About Me

I am a parenting blogger looking to help brands connect with parents and families on a deeper level. I started writing a little bit of everything in 2013, but narrowed down my niche by 2014. I was a nanny cor over 10 years and tried to run my parenting blog while the kids were napping. 

I live in a small town in south-central Washington and was the only nanny in my community for 4 years. I currently work as a substitute ParaProfessional and a back-up nanny so I can focus more on my writing career. 

I would like to focus on blogging, SEO and newsletter writing for businesses whose customers are parents, kids or families. My rates are flexible and listed are the base prices.
