Our team keeps expanding, and we have some amazing talent that’s behind the scenes! Together, this group of ladies are very determined and motivated to build a connected community through the San Diego Moms Blog!
Jenna is the owner and founder of the San Diego Moms Blog. Her love for San Diego stems from being born and raised here. By chance, her family moved to Colorado Springs, and that is how she found out about the City Moms Blog Network. She applied to write for the Colorado Springs Moms Blog and became part of the team for a short year.
Coming back to San Diego was exciting, and she knew she had to grow the community of San Diego through the San Diego Moms Blog. As a fire wife, homeschooling mom, and all around CEO of the house, Jenna likes to take some time to herself and teach fitness classes on the side. As her main passion for over 3 years, Insanity and Zumba top the list as her favorites.

Elisabeth just recently became a mama in November of 2015! Her little man came into this world with a bang and boy has he become a LIFE CHANGER! Since then she resigned from her full-time gig as a Marketing Coordinator, to stay home with her little guy and hustle her freelance skills. Before Bubby was born, you could find Elisabeth at a local art show, hiking, painting, walking at a charity event or at a baseball game with her hubby. These days she is just trying to figure out how to continue to live out her passions, while being the best mommy she can be.
You can find out more about Elisabeth on her personal blog, http://www.Breasties.org.

You may find Felicia out in nature with the thoughts of adventure in her head, her family in tow and camera ready to aim, curled up on the couch with a good book, dancing around her house to her favorite vinyl, or busting out an art project or two with anyone willing to humor her. Lucky to have friend and fellow contributor Melanie to indulge in the slightest of DIY addictions, best to say Felicia is a long time artist at heart. She also totes a degree in Behavioral Science, with dreams of art therapy for children. She is a native to San Diego with only a short move to Chicago and back. She is happily married to her high school sweetheart, who happens to be a Chicago native (don’t ask how football season is in their home, lol), together they parent one crazy miracle of a daughter. Rounding out their family picture is their adopted fur-baby, Chewbacca…needless to say Felicia and child wear “Nerd” like a badge of honor.
