Catalina Ivanovich Burbank’s Go To Mom

Cat is a multi-tasker.

Between running her store and taking care of her baby, Cat certainly has her hands full. “I don’t have free time anymore,” she laughs.

And it isn’t hard to imagine. I caught Cat on a lazy afternoon, when she was looking after her daughter, putting together a registry, attending to customers, and telling me about herself. She managed all of this without breaking a sweat in the early summer heat.

Cat is the owner of Mia & the Dragonfly, a boutique that specializes in baby clothing and essentials. Before she opened her store, she worked as a producer and production supervisor in the film business.

“I was working on a film with my husband in New York when I got pregnant,” Cat says. “When I realized that Burbank didn’t have a baby store, I decided to open one.”

Running a store also allows Cat to spend more time with her daughter, Mia. With its fresh appearance, unique merchandise, and Mia’s playpen tucked away in the corner, Mia & the Dragonfly encompasses the bright and busy lifestyle of new motherhood.

With the status of motherhood also came the idea for the Magnolia Park Mamas, a group for new mothers around the Burbank area. Cat helps manage and organize events for the Magnolia Park Mamas, of which include grabbing coffee at Romancing the Bean, weekly walks on the Chandler bike path, and baby-momma yoga at the Yoga Blend.

Cat is as busy as a new mother can be, but she always has time for anyone who walks through her doors.

“If you are in the Burbank or North Hollywood area, please come visit our baby store and say hello!”
