Meet Ellika

Simplifying motherhood one healthy activity at a time

Hi! My name is Ellika, most know me as Ellie. I’m a mama to two sweet little girls and pup, wife to my high school sweetheart and a family medicine doctor in Southern California. I’m a lover of crafting and baking with my littles, aimlessly walking through Target and unwinding with a glass of wine.

As a doctor, I know the importance of a health and lifestyle, but after becoming a mom, I truly realized how much effort and moving parts go into raising healthy and happy children. Motherhood is a marathon for us all. Between school drop off/pick up, work, homework, extracurricular activities, dinner prep, laundry and bath time, by the end of the day we are all beat! On top of this, we want to create memories and spend quality time as a family.

I created Dr. Mommy and Me to help busy moms, like myself, celebrate everyday moments without the stress of researching and planning. With this digital subscription, each month, I’m able to bring my favorite seasonal arts and crafts ideas that enhance development, healthy recipes, screen-free activities, health tips and reading recommendations straight to your inbox. I can’t wait to share our journey through motherhood. 

Behind Dr. Mommy and Me

Dr. Mommy and Me subscription aims to unlock the curious minds through fun wholesome activities whilst promoting mind and body health and development.  

As both a doctor and a mom, I am a big believer that children should develop a strong foundation to support their physical and mental health. As parents we are so busy with our daily tasks, but just 15 minutes per day can create moments for the whole family while developing lifelong skills. 

We aim to reduce time parents need to plan so they can spend that valuable time with their children. Our monthly curated activities inspire creativity, encourage focus on physical and mental health, connect children with nature, increase their love for reading, and explore senses through the fun of cooking and eating.
