Portland, Oregon

I'm the founder of Parent Hacks -- a site devoted to sharing smart tips for life + kids. I'm currently working on a Parent Hacks book, forthcoming from Workman Publishing in 2016.

Parent Hacks was one of Real Simple's three choices for "best parenting and family blog," a Daily Beast "Beast Best" award winner, and three-time recipient of Babble's "#1 Most Useful" Top Mom Blog honor.

I'm the author, with Christine Koh, of Minimalist Parenting: Enjoy Modern Family Life More by Doing Less. Cool Mom Picks called Minimalist Parenting "the must-have book of the year. And hopefully every year."

I believe people are generally good, smart, and generous. I do my best to share that message every day.

I live in Portland, Oregon with my husband, 16 year-old son, and 12 year-old daughter.
