Welcome, so glad you found our little spot!

MovePlayMom was first created to document my family’s journey towards simpler living. In 2017 we decided to take minimalist living to another level after we sold everything we owned and downsized our life and home. On MovePlayMom we shared our incredible home renovation experience, where we took readers along on our 1979 split level home transformation in under 65 days! 

Since it’s inception, MovePlayMom has evolved in so many ways. Readers became very interested in home design, lifestyle tips, our minimalist living, why we choose experiences over things, parenting and more. 

What makes me qualified to share?

My education and experiences; I graduated from college with a double major in Liberal Arts and Women Studies in 1999. I also completed my BA in Child Studies and Development in 2002 and went on to complete some graduate courses in Educational Studies in 2007. 

In addition to blogging, I am also an entrepreneur & teacher! I founded and co-own AKIDEMY Preschool in 2014 – One of the best preschools in Alberta. This unique Reggio inspired program offers high quality, innovative early learning to over ninety-six children each school year. Akidemy also offers free workshops to parents. These workshops are not only for the Calgary community but are streamed online to support parents everywhere! You can find more information about that by visiting the AKIDEMY website.

I am an early learning consultant, child development expert and am available for speaking engagements and workshops for educators and parents. I am also co-authoring a book that is focused on mom entrepreneurs, to be released in March 2020. 

What’s Next For MovePlayMom

I started this blog because I wanted to share my family’s story, I wasn’t quite sure how my posts would go. I just wanted to document our story for friends and family. Readership grew and since have become interested in my personal experience living as a minimalist, being a mom of a blended family, mompreneur life, child development, how I manage work-life balance, and parenting tips. ALL THE THINGS!

MovePlayMom is a lifestyle blog that supports and inspires mom’s and dad’s to design the life they want to live.
