Tell us a bit about yourself (where you’re from, what your hobbies are, etc.)
I’ve lived in Columbus my whole life. My biggest hobbies are reading and running (when I’m not pregnant).
What does a day in your life look like with your job/pursuits?
I am a stay at home mom and currently spend most of my time trying to keep up with my toddler.
Tell us about your family (significant other, children, fur children, other pets, etc)
My husband Steve and I have a daughter, Brooklyn, who just turned two. We are also expecting another girl in March.
My sister in law told me about CBW when I was pregnant and I quickly became excited about wearing my baby.
What do you love about babywearing?
I love the snuggles and am looking forward to bonding with a newborn again. I also really appreciate the convenience of babywearing when my toddler is tired or needs to be contained.
Which one of your carriers do you use the most and what do you love about it?
I am generally most comfortable using soft-structured carriers, but during pregnancy I’ve preferred a meh dai.
Tell us about your main role within the CBW Leadership Team?
I co-lead the Monday Skills Workshop meeting and really enjoy teaching.
What additional role(s) do you have within the CBW Leadership Team?
I am part of the Lending Library and MELT (Education) committees.
What drew you to become a leader for our community?
I loved learning about all different kinds of carriers and thought it would be fun to teach others.
What activity are you most likely to rely on babywearing to get done?
Going to the zoo. I never go without a carrier!
What skill do you hope to master over the next year? (does not have to be babywearing specific but it *can* be)
I’d like to learn more wrap carries with a *hopefully* cooperative new baby.
