Publisher, editor-in-chief, doula and mom of three, Kristi is one busy momma! After eight years of working as a doula with new and expectant mommas, Kristi launched The Moms Magazine for the moms in Central Florida. The addition of Orlando Moms Blog three years later was a no-brainer as there was a HUGE need for a local blog. Kristi’s connection with the moms of Orlando goes deep. One chat with Kristi and you’ll think of her as your new best friend.
Elaine grew up in Stuart, a small South Florida beach town, and moved to Orlando in 2005 to attend UCF. She loved it so much that she spent five years there earning degrees in Language Arts Education and English Literature with a minor in writing. After teaching high school for four years, she decided to put those writing classes to use and work as a writer and editor, as well as a mom to her daughter born in 2014. She spends every extra minute with her husband enjoying everything downtown Orlando has to offer and taking turns chasing their wily daughter.

Social Media Coordinator
Anne Marie is a Pittsburgher at heart who just relocated to Orlando during the summer of 2015. A life-long lover of winter and snow, Anne Marie has learned to worship the sun and sand that Florida has to offer. She got her BA in theatre from Cleveland State University by way of West Liberty University where she met her husband Bill of almost 9 years during her first production. They have 3 elementary age kids (Liam, Eliza-Beth, and London) who have more energy than the Energizer Bunny. They keep Anne Marie on her toes while she works from home as the blogger/owner of Crunchy, Crafty, and Highly Caffeinated, podcaster at Universe Box, and the new Secretary of the school PTA. During her “free time” (aka when she should be doing laundry or scrubbing toilets) Anne Marie can be found with a cocktail in her hand, binge watching a new show on TV.
