The Rebel Mama

Co-Founders of The Rebel Mama Inc | Bestselling Co-Authors of “The Rebel Mama’s Handbook for (Cool) Moms”

Nikita Stanely and Aleks Jassem are definitely not regular moms…

 In 2014, the two combined their talents and a mutual distaste for the typical mommy rhetoric to create The Rebel Mama. Adored by moms around the globe, these  “mommy-group drop-outs” use their platform to smash stigmas, create safe & judgement-free spaces, and foster community connections among their ever-growing audience. The Rebel Mama brand is celebrated for its embodiment of individuality, inclusivity, and authenticity. 


 The Rebel Mama(s) have worked with organizations and brands around the world to bring perspectives and insights from their community to audiences and marketing campaigns. They’re bold enough to be confident, fearless enough to be honest, and they’re brazen enough to set out to change the world.


 Between the two, Aleks and Nikita are mamas to three kids, a dog and a cat. Both reside in Toronto and survive (almost) exclusively on peanut butter sandwiches, Napolitano pizza, and coffee. So much coffee.
