I’m a New England-born and raised mom of two boys who has lived in the South since 1996. My husband and I lived in Charlotte, NC for 12 years, about 20 months in Little Rock, 4 years in Memphis and then in the summer of 2014 we moved to Plano, TX and we’re really glad to be here!
Before motherhood I worked in technology marketing and product management, as well as project management. Today I’m like most moms – a bit of everything – wife, mom, handyman, accountant, nurse, teacher, personal shopper, and more. I also do some marketing consulting work, especially to local businesses looking to reach out to moms!
When I was a new mom I found a lot of support from an online, events-focused group in Charlotte that I later came to manage. The group grew from 500 to over 2,000 members under my watch, and I moved on to help run the non-profit organization that founded it – helping to start close to 100 local mom support sites nationwide.
I’m a communicator, and very information driven. I wasn’t finding the type of online resource I wanted in Memphis, so in 2011 I founded EastMemphisMoms.com. Today EMM sees over 36,000 visitors each month and has over 8,000 Facebook fans. The site has been on several “best of” lists and I’ve been on TV in Memphis enough that I stopped getting nervous. I still run that site, but I’m not okay with just sitting back and enjoying that success – I want to grow something here too.
