Carly is a single mom of a spunky, independent, and sassy 3 year old. Her days usually start with a cup, or two or three, of coffee, and end with a glass of red wine. During the day she works with individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities; a truly rewarding job that she has the utmost passion for. At night you'll find her building magna tile towers, splashing with dinosaurs in the bathtub, reading countless bedtime stories, and performing her superhero powers of warding off the boogey man! After "just one more bedtime story mommy" you can find her lost in a new book, jotting down her thoughts of the day, or binge watching her latest Netflix obsession!
