Cynthia Griner, aka @palmbeachmommyof5, is truly a class act. Like so many of us women, Cynthia is a multi-tasker who balances many roles by taking it one day at a time. We also love that Cynthia's daughter's name, Hope, is a reflection of her life motto. On top of it all, Cynthia is celebrating her 55th birthday next month and we certainly want 'in' on all of her beauty and wellness regimen. Read  on to learn more on this fabulous working mom. 

What is your favorite quote or life motto?

At the end of the day we always have HOPE.

You recently moved back to Palm Beach from St. Petersburg with your family. What makes Palm Beach stand out for you?

It's a close knit community.

To date, what would you consider your greatest accomplishment?

Married 30 years to Joe AKA Blue Eyes.

What is one fact that most wouldn’t know about you?

As much as I enjoy meeting people, and receiving energy from people…I can be a homebody!

Please tell us more about what you do for work and how you find the balance between projects and motherhood?

My new job as Shoppe Assistant Director at The French Wine Merchant has required some extra time from my husband, who works from home to take care of our 6 year old daughter. Balance within my family between Hope and her activities from Ballet at Ballet Florida, Kidz Club at The Royal Poinciana Chapel, and Tennis at Palm Beach Rec Center gives us a guaranteed 3 hours a week to have couple talk. We as a couple take one day at a time.
