Meet the Sassy Mama Founders
This committed team of ladies made us what we are today – an amazing resource for Sassy Mamas around Singapore (as well as Dubai and Hong Kong!).
Local girl Lynn was born in Singapore and born to be a dedicated mama. With four boys in tow (10 years, 4 years and 2 years and 3 months), the dynamic multi-tasker is keeping her fingers crossed that a little baby girl will complete what she affectionately calls her, “crazily intense family”. Married to an established Italian restaurateur, Lynn is also endowed with an entrepreneurial streak, first establishing her own PR agency before moving onto become the Executive Director and partner of a successful integrated communications company. Known for her generous appetite and her passion for the F&B industry, Lynn has a natural penchant for feeding her little ones well, and takes great joy in scrutinising the diet of her kids. While she embraces all things modern, she’s a firm believer in all things trad when it comes to pre-natal, confinement and post-natal treatments. When asked how she balances her hectic work life with motherhood, her answer is, “There is much joy in motherhood, as long as you have a supportive husband!”
Hester is originally from the incredibly glamorous city of Bristol, in England. Determined to escape her West-Country roots (though a love of good scrumpy should never be lost) she packed off for uni at Oxford to waste several years on a degree in Philosophy and never looked back… Following a stint in Switzerland eating too much fondue and meeting her future husband, they jumped at the chance to follow their dream of heading to Asia, and landed in Hong Kong in 2008. Along with partners-in-crime and fellow Tai-Tais, Maura Thompson and Natalie Firestone, she founded Sassy in 2009 and then Sassy Mama in 2011 after the birth of her daughter Elodie. Number 2 daughter Margot arrived in August 2012 and then two months later it was off to her new home in Singapore with tinies in tow. Hester is discovering the Lion City one shophouse at a time with a love for seeking out Singapore’s hidden secrets!
