Motherhood, Parenting, Family


Boston University


Parenting three children continues to be a joyful journey for me. It has its challenges, but when the path gets steep or uncertain, I know I can count on those that have gone ahead. Now that I’ve traveled a chunk of that road, I enjoy pairing my experience with current research to help us all make better choices for our families. I’ve discovered that there is a lot we can learn from leaning into the wisdom of our collective village.
