I’ve been a content creator since 2002, placing hundreds of articles and essays in newsstand magazines and websites like Parenting, Good Housekeeping, Parents, Midwest Living, The Washington Post, NBCNews.com, NYTimes.com, and many more. I moved into digital publishing in 2005 as a pioneer in the “mommy blogging” landscape, and was an early podcaster on home and family life, starting in 2012.
The Mom Hour podcast, co-hosted with Sarah Powers, launched in 2015 and has been downloaded over 15M times and reaches many thousands of loyal listeners each week.
I live with my new husband Eric and my two teenagers, and our large blended family of adult kids are a constant presence in our home. While I have resided in Southwest Michigan for the past fifteen years, Northern Michigan – specifically the Upper Peninsula – is like a second home to me.
I love nature, books, music, sharing stories and connecting over tea. I can’t wait to get to know you.
