About two years ago, I took the first step in what was to become going full-blown expat and starting a family abroad. I decided to quit my full time job and hit the road, heading first to a place I fell in love with a few years before; Chile. Not long after I arrived here,…read more >
I came to Boba this summer to support blogging and international online advocacy for babywearing. But, my history with Boba is a longer, more personal one.
I met Robert and Elizabeth Antunovic, and their beautiful children, when I moved in next door to them on a small street in North Boulder a couple of years ago. I was working as the media and communications director for an international sustainability company. Naturally, we found ourselves talking about online engagement, media and public relations, and lots of sustainability issues, usually while hanging out in the grass with the kids, or sharing watermelon on the steps between our homes.
Babywearing, natural parenting and family travel are all things Iâ€™ve been inspired by and have learned a lot about through my friendship with the Antunovic family and working with the awesome Boba team while researching articles and more. Iâ€™m happy to be helping to spread the word about the benefits and mission of Boba Family and babywearing through my blog and PR work.
Born and raised in Lansing, Michigan, I lived in Boulder for 12 years before relocating to Chile in 2011. I live with my partner, Pablo and we have a new baby (our first), a darling daughter named Violeta. We live in a small beach community and I work freelance supporting socially and environmentally beneficial business projects through pr/communications work, express myself creatively through singing, writing, painting and ceramics, and am embracing the biggest, most important role of my life: being a mother.
On July 15, 2012 at 2:05 pm we welcomed into the world our darling daughter, Violeta. She arrived after two hours of hard labor and two and a half hours of pushing, all twenty four hours after premature rupture of the membranes (water breaking) the morning before. Hereâ€™s how it all went: On Saturday morning,…read more >

No talk of babywearing advocacy and the people and organizations working hard behind it would be complete without a generous nod to Babywearing International (BWI). This nonprofit organization works hard to organize and publicize babywearing events around the world, empowers lots of local babywearing chapters and its members, offers volunteer babywearing educator certification, hosts annual…read more >

We’ve all been there, or seen it, so many times (well, at least as many times as we’ve navigated security to get to our departure gate): families struggling with babies and toddlers, and all their stuff, namely the big bulky stroller that sometimes barely fits through xray and leaves mom or dad (or both) holding…read more >
