Press, Publications & Around the Web

Hey there! You’re probably here to check out my writing and learn a little more about me. I write a lot of stuff. I’m pretty much writing all the minutes, all the hours, all the days. Besides being the founder of Honest Mom, I am an award-winning copywriter and social media manager/blogger for a children’s book publisher.

On this page you’ll find all my Honest Mom-related writing. I keep my other work separate, so if you’re looking for copywriting or social media management, contact me and we’ll talk.
