What I love most about working for Boba as a company is their amazing commitment to excellent, generous service. I donâ€™t work in the customer service department, but staying keyed in to all of our fans on social media often reaffirms what I already know about the Boba team and Bobaâ€™s company policies: they rock.…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.
Since starting my blogging adventures with Boba (the baby carrier family company, that is) last summer, Iâ€™ve been sort of fascinated with the returns on my once-in-a-while internet searches for â€śBobaâ€ť. Many of you will already know, some of you may not, that searches on Twitter, Youtube, Facebook, Pinterest, Google, and the like return a…read more >

At sixteen weeks pregnant to date, I’m feeling my baby move a bit and getting a little more horizontal in the belly region. We’ve interviewed a great doula, are considering midwife-assisted vs. unassisted birth, and starting to talk about the stuff we might need before the baby arrives. In pondering baby shower registries and requests…read more >
As my partner and I prepare for the arrival of our first child (due in July), itâ€™s becoming more and more apparent that our preparation requires a little preparation of others, namely my partnerâ€™s Chilean family. While there are a few very small pockets of families who practice a natural parenting style (i.e. attachment…read more >
