I’m a mother, wife, writer, runner, Disney fanatic and communications consultant with more than 20 years experience in corporate communications.
I lost more than 80 pounds through running and I married my two passions, Disney and running and ran my first, of many, marathons at Walt Disney World in 2011.
Running the Walt Disney World marathon was the best experience in my life, so I decided to start the blog, Run Disney Mom, to share running, fitness and diet advice for others interested in running a Disney race. I also write the blog, Five a Day the Fun Way, which is all about making eating healthy fun! I share recipes, diet tips, exercise advice, activities and more for making living a healthy lifestyle easy and fun for the entire family. I have a passion for Disney, health, exercise and nutrition. I have my RRCA running certification so I can share my passion with others. I’m a Disney Parks Moms Panelist, circa 2012.
I’m the author of several books, including: Candy Around the World, Guilt-Free Cupcakes and Culinary Duct Tape: Greek Yogurt: Just as versatile, not as tacky. I’ve been married for 17 years to my high school sweetheart and have two beautiful children, ages 12 and and 8.
I’m a Communications Manager for a Fortune 500 company. I have my Master of Arts in Communications from Queens University of Charlotte.
I am currently pursuing my MFA at Queens University of Charlotte.
In my spare time, I write for Family Fun, Little Ones, Orbitz, Working Mother, My Carolina Town and Modern Parent.
