About

Who is this crazy girl?

Hi, I’m Jen. I’m a mom, entrepreneur,  domestic goddess in training, and somewhat desperate housewife living in the Lehigh Valley. I have been married to my high school sweetheart and we have one ridiculously busy and bright 8 year old “little man”. I love sweet tea, baby laughs, San Francisco, and Hostess Snowballs {but not necessarily in that order}.

When I’m not writing, chasing after little man, you can find me at Surf City with my toes in the water and *ss in the sand. My dream is to become a full time surfer/beach bum, but I need to learn how to swim first. Oh, and I’m terrified of sharks.

How Did Lehigh Valley Momma Start?

They say a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. My journey started with creating this blog, my first, Lehigh Valley Momma. I thought I would blog into obscurity, but fate held other cards for me. After being contacted by a local new anchor to contribute to a segment about couponing and saving money, suddenly I was being contacted by people in the valley to chat, review venues and help spread the word about charity events. I contributed to many other blogs and even taught a few couponing classes for church groups and mom groups around the Valley. I traveled across the country to blog conferences and began freelance writing for other sites.

When my husband moved us to beautiful Raleigh, NC, in 2012. I still kept Lehigh Valley Momma up and running as people still visit me there and there are tons of resources and fate struck again when we were transferred back and got to move into the home we left in Allentown. Now we are back and rediscovering the Lehigh Valley once again.

Being a blogger has led to a natural transition to my day job as a social media. I assist small businesses reach their customers through social media. I also coach small business owners and solopreneurs on social media. You can contact  me at jen (at) jencarl (dot) com.

Blogging and being an entrepreneur allows me to work from home allows me to be the room mom, the field trip mom and let me be active in taking care of our 89 year old grandmother who suffered from dementia and has since passed o.

I’m not gonna lie – I also love working in my yoga pants.

Please contact me via email jen (at) jencarl (dot) com if you want to feature Jen or the Naptime Warrior blog. Please make sure that you put MEDIA REQUEST in the subject line.
