Tell us a bit about yourself (where you’re from, what your hobbies are, etc.)
Originally from Cleveland. Moved to Columbus about 4 years ago. I enjoy sewing, backpacking, cooking, and traveling.
What does a day in your life look like with your job/pursuits?
I work part-time outside the home as an Administrative Assistant.
I am married to a wonderful guy, Jacob. We were high school sweethearts and got married right out of college. We have a beautiful daughter together who is 2. We have one doggo, Libby, who was actually born on our wedding day.
When you were pregnant, did you plan on wearing your baby?
I got to wear my nephew when he was born so I knew that I wanted Babywearing in my life.
What do you love about babywearing?
The closeness and freedom it gives me as a parent. Now that I have a toddler who's constantly on the go I love that BW gives us a chance to be close.
Which one of your carriers do you use the most and what do you love about it?
I've always loved ring slings. For me they were always quick and easy.
Tell us about your main role within the CBW Leadership Team?
I currently staff the Saturday Meet Ups.
What additional role(s) do you have within the CBW Leadership Team?
I am on the Fundraising and Lending Library committees.
What drew you to become a leader for our community?
I wanted more info on Babywearing and wanted an opportunity to pass along my passion for it. So far I've gotten to do both!
What activity are you most likely to rely on babywearing to get done?
Travel. Don't ever try to do a toddler and an airport without Babywearing. It's not fun.
What skill do you hope to master over the next year? (does not have to be babywearing specific but it *can* be)
Teaching back carries.
