In addition to contributing here at Meridian Momtourage, I am the Monmouth County Regional Editor at JerseyBites.com. At Jersey Bites, I write about everything from restaurant reviews to food happenings in and around the county.
My passion for writing and my educational background in English, creative writing and literature led me to start my own blog 2 years ago. Pieces of a Mom is a personal account of my trials, tribulations, successes, and yes, failures as a mother.
In addition to writing, I enjoy photography, reading, traveling, wine tasting, and adventure seeking.

By now we’ve had a lot of…Continue

Let's start by saying it's complicated. As a child and teenager, I was both a gymnast and a cheerleader. Daily practices and workouts were part of my sport, so I never thought twice about it. I thrived on meeting up with my fellow cheerleaders after school to perfect our pyramids and routines for both high school football and basketball games as well as cheer competitions.
