A Few of Our Experts:

Claudia: During my day job I own a global branding, marketing and advertising firm – and I LOVE it! But my passion is complete when I’m creating the “stuff” that makes every day a bit more special, memorable, tasteful and joyful! Whether painting, sewing, printmaking, crafting, styling, thrifting, inventing, baking or cooking – I find creativity is a muscle; the more you exercise it, the more it grows!

Heather: Weekdays I tackle public relations and social media as the Phoenix director of a regional communications firm. On weekends, my three boisterous boys tackle me and ask, “What’s our adventure today, mom?” Thankfully, I’m an East Valley native and have plenty of friends and family to lean on for the insider’s guide to surviving mommy-hood in Mesa.
