Hi! I’m Brandi, the mother of a fabulous preschooler, living in Northern California. Life has taken me on tons of adventures, and all around the world. When I had my daughter, Ayva, I became a new person, and the world became ten times more interesting with a little on in tow!
Nearly 3 years ago, I decided that I needed to put everything that I know into one place, so I started this blog. Mama Knows It All chronicles my life as a single, working mom with an energetic, highly lovable and super adorable toddler daughter. I share my ups and downs, things that we like, things that we do, all in the hopes of inspiring others to enjoy their parenting journeys. You can also find me knowing it all as an iVillage iVoice reporter, working as the Community Manager at Collective Bias, and running social media campaigns for different brands and organizations.
In addition to being a Mom and blogging, I was an Out of School Time Educator for a decade, 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. It’s no wonder that after working to uplift girls for nearly a decade that my first child would be born a Princess!
I’m having the most fun of my life…and facing the biggest challenges of my life as a single mom, but I believe with lots of love, and LOTS of hard work, both Ayva and I will bloom! In fact, just recently, I became engaged, and now Ayva and I are blossoming into our new life with our favorite guy! Seriously, folks, it just keeps getting better and better. Hang around for some inspiration, and share YOUR story! I love getting to know people!
Peace and blessings,
