FOUNDER AND MANAGING EDITOR
Dani is a 30-something freelance writer and social media consultant who grew up in Singapore and has an unhealthy love for makeup, hair, and fashion. She currently lives in Toronto, Canada with her husband and 6-year-old daughter, and dreams of retiring to a warmer climate one day. Preferably tomorrow. When she decided to put her career in corporate marketing on hold to stay home and raise her daughter, she was grossly unprepared for how difficult it would be, and while she enjoyed most moments of her first, sleep-deprived year as a mother, she started to feel as though she was losing a part of herself. So after a particularly long and colicky night, she put on a little lipstick, got out her best pair of high-heeled shoes, and decided to create a space where her ‘village’ could come together to share the things they’re most passionate about in an effort to make the lives of modern, fabulous women (hers included!) a little easier.
BEAUTY AND WELLNESS EDITOR
Kate is a freelance writer with a background in fashion, beauty and wellness. She’s always had a passion for the written word, and after interning at publications such as FASHION Magazine and The Kit, she knew she had to take her passion to the next level. When she’s not trying out new recipes, taking a hot yoga class, or curled up with a good book, you can find her blogging about lifestyle tips and entrepreneurialism at Layered Indulgence.
LIFE STAGES EDITOR
Tania is a fulltime writer and blogger based in Dallas, Texas. Her love of writing goes back to her pre-school days— as a young girl, she decided she was either going to become a writer or an actress. However, after receiving a scholarship as an acting major in college, she jumped ship after one semester and became a journalism major instead, deciding it was best to keep her dramatics on pen and paper rather than the stage (although her acting skills have certainly come in handy over the years). After spending eight years living in and remodeling homes with her husband (while documenting all their adventures, of course!), they are now taking a remodeling breather to enjoy spending time with their one-year-old daughter. Tania calls blogging the other love of her life—she owns and runs the popular DIY site, Run to Radiance as well as a business where she works with bloggers to provide blog content and social media strategy.
Katie Reed is passionate about parenting. She is a 30-something work-at-home mom from Salt Lake City, Utah, with three young boys, a cute husband and an unhealthy obsession with coffee. She is the voice behind the popular mom blog, It’s a Mother Thing, where she shares anecdotes about life as a modern mom. She’s a mental health advocate, and her work has been featured on The Huffington Post, PopSugar Moms and the Daily Mail. She won a Voice of the Year honor from BlogHer 2016 in the MOMents That Matter category, sponsored by Merck for Mothers. She spends most of her time trying not to swear in front of her Mormon in-laws. The rest of her time is spent on Pinterest, where she tells herself that tomorrow she will learn how to make that cool woven chevron rug from rope and old t shirts.
Nicole Johnson is the President of The Baby Sleep Site®, which was founded in 2008. Nicole is a married mother of two wonderful boys. When her eldest son was born, he had a lot of sleep problems – he would wake every one or two hours, all night long! She got busy and thoroughly researched literature and scientific reports until she became an expert in sleep methods, scheduling routines, baby developmental needs, and more. She began her journey to help moms cope with their babies’ sleep schedule by leading an internet-based message board. She overcame her son’s sleeping issues in a way that matched her own parenting style, and knew it was her mission to help other tired parents “find their child’s sleep”. Her goal was for new parents to overcome their own sleeping challenges much quicker than she had. Following that, she created The Baby Sleep Site® and expanded her offerings to include e-books, articles, a blog, and customized sleep consulting. The feedback from around the world has been incredible. The Baby Sleep Site® enjoys over 1 million visitors per month and has personally helped almost 20,000 families overcome their babies’ sleep challenges. Nicole and her team offer professional, sound support that works. Maybe they can help you, too!
