Hi! Welcome to Mom Endeavors! I’m so happy to welcome you to our home on the internet! Mom Endeavors was launched in 2010 as a creative outlet for me and a place to share the various ideas, tips, tricks, and tidbits learned along the way from my many everyday mom endeavors. Though the site has evolved over the years, creativity and family-friendliness have remained at the heart of everything shared here. It’s my hope that the site will be a source of creative inspiration for many of the endeavors we find ourselves undertaking, like cooking, celebrating, creating, traveling with kids, and more! So, you’ll find a variety of recipes, home DIY projects, party ideas, fun crafts, family travel ideas, and family entertainment, with some homemaking tips, parenting topics, and other miscellaneous interests occasionally smattered in.

I was born in the Midwest, but grew up in sunny Phoenix, Arizona. Creative endeavors like art, music, and theater were a big part of my childhood and teenage years. My mom & grandmas were very influential in sparking creative interests for me in crafting, cooking, and art. And, thankfully my dad shared his musical talents with me – where I went on to play a variety of instruments, leading to do different music group trips to Europe. On that first multi-country tour of Europe (with the Arizona Ambassadors of Music), the travel bug bit and I’ve never looked back! I’ll be adding country #13 to my list this year!
I went on scholarship out-of-state to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for college, where I was a member of the Cornhusker Marching Band all four years. I met my husband my freshman year there and we’ve been together ever since! After graduating with a degree in Psychology (with Biology minor), my husband and I ended up at the University of Arizona in Tucson for graduate school. I earned a Master’s Degree in Education and went on to teach jr. high science and high school biology for the next 7 years. During that time, a post-doctoral placement for my husband landed us back in Phoenix. We are now the proud parents of 3 young boys (born in 2007, 2010, and 2012) that certainly keep us on our toes. After the birth of baby #2, I decided to hang up my biology teacher lab coat to be able to spend more time my boys. A few months later, this site was born – and what a crazy ride it’s been! What started as my creative outlet has turned into my full-time job as a content creator and digital influencer– and it’s a job that I truly adore! So I’m thrilled to have you here!
