I don’t know about you but I understood the playground… be nice, share the swings and don’t throw sand.  It was what happened after we left the playground that confused me. Especially as my oldest approached the teen years!  That’s why I’ve retooled Beyond the Park .

I wanted to 425offer savvy parents (like us) with teens a reliable place to hear about the best products, apps, and services to keep them healthy and out of trouble.

I am a New York City transplant; in fact I am a 6th generation city girl. In my former life, I spent over 10 years in marketing at NBC’s Today Show in NYC. Now, I’m a modern, savvy parent trying to keep all the balls in the air and navigate raising a teen, tween and 7 yr old in Chicago.

I have appeared on ABC News, WGN, NBC5 & You & Me.  I am a Vice President at  30Seconds — an awesome digital platform making life better- 30 seconds at a time. I’ve also been a contributor to Chicago Parent.com and my work has appeared on the Huffington Post.

Welcome to the newly imagined Beyond the Park…
