Founded by Allison in 2009 as Mom in Chapel Hill, Mom in the Triangle has grown to become a valued resource for many parents in the Triangle, an accomplishment that is simply inspiring and one she is so very proud of.
|I graduated from NC State University in 2000 with a degree in Environmental Design in Architecture. I spent the next 9 years working in commercial architecture designing everything from churches to car dealerships. After my son’s birth in July 2009, I planned for 8 weeks maternity leave. The economy changed those plans and I became a full time stay-at-home mom. I have since returned to working full time outside of the home, had a second child (a little girl!), became a SAHM again, and currently am working part time. Being an energetic person (read: can’t sit still) and having been immersed in the blogging world for over a decade, joining Allison on this adventure has been a natural fit. Thanks for joining us as we explore the Triangle with our little ones!|
As the Bloggette Emeritus of Mom In Chapel Hill I am so proud of what I created and to see it continue and grow. I am still blogging both personally and professionally, so please stay in touch! A 2000 graduate of the University of Virginia, I majored in English then, upon graduation, promptly did nothing related to literature or writing. The stints in journalism I did throughout my academic life didn’t lead to anything big, and I went in a different direction.I worked at PBS for many years in a great job that I believed in. Yet since I was telecommuting, I knew it wasn’t a long term solution. So when my husband (“DH”) and I decided to start our own family, I took the opportunity to leave the job and venture back to what I was passionate about. Reporting. Writing. And that made me find Blogging for the first time.I also teach group fitness in the area, and was a professional ballet dancer then jazz dancer for many years. I will always appreciate movement and music.I believe wholeheartedly in parents supporting parents. It is certainly the hardest job out there. Let’s be a team.
