LISTENING. PASTORING. TEACHING. SCRIBBLING.
I'm the Creative Empathy Officer at Mohawkmomma Studio. I answer to Un-dray-ah (Andrea). My nickname, Mohawkmomma, has been with me for over ten years from my children telling their friends, "My mom wears a Mohawk."
I’ve been married to Keith for over 20 years and we have eight children on this earth (and one in heaven). I engage and lead the world and my life as an Enneagram 5 - Observer, Sage, Identifier, Investigator. I'm a firstborn, curious, writing soul. I encourage others to join me in moments of holy, soul care disruption and self-care in solidarity.
It is my mission in this life to empower and guide people with soul care and self-care tools and scriptural teachings so that they can live a sustainable life of purpose and shalom.
My focus on correcting other’s and my own excesses in a way that’s whole-making, shalom-making is what sets me apart from the rest. I am obsessed with shalom - we gifted our last daughter with the name. I've worked for many years in different industries, all of which have helped to create the base of the woman I am today. In the past, I have used my creativity to work with non-profits, churches, to start blogs, ministries, and businesses.
You might as well know that I am unashamedly hooked on sticky notes. I really don't know how I'd survive without them, they keep me focused and imaginative.
Grab My Professional Bio Below!
Bio: Andrea "Mohawkmomma" Palmer is a wordsmith soul, author, and independent publisher who creates and pastors at the meeting place of word, image, and faith. She enjoys fruit and veggie smoothies, the musical stylings of India Arie and Lauryn Hill, nature walks, and playing board games with family. She specializes in soul care and teaches others how to give to themselves as much as they give of themselves in order to live a more sustainable, full and embodied life (flaws and all), because the part of me I reject is the part of me I cannot heal.
DESIGNING. ILLUSTRATING. IMAGINING.
I'm the Creative Design Officer here at MMS. My name is Anneliese Palmer, and I’m always wearing a pencil and a few flowers in my hair, and I’m never without a sketchbook. I find inspiration in nature, shapes, and colors, so I’m always designing.
Here I wear a lot of hats.
I graduated from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale with an Associate’s degree in Fashion Design in 2018, so I bring my skills in concept and product design; color forecasting; photography; and graphics/illustration designing to the table.
And with Mohawmomma being my actual mom, that table is usually in our dining room!

Whom do we serve?
So many phenomenal women and girls are nurturing, leading, and influencing at a high level with huge responsibilities in their families and communities. They’re students, directors, volunteers, staff leaders, teachers, prophets, preachers, poets, and pastors in churches. They’re entrepreneurs. They manage teams in the workplace. They’re leaders in non-profit organizations and digital spaces, they’re innovators who influence the masses with their art form.
Basically, we serve the soul that dares to courageously engage their unique femininity in the world as a shalom-maker (peacemaker), in order to be salt and light as an agent of God's love, personally and collectively.
How are you really, sis?
When you’re busy nurturing, leading, building initiatives and developing everyone else, it's hard to make space for all you need to flourish and attend to yourself. Does this describe a little of what your life looks like? If so - siSTAR, I see you. Your potential is amazing, your leadership matters, and I want to help you flourish in all you’re called to be.
What to expect from The SOULjouner Collective:
Teaching and training on contemplative living that I won't be sharing anywhere else.
First to be updated about new podcast episodes, events and new resources in the boutique.
Our weekly emails are a free gift.
How do I join?
There are lots of ways to participate in what we offer at Mohawkmomma Studio and we would LOVE to have you join us! You can also join our Patreon Community for many monthly meditation guides and publishing tips!
So what is the GOAL of MOHAWKMOMMA STUDIO???
It’s simple… we offer our publishing services to writers and mentoring support for them to embrace our soul care (life nurturing) resolve and approach, "To give TO yourself as much as you give OF yourself." We hope you’ll join us in the art and activism of self-nurture!
