2 years after I had triplets. We offer innovative apparel and accessories designed to cultivate your child's healthiest potential.

During the first year I found myself telling parents "It's not about the clothes, it's about the purpose and parenting behind them."

Prior to starting my family, I spent over a decade studying and applying principles of Emotional Intelligence while leading the Human Resources departments of companies like Aveda & Marriott. With my MBA and certification as a Senior Professional of Human Resources, I assessed the Emotional Intelligence in the organization, developing succession plans for leadership, implementing trainings and creating recruiting strategies to fill Emotional Intelligence gaps in the organization.

Fast forward to when my dream of becoming a parent came true in a HUGE WAY with triplets! And even though as a first time mom, I had no idea what I was doing, instinctively, I approached everything from the standpoint of wanting to build their emotional intelligence. The result? NO terrible 2s, NO threenagers and with THREE toddlers, they have never had a tantrum! #raisingEI

In February 2018, in addition to the clothing line, WeGo kids will launch the first ever web TV show for parents. Laugh, cry, complain, and celebrate each step of your parenting journey with us. “The View” meets “The Talk” and “The Chew.” 3 moms and 2 dads tackle topics such as "How do I talk to my kids about violent attacks" to "How and when do I teach my kids financial responsibility?"

A graduate of the University of Florida, I have my Masters of Business in Entrepreneurship and Management and earned my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. I currently live in Tampa with my husband, Parag, and our triplets.

Quote

Whether or not you have children yourself, you are a parent to the next generation. If we can only stop thinking of children as individual property and think of them as the next generation, then we can realize we all have a role to play. - Charlotte Kasl
