About Melissa

melissa1 150x150 About MelissaHi. I’m Melissa.  A full time hard working mom of 3 girls ages 10, 11 and 13.  My life is crazy busy.   I work way over 40 hours a week, drink way too much coffee and spend far too much time on the soccer fields.  Though I love my life and wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Starting this blog and website was one of the most exciting things I’ve ever done.  I knew it would be a journey… both a tremendous learning experience and a way to get back to what I love – to write.

I have been working in the fast-paced world of IT for about 20 years now.  However, my background and my education is in Communications and Journalism. I believe this is what drove me to back to my roots – my love to write and express my opinion.   Like many of you, my day generally starts at 5:30 AM and on a typical day I generally don’t sit still until after 9 pm. I have a type A personality and care way too much about stupid stuff like cleaning the house and doing laundry. I love to be with my family and friends. I love to laugh.  I love to shop and have a crazy, silly obsession with shoes and cosmetics.

Through Girliemom, I have been able to work with some exciting brands, PR and Marketing companies, Authors and fellow bloggers.  I feel tremendous joy in knowing that I am helping every day to bring new products to market and in helping businesses and brands thrive thru our Social Media Offerings. 

Product Reviews here at Girliemom have really taken off.  Our readers tell us they love and appreciate our selection of products and in our honest and reliable reviews.  Did you know 56% of online shoppers are women!*

Why the name Girliemom?

Most people ask me why I named the website “Girliemom” to which I reply, “I have 3 girls – what the hell else would I call it!”    Girliemom launched in 2010 off an idea and desire to document my journey as a full time working mother  – and with credit card in hand I purchased the Girliemom domain.  The rest is history.   I never would have thought that through this blog I would meet so many interesting people, learn so much from many of you and holy smokes even found myself on TV a result of something I wrote!     I have learned just how much power there is to our words.

I want to stay in touch with you.
