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 a whole other level when we sold everything we owned and downsized our life. On MovePlayMom we shared our incredible home renovation experience where we took readers along on our ninety-seventy-nine split level homes complete transformation in under 65 days! That was the start of sharing our little story here…

Since it’s inception, MovePlayMoms has evolved in so many ways. Readership became interested in everything from our home design, our lifestyle, our minimalist living, 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 in Calgary, AB. This unique Reggio inspired program offers high quality innovative early learning to over ninety-six children each school year and free workshops to parents. These workshops are not only for the Calgary community but are streamed online to support parents everywhere!

In Addition to my business, I am an early learning consultant, do speaking engagements and workshops for educators and parents and am co-authoring a book that is focused on mom entrepreneurs, to be released in October 2019. 

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 journey for friends and family and share how we decided to embrace a more minimal and simple lifestyle. Readership grew and over time they became much more interested in my personal story and wanted to hear about minimalist living, being a mom of a blended family, the mompreneur life, child development, how I manage work-life balance, and parenting tips.

Today MovePlayMom has grown into a place to share all of the above!

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