I live, work, and raise my family in the D.C. Metro area. As a 20-year plus resident of the D.C. Metro area, I have visited Washington, D.C., hotels, restaurants, and sites many times with family, friends, and out-of-town guests. I have walked the Mall, visited the FDR Memorial, trudged up the Smithsonian Metro stairs, listened in the Senate, and dined at Capitol Hilton Hotel.
I blog about raising kids in the Washington, D.C., area. On this blog I have written posts on topics such as, meeting the Harlem Globetrotters, reading the Washington Post, and touring D.C. with a tween or a teen.
I write for two D.C.-based blogs. I am a Contributing Writer for DCMetroMoms.com, a regional blog in the Silicon Valley Moms Group. For DC Metro Moms, I have covered D.C.’s Snowmageddon, my almost brush with fame at the Metro Cooking DC Show, why I no longer commute in to D.C., and a day at the Spy Museum with my teen.
I am the Parenting and Families Editor for DC Ladies, where I wrote about flying out of D.C. to Orlando with my almost-7-year-old and living to tell the tale, meeting Buddy the Dinosaur at the National Museum of Natural History, and why I am a mommy blogger.
In addition to blogging and writing, I moderate DC.CityMommy: an interactive space for DC, MD, and VA moms to find out about events, discuss topics, and explore what the DC Metro area has to offer.
I am a beta tester for Family Circle’s Momster.com: a site for moms of tweens and teens. I started groups on chores, sleeping habits of tweens and teens, online safety and social networking, and what life was like when moms were tweens and teens.
As a naturalized U.S. citizen, I call D.C. home, but I was born in England. My husband on the other hand is a D.C. native. Our kids have explored D.C. since before they could talk and walk.
I have a 7-year-old son, an 11-year-old daughter, and a 14-year-old daughter. I am the Preteen editor for two parenting sites: TypeAMom and Baltimore Examiner.
