Meg is a working mom of four and an avid community volunteer. She has worked in corporate communications and media relations for more than 18 years, for a Fortunate 500 company as well as a non-profit. She took some time off to enjoy life as a stay at home mom after the birth of her first child in 2008. Her sweet, introverted daughter, was excited to welcome her baby brother in 2013, and then boy/girl twins joined the family in 2016. Meg finds being an “office mama” a constant balancing act and never-ending challenge but enjoys the opportunities it offers her for personal growth. A Virginia girl at heart, she loves Florida’s warm weather, the great quality of life Jacksonville offers her family.

Mothering Sunday is what Mother’s Day is called in the United Kingdom. How fitting, that it is a verb and not a noun. Celebrating the noun is not really the object here. It’s celebrating...

Doing My Best? Most Days I’m Just Trying to Make It Through

Most days I’m just trying to make it through. That’s not how I wanted to go through motherhood, nope. I thought I’d be all flags flying, trumpets blasting, riding through parenting on a big...
