About

Hi! I’m Jennie.

I have lived through eleven years of parenting up to five kids, and I have a few nuggets of wisdom to share. But I am not a parenting expert. Rather, I am on a journey alongside other moms, learning as I go. I am a problem-solver, a researcher, and a supporter.

I also strive to provide encouragement and shed light on the raw reality of motherhood, largely through my Facebook group, Maternal Reality. My goal is for moms to see parenting as something to be done authentically, not perfectly.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Arts in College Student Personnel. After graduate school, I spent two years in a service position at a Catholic campus parish before moving on to a program coordinator position in a teaching center at a university where I stayed for over nine years. I had all four of my kids while working there. When I returned from maternity leave after our fourth baby was born, we dealt with a barrage of illnesses and childcare issues that led us to reevaluate whether it even made sense for me to go to work anymore.

It didn’t. I decided to stay home with the kids and continue working on this website on the side. What a blessing to work for myself on a project that I look forward to every day!
