Hi! I’m Courtney, the editor of The Chirping Moms. I’m Mom to Margaret (Maggie), Alexandra (Alex) and Thomas (Tommy) and John (Miles) and wife to Tom. I was born & raised in NJ. I moved around for 10 years, but I’m back to raise my kids here. I went to college at Villanova in PA & shortly after graduation moved to the great city of Chicago. This is where I met Tom, a Jersey native himself. After a few more years in Chicago we bought our first house together in North Carolina. That’s where our little southern belle, Maggie was born. On Maggie’s 1st birthday, Tom accepted a new job in NYC, so we moved home to NJ right before Alex was born.
Before becoming a Mom, I worked in sales. I have also worked in fundraising & special events for a non-profit. I am a woman of a million ideas: constantly coming up with new business ideas, inventions & careers. Being a Mom is a wonderful adventure. Getting the chance to write about it & share some of the fun by blogging is turning out to be a great experience!
Last but not least, traveling is one of my favorite things (even with kids!). You can follow along with our travel adventures on Instagram at @travelwewill.
