Hi! I’m Diane.
I’m a 40-something mom who was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. In 2004, I married the love of my life and moved to New Jersey. Two years later, we welcomed a bouncing baby boy into our lives. Although I consider myself to be a die-hard New Yorker and a city girl at heart, I adore living in Suburbia. I live a simple life and strive to maintain a happy and healthy family. I am passionate about a variety of issues that impact the lives of moms and women in general. I am also a sports mom who can be found shuttling my 9 year old son to and from basketball practice in the fall, and track meets in the spring. I love spending time with my family, vacationing, cooking, reading, and shopping!
Professionally, I hold a bachelor’s degree in Urban Legal Studies and a law degree from Rutgers School of Law – Newark. I spent the first years of my working life in government, working for the City of New York. I then moved on to corporate America where I negotiated complex derivative agreements for some of this country’s largest commercial banks. I left the corporate world in 2009 to spend more time with my young son and turned to the internet for my next opportunity. I began freelancing and produced several niche websites and blogs. Social media became one of my passions.

About the Blog
Life is complicated. As a working mom, I know how hard it is trying to juggle careers, raising kids, and managing a household. It always feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day to do it all. Most days it seems there is not enough time in the day, for work, the kids, and me! It’s not always easy to find balance so instead I look for tips and tricks to help keep myself sane. I am hoping that these tips and tricks will help you juggle it all more efficiently to allow for a happier, less stressful life.
