About Me


Hello there!  I’m Brandi, an African-American mom blogger, the mother of a fabulous 4-year-old, and newlywed wife  to an outrageously loving husband (read our incredible love story).  My daughter and I recently moved to Oakland, California from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where I had lived for almost 10 years. We love everything about the West Coast, from the farmer’s market to Disneyland, and it’s clear to me that we were absolutely destined to be California girls!

Who Is Brandi?

Nearly 4 years ago, I was a single mother living in Philadelphia and was looking for a way to both celebrate and  work through the challenges of being a new mom. I started Mama Knows It All to chronicle my own personal journey. This site has evolved, though, and now it is a resource for women all over the world who are looking for encouragement as they figure out what being a mom means for them. In addition to helpful tips and information, I share intimate stories about my life and my family to let other women know that regardless of their circumstances, they are not alone.

For nearly a decade, I was a Creative Educator, teaching playwriting and drama to youth all over Philadelphia. I  also wrote interdisciplinary curricula, and created the D.R.A.M.A. Queens program (Dream Realizing and Mission Accomplishing Queens) to encourage positive self-esteem in girls and women. Uplifting girls and women comes naturally to me, and I’ve carried that same D.R.A.M.A. Queens attitude into Mama Knows It All!

About The Blog

I had no idea when I first started this blog how much it would change my life! Since 2010, I have been fortunate to have opportunities open up for me like becoming a contributor on iVillage and Hello Beautiful, a brand ambassador for Stonyfield Yogurt, Hamilton Beach, and Little Remedies, and working with national brands like McDonald’s, Sears, Quaker Oats, and many more.

In addition to working with brands, I put my love of social media to  use in my role as a Community Relations Manager for shopper marketing agency, Collective Bias, co-founder of the blogger support network, Pushing Lovely, and social marketing consultant for a variety of start-ups, individuals and agencies.

I hope you’ll stick around and get to know me better!
