A few years ago, Alina Vega was living in Los Angeles, far from her native Miami, with her daughter and husband. A marriage and family therapist, Vega said she longed for the support system she had left behind, and sought out that sense of community in the vibrant network of parenting groups and resources she found.
"It was significant for me, being out there on my own to raise my child," Vega said.
After she moved back to Miami, Vega reconnected with former California co-worker and fellow therapist Lina Acosta Sandaal. The two women decided to create the parenting network in Miami that they had found in Los Angeles.
Now they own The Nest, a center that offers therapy and parenting education and support. Read all about it in Mom, Inc. at MomsMiami.com.
