Parenting Left of the Middle
Welcome to my website! I'm a west coast mom living in the San Francisco Bay Area. I blog about parenting my fierce and fuzzy child Jack. I don't prescribe to any particular parenting methods - I'm a bit left of the middle!

I've been featured on My Postpartum Voice and in the BlogHer Moms section on BlogHer. In addition to writing for Savvy Source and Savings.com, I was a lead content editor and Board Member at Band Back Together.
