Deva Dalporto: The Accidental Influencer

 

Deva Dalporto is one of the nicest human beings I’ve ever met. This beautiful, smart woman is an actress, a writer, a painter, a mom, and an accidental influencer. She does them all so damn well too. She created a parody video in 2013 that went viral and continues to create hilarious, relevant content that resonates with parents across the globe. Check her out everywhere: @mylifesuckers. She built her brand on love, humor, authenticity, and her truths. I met her in college and was a goner from the get-go. You’ll see what I mean. She’s a complete delight. No wonder the world wants more from her.

Listen to the podcast here:

Deva Dalporto: The Accidental Influencer

Welcome to my show that I haven’t done since March 2020. You are my comeback.

It’s hilarious considering I’m the mom who’s representing like, “Moms can’t do this.”

I can’t do this. I haven’t done it for a while and you have inspired me. I have to go to our backstory together but I find you inspiring. I want to share with everyone else all the amazing things that you’ve done. I’ve been researching you. I’m finding out and seeing things that I didn’t even get to see over the years. I feel like I’m a major Deva fan girl.

I’ve always been a major Jenny fangirl and you know that.

Welcome, Deva Dalporto. She is my friend. We met in college. We were doing a year abroad and it was love at first sight for me. Our birthdays are three days apart and we were both wanting to be actresses studying acting. Deva is an actor and a writer. Your career took a surprising and awesome plot twist into being a content creator starting with viral videos. Is that right?

I always say I’m the world’s oldest mommy YouTuber.

You’re the pioneer pre-TikTok. Everyone is doing it but you were ahead of the curve. One of the things that I love most about your story is that it started from a place of being hard. At one point, you were the sole earner for your family of writing. Is that right?

Yes.

That’s hard and you got sick.

I wanted to be an actress when we met doing a shoot here, Shakespeare in London, except you had the beautiful accent and I sounded like an American hick. After college, I moved to LA and I tried to follow my dreams and I found it was constant no, “You’re too tall and not pretty enough.” I remember once being in a room with producers and one of them said, “She’s funny.” The other one said, “The part is a model and she’s not pretty enough,” right in front of your face.

It’s nice to hear. It’s a confidence booster, empowering and amazing.

At that point, I kept hearing, “No.” I had met a boy, had a kid, and went to go shoot a small bit part in a movie after she was born. I forgot my pump at home. I was two hours away. The baby was home screaming because she didn’t take a bottle. I was on set screaming because I forgot my pump. I was leaking all over my costume. It was the most stressful thing ever. I was like, “I can’t do this. I quit.” I became a mommy. I started writing about how hard it was because motherhood was not natural for me.

It’s difficult. I was sleepless, miserable, depressed and exhausted. I started writing about it in a funny way. I saw an ad for a job looking for moms who write. I was like, “I’m a mom. I’ve been writing.” I sent in some of my funny articles about leaky boobs, motherhood and all this stuff. It turns out it was for Nickelodeon. I got a job writing for their website. I worked there for seven years writing about ear infections but make it funny. I loved my job. It was hard balancing, at that point, two kids and having this but it was a flex job.

During your Nickelodeon tenure, you had your second child. You’re writing with two kids. Whoever said that two is easier than one are all liars.

Everyone lies. Otherwise, we would never do that.

You’re writing, and was your husband in between jobs?

Everything in this world at the moment is polarizing. Share on X

He had a great job that moved us out to California, and then he left that job. He was trying to start his own company but it was right during the Great Recession in 2009. It was bad timing. We were scraping it together. Writers don’t get paid the best. We were living on my salary and I was burning the candle on both ends with two kids and trying to work as much as possible. I started to feel run down. It was my husband who finally said to me, “Something is wrong with you.” I said, “No. I’m a working mom of two. We all feel like this. We’re all exhausted.” He pushed me to go to the doctor. I went, and it turns out I had Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.

It sounds cool. If you’re going to get one, it has the best name. Can I ask what your symptoms were?

You know in your first trimester when you’re tired that you can barely make it through the day, I was that level of exhausted every day. My hair was falling out in massive clumps. I had strange rashes all over my body and massive brain fog. I would get these weird muscle twitches that felt there were things under my skin. I had dry skin. It was miserable. It was like something was wrong with me.

How old were your kids at this point?

They were 2 and 5.

Intense child carriers right there.

Intense childcare years and I was burnt out. I had no other choice but to go on medical leave from my beloved job in Nickelodeon. I spiraled into a deep depression because, for me, creating, writing and whatever form it takes, acting is important. Without it, I’m unhappy. I was also getting older and I felt like my dreams would never come true. I was going to spend the rest of my days folding tiny pairs of underwear.

I spent some time with a friend of mine. She also has two kids and she’s an actor. She was saying she spends her day going back and forth between, “I’m much more than this. I love this. I want to be there for every second of folding, tiny underwear.”

Isn’t that a huge motherhood dilemma? That nails it. It’s simultaneously like, “This is hard. Please get me out of this. I love this so much. I want to do this.”

This is the best. It’s big bipolar swings. You’re on medical leave. It isn’t an identity crisis, it would be for me. You don’t have a job, you’re not doing it, you’re sick and you have two young kids.

I can barely make it through the day. I started to get more depressed and miserable. With Hashimoto’s, you never get healed or totally better but to improve, it takes a long time to find the right dosage, find the right diet and all of these things. I deep-dived into trying to get myself well. During this time, my husband bought me a video camera and he said, “Remember your dreams. You want it to be an actress. Go do it.” I was like, “You’re pressuring me.” I did not see it as a sweet thing. I saw it as pressure like, “On top of everything, you want me to fulfill my dreams.” The camera is out in the corner abandoned.

Is this an old school video camera? What year is this?

This was 2013 and it was a Sony. I can’t even remember but it was a camcorder kind. I remember when I made my first videos, I was like, “Why do mine look so bly and everyone else’s is juicy and vibrant?” I realized I had this horrible camera.

I love your husband who did that and planted the seed for everything that was to come. I didn’t realize that was 2013, which isn’t even that long ago. What you’ve done in seven years is amazing. You were like, “I hate my husband F you. The camera is sitting in the corner, I’ve got enough going on.”

One day, we were at the park and the kids were running around like maniacs. That song by Ylvis, The Fox, was going viral. I thought, “Wouldn’t it be hilarious to do a version of this? What do the kids say?” I ran home. I hid in the closet and my family is downstairs, screaming like, “What’s for dinner?” I wrote out the lyrics and then finally unpacked the camera. My husband and I taught ourselves how to use the camera, edit a video on iMovie and invited over our good friends, the Haggerty’s. I called her up and I was like, “Wear black and white, and show up at my house at noon.” She was game. We shot this ridiculous video and it was fun. We decided to put it on YouTube because we have friends and family all over the world like everyone. We wanted my husband’s parents in West Virginia to see it and our friends back in New York. It went viral which was a total shock.

It must be the most fun. Were you shocked every second when you saw the numbers taking up?

Seeing the numbers ticking up was wild. It was gaining tens of thousands every few minutes and it got three million views in the first 24 hours. I have to say like, “This is exciting. There’s this dark side to going viral.” I didn’t mean to be a YouTuber or make videos for public consumption. I remember standing alone in my kitchen getting death threats, rape threats and all these terrible threats.

Accidental Influencer: If you do what you love, as long as it’s authentic and true, the money, success, and everything else will follow.

 

Why?

I’m the reason people shoot school children and hate Americans. It’s a crazy backlash along with the good. There was so much good.

Your videos are sweet and fun that I would never have expected that.

The humor is benign. It was shocking.

Everything in this world at the moment is polarizing and there’s always going to be that.

It was a good introduction for me. It’s throwing me right into the fire of what this life as an online creator was going to be like because there’s the great side and connecting. I have many messages from women over the years saying, “Thank you. You made me feel less crazy and alone. You saved me from depression. All this stuff.” The other side is like, “You are the reason people hated Americans.”

That was your first fun, little foray into, “I feel inspired to do something,” that was massive, huge, and kicked off the whole transition that you’ve made.

At that point, I didn’t know that you could be a video creator.

Can I be posh and ask from a business perspective? When something goes viral, do you then monetize with YouTube? Can you do that or you missed the boat because you didn’t know it was going to go viral? How does that work?

I think you have to have a certain number of subscribers in order to monetize on YouTube but I might be wrong about that. For me, I didn’t make a dime. The first 40 million views, I didn’t make a dime. Part of it was because I was doing a parody. The original creator or musician would claim the rights. They would make all the money. I squeaked about it a little bit and I got a reputation at YouTube. I had a meeting with the head of content. At that point, I don’t remember if it was 100 million views. He’s like, “You’ve made no money off of this.” I said, “Not a dime.” They now have a policy and I’m not going to take full credit. Now, it’s a rev share. YouTube takes a big cut, the original writer, songwriter, artists take a cut and then you get a little tiny smidgen but that’s not where people like me make most of our money. We make it from sponsors.

That gets you the platform. People will know and love you. That is also valuable.

In order to get sponsors, you have to initially do it. I did it because I was having fun and I loved it. I didn’t even know that it could be a career. I didn’t know people could subscribe to a YouTube channel so I never got subscribers.

You are one of the first. Few people that I knew were doing it in 2013.

I didn’t know any other mommy is doing this. I had no mentors or no one to teach me. It was a very slow laborious process to teach myself. At that point in time, it wasn’t a business. There was no such thing as an influencer or that kind of thing.

What does the kid say with the first video? How long after were you inspired or wanted to try it again?

Had I known then what I know now, I should have hit the ground running and done another one right away. Successful YouTubers upload multiple times a week or at least once a week and they have a schedule and everything. I had no idea about any of this. It was about six weeks later, I made another parody called the Let It Go Mom Parody. To survive, we do have to let it go. That one went viral. It ended up in People Magazine. It was all over that news.

That was number two. Your second try was also a huge hit.

Know that you're enough just as you are. Share on X

I might’ve made a little sketch video in between the two if my timeline is correct. It might be the screamer, which was about having a device that could scream at your kids for you so you didn’t have to be the bad guy.

Time to hit it out of the park again.

I started making them every once in a while. About a year in, I was approached by my first sponsor who I still work with called Responsibility.org. They’re an alcohol education, substance education company. They teach parents how to talk to our children about these things. They approached me and said, “Can you make a funny video on anti-drinking and driving?” I was like, “I can’t do that.” I thought about it. We finally settled on doing a jingle bells parody called The Holidays Are Hell. It’s about all the stress around the holidays and how that then leads you to perhaps drink more. If that happens, you should not drive home and modeling good behavior for your children.

That’s something you believe and something vital. We all need those messages. Was that your first sponsor?

That was my first sponsor, and I’m still working with them.

Was your blog My Life Suckers simultaneously created with the videos?

When the video started going viral, I was like, “I need a name.” I always called my kids my life suckers. Looking back, I wish that was not the name. Now that they’re older, they’re sucking the life out of me in a different way. I needed a name and I needed somewhere for all these people to find me. I came from a writing background at Nickelodeon and their website. I understood having a website where people came to. I didn’t understand at that time that your YouTube channel could be the place where people came to.

Most people didn’t know at that point. It’s all evolved.

I started the blog and I started writing some posts and articles on there and then mixing it up with the videos.

You’ve got your first sponsor, you have your two huge first videos and then it went from there. Many more videos to come and I’ve seen lots of cool sponsors.

We ended up 75 times going viral, not counting memes and the images at 450 million views later. We got to work with incredible sponsors like Clorox, Twizzlers, Clinique, Frito Lay and Cheerios. I’ve developed into this business. I had a full-time employee and a part-time employee who shot the videos and it was like Boss Mom. It was cool and fun, and then this pandemic.

Before we move to that, I want to say that from getting sick and having your husband buy you a video camera, you became an accidental influencer. A successful one who built an incredible business from something that you did for fun one day. I love stories that. They’re the best.

First of all, I want to steal accidental influencer for the title of my autobiography.

What happened? Out of nowhere, it was a blizzard.

The reason why is because I approached it from that place. I was only doing it as a personal creative outlet. This sounds cheesy but I was speaking my truth.

That sounds not cheesy to me. That sounds right.

It was my pain points that I was making fun of and poking fun at myself. It was amazing when I realized I wasn’t the only one feeling like this and there were millions of other moms, dads and people like feeling that around the world.

Accidental Influencer: We can be middle-aged and hopeful.

 

It’s true. I love the tone that you have, not because you’re my friend and I love you, but that’s how I felt about motherhood “This is hard, I’m disgusting, I’m dirty and there’s nothing glamorous about this.” The women looking perfect with the hair and everything is gorgeous was not my experience of it. It was the messiest, hard, exhausting and many times infuriating experience. You walked the line exactly right of adoring your children and loving being a mom. Throughout all of it, I never felt like you hated being a mom. Sometimes, I hear petty criticisms, not of you, but of other people like, “You don’t have kids if you feel that way.” I hate that. I do feel that way half the time.

I do hope and feel that my love for them was always the bedrock of all the content. It was more a commentary on me as a person and me falling apart. Me maybe not living up to the expectations I had of myself and what you’re saying about that perfect mom with her hair and getting her abs back in four months and all that stuff. You’re inundated with that when you’re a new mother and then it can make you feel horrible about yourself. People are like, “What’s wrong with me? I have yogurt on my pants. I haven’t showered in a week. I’m disgusting but I love my kids and I’m doing my best. Is she a better mom than I am because her kids are all wearing matching white outfits without stains on them?”

She never seems to be upset or complaining ever. One of the most beautiful stories, and there have been so many, was the love letters that you and your daughter wrote each other, and that was on Good Morning America.

A friend of mine who’s a blogger, Jen Mann, who has a blog called People I Want To Punch In The Throat, right after my first video went viral, she contacted me and invited me to submit an essay for an anthology she was putting together essays. It was called I Just Want To Be Alone. It was an essay about your spouse. Jen invited me to be in that anthology. It was cool and fun to be a part of this writerly blogger group. She brought me into that world. Those letters that my daughter and I wrote to each other were for a future anthology that she put together. We wrote these letters, You Are Enough. I initially wrote a letter to my twin daughter who was struggling as all twin teens saying, “You’re enough as you are.” She said to me, “Mommy, you do the same thing. I want you to know you’re enough as you are.” We wrote these letters to one another and then I decided to make a video for each letter. That was picked up by Good Morning America and others.

I love that project. Some of the stories that you’ve told made me think. I saw your Today Show about checking in with your kids. Another one that made me cry was when your son lost his last baby tooth which I never thought about. You posted something on Instagram about how he wanted you to talk about the Tooth Fairy and it was going to be the last time of the Tooth Fairy game.

We’ve been able to keep the magic alive in this house, and I will never admit to anything. We still believe in the Tooth Fairy and Santa and all that stuff. It was a sad moment because the Tooth Fairy had been coming for so long. She always leaves these letters and she left this beautiful letter about how it was the last time. He got into some logistics and he was like, “Is she an inch tall? Can she carry all these teeth?”

That one made me teary because I never thought about it. You’re like, “It means so much to us.” They’re older and who knows whatever they think but it’s something that’s a big deal for them too and it was beautiful.

You don’t realize that there are going to be all of these lasts. There are many firsts but there are also many lasts. The last time you picked up your kid because, at a certain rate, they’re too heavy.

The pandemic hits the entire world, the biggest thing. It’s rocked everyone on this planet. I watched the Today Show. I didn’t know the number, but 800,000 women have taken a step back from the workforce to help with their kids, be at home, help with homeschooling, Zoom school and whatever it is. How has it affected your company?

The pandemic has been hard for many of us. It has hit women and mothers even harder. Many of us have decided to leave the workforce temporarily. We’re all hoping this is temporary, but we hit a certain point where you can’t do it all. You can’t have these kids at home doing distance learning, trying to get on the Zooms, trying to get online, checking to make sure they’re doing their work, keep the house from exploding and blowing up which is the bottom low-level priority but also important not to have cockroaches inside.

Between that and then the mental stress of it, I hit a point where I was like, “I need to take a step back.” I went from a place with two employees making three videos a week down to me and occasionally putting out a video. It’s sad but I also felt like my kids need me. My husband has a crazy job and I’m the one who has the flexibility to be able to step back. That’s what I’m doing. One time, I have nine sponsored projects going at once, plus the three other content videos. My husband wasn’t working at that point, so he stepped in. It’s a give and take.

You guys have always been a special team. In terms of supporting one another, James and whoever has the most work and responsibility at the moment, the other one steps in, which is wonderful.

We’ve done a good job of that. I’m still going to take more credit.

I never doubt that for a second.

He’s been incredibly supportive of my dreams. None of this would have happened if not for him.

He got the video camera that made you mad. I hope that when things go back to a new normal, that you are going to do videos again because they’re good. I love them. Do you still write for your blog?

I do still write. The whole Today Show thing came about because I wrote a post called The Pandemic Is Killing My Career. Once again, it’s a moment of not realizing that something I was going through that so many other people would resonate with. I posted it, put it out there and the Today Show contacted me. I didn’t realize that many of us were in the same boat. Throughout my journey of being a mother, something has got to give. People who say that they have it all, it’s baloney. The thing that always gave was me and my health. I didn’t exercise, sleep well, take care of myself and that was the thing. As I’m getting older, I’m realizing that I can’t afford to not take care of myself anymore. Something else has to give and it’s a give and take in life. You can’t have it all.

The older we get, the more we can't afford to not take care of ourselves anymore. Share on X

Some cracks appear, especially with health. That is not something to ignore, to make light up or feel sweep under the rug. With you, this was all born from something, that was organic, inspired, your dreams, your truth, it happened and it was successful. That’s going to come back like you wrote this post saying The Pandemic is Killing My Career. Everybody feels you on that. Whatever is next is going to come naturally to you. I want more videos, I do love them. Have you done a TikTok?

I started a TikTok and I’m having so much fun over there.

What’s your TikTok name? Is it My Life Suckers?

It’s @MyLifeSuckers or Deva Dalporto. I keep getting such a great response over there. I posted a video that we had done and it’s called New Mom. It’s my assistant who was fully pregnant, she’s saying, “I can’t wait to meet her. What’s it like to be a mom?” I say, “Let me show you.” It opens with me barfing all over her.

I have to watch that. I am not on TikTok. I’ve got to get on there. My husband shows me some great videos. I’ve watched a lot of the dancing ones. The dances are unbelievable.

You would be fantastic at that. I practiced for many hours to try and do the Renegade Lottery dance. I still could not get it, but it’s my first TikTok video. You can see me behind a swarm of children desperately trying to keep up.

I have to get on there. Does your daughter do TikTok videos?

The strange thing about growing up with a mom who does social media is my children have zero interest in social media. We did have a rule in our house. We are a Wait Until 8th family for the phone. You can’t have social media until 9th grade. Now that she’s in 9th grade, I’m like, “Let’s get you an Instagram.” She’s like, “I don’t want it. It looks like stress and pressure.”

That is the coolest thing. We’ll talk about Wait Until 8th. I didn’t even know. At eight, do they have phones?

It’s 8th grade.

Through your work, you have an agent and you’re writing scripts. You are an inspiring story and aspirational, definitely for me, of doing what you love and look at what happened.

If you do what you love, the money and success, everything will follow as long as it’s authentic and true.

If any mom wants to follow you, they can be on Instagram. You’re @MyLifeSuckers, right?

Yes. I’m @MyLifeSuckers everywhere in TikTok, Instagram and Facebook and MyLifeSuckers.com.

Do you remember that when we were in London when we first met, we bought a dress together and shared the dress?

Yes, but you didn’t have to wear a bra in the dress because you had such perky boobs. I had to wear a bra.

Your boobs were amazing. At that time, we’re like, “This dress is so beautiful and we should share it.” We would have different days that we wore it. It was the best. It makes me feel nostalgic for that time when I see your face and I remember that. We’re studying Shakespeare in London.

GA 34 | Accidental Influencer
Accidental Influencer: You can fulfill your dreams at any age. You can have new dreams and continue to evolve and succeed. You’re never too old.

 

We were young and hopeful.

Now, we can be middle-aged and hopeful.

That is something that I want to say when I was sad before all this happened, feeling like, “I was in my 30s. I was getting older. My dreams weren’t happening. Nothing had happened to me.” I was so frustrated and feeling like everyone pops when they’re 21 and 22. I’m struggling and to see that there is no age limit on fulfilling your dreams. You can fulfill your dreams in your 20s, 30s, 40s, or 50s. I truly believe it. You can have new dreams, you can continue to evolve and succeed. You’re never too old.

I love hearing and witnessing it. 2013 was a few years ago. It was something that happened. As you said, it wasn’t in your twenties that your star was on the rise. Another important thing to realize that you’re good at articulating is that your dreams do shift and change depending on where you are in your life. As you said about My Life Suckers. At that time, that was the right title and it feels like that. As they move on, your kids grow up, you look back and the perspective is different.

I’m proud of the work I’ve done with My Life Suckers. I love the videos in there and they capture these little moments in time. I’m not there for many of those moments. My kids have grown up. I have grown, hopefully.

Another thing I love about your work is that it’s a family affair. Your husband, who has a big job and a high-pressure job, works all the time, is in some of the videos, your kids participate and they seem fully game and good sports about it. Do you have to force them or are they into it?

They have an option whether to join or not. There will be some videos where my mom will call and be like, “How come she wasn’t in the video?” I’m like, “She wasn’t in the mood.” They also have full approval over anything that’s posted like any photos of them or anything. My husband was game and in the first videos, he went mega-viral on Facebook. It was thirteen million views on this video of him looking in a cabinet for raisins.

I saw that one, the Male Pattern Blindness. It’s accurate.

He went to a meeting at some big bank or something. Someone walked into the room and said, “I am sorry, this is weird but were you in a video?” He came on me and he’s like, “I retire. I am not doing this.” He keeps sneaking at them.

That’s sweet and cute. I love that part of it. What a good guy.

He’s a good sport. He’s been poked fun of a lot.

It’s because he has much more serious jobs. I like that the person recognized him from your videos. On your Instagram, you promote a lot of other great and hilarious bloggers about parenting like Parent blogs. Is that correct or are their account?

Back to Jen Mann when I first met her, she believes that all boats rise together. It’s important for people, women and mom entrepreneurs to support one another. I would do a lot of shout-outs to other people so that they can get discovered as well.

I’ve seen a few of those accounts, they’re funny and I love that. You’re the best. I love you for being my first guest back. I can’t wait to see what you do next. It’s going to be awesome. I know it.

Thank you. I’m happy that you’re back to the show. Thank you for having me on. We’re going to be okay. We need to get through this.

You said that on the Today Show, “The four moms that were on, they got to each say what their takeaway was. What do you want to say to everybody?” Yours was, “We’re going to be okay.” I thought that was real and right. It’s a good thing to remember and also to also check in with your kids. At least for me, that was a nice thing to hear because a lot of times, it’s about me, “This is hard. I’m home with my kids all the time. I don’t like Zoom school. What am I doing?” It’s hard for them too. They used to have a life. Right now, it’s on hold.

This pandemic is the hardest on the kids and the grandparents. We’re Gen X. We’re used to staying at home. We don’t care.

There is no age limit on fulfilling your dreams. Share on X

Did you read that article that Gen X is the best at this because we’re latchkey kids, always left home alone, eat whatever, cereal for dinner? We are crushing how to act in a pandemic. The other people are not.

We are quarantine queens.

My mother is not. My mom has a mask pulled on the nose, I’m not going to get it because I washed my hands.

That generation is bad. My mom called me, “I hugged a friend inside the other day but we were both wearing masks.” I was like, “Mother, no.”

I have another child who’s on the opposite end of the age spectrum and it’s a lot. Deva, thank you. Everybody should follow you at MyLifeSuckers.com, Instagram, TikTok and Facebook.

I love you.

I love you. Bye.

About Deva Dalporto

GA 34 | Accidental Influencer

I’m a mom muddling through life with my two adorable life suckers and my life-sucking husband. I was a Senior Editor for Nickelodeon’s parenting website for 6 years where I wrote about snot and ear infections. And then I got a lovely (and by lovely, I mean horrible) autoimmune disorder called Hashimoto’s. So I left my job. Got healthy. Got bored. And then my husband bought me a video camera.

After cursing him for two months straight for spending so much money on it, I finally used it. I created my first video What Does the Kid Say for fun. The video went viral which was shocking and intense and insane and amazing. A few months later I made a second video and went viral again with my Let It Go – Mom Parody. And then again and again and again. I’ve “gone viral” now over a hundred times and my videos have garnered over 350 million views. CRAZY!!!!! My videos have been featured on The Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, ABC, NBC, Fox, Yahoo’s homepage and many, many more. NBC called me the “Weird Al of YouTube Moms” which is pretty much the best compliment ever. You can check out all the coverage of my work on my press page.

MyLifeSuckers is brand friendly, and we’ve been lucky enough to have worked with some of the best brands in the world! This journey has also lead to speaking engagements at YouTube, Google, media agencies, conferences such as BlogHer, Mom 2 and more! It’s been a crazy ride. And I am so grateful.

Check out my parodies and funny mom videos on my YouTube channel and Facebook page!

Thanks so much for being here and for joining me on this crazy, amazing journey! We can muddle along together. And be warned, I like to write and make videos with a sense of humor because I like to laugh at the insanity of life, so please don’t take me too seriously. My kids aren’t always total life suckers.
