You can find me dishing on parenting, women's issues, and marriage over at I have a background in marketing and online community management and spent almost ten years working for one of the world's most beloved sites, I've also consulted with Google and other leading brands on their community initiatives.  When I'm not in the throes of marketing, I love antiquing, gardening, baking, and spending time with my beautiful family.
