Hi there! I'm Emily.

I wear many hats: wife, mom, science geek, former teacher, coach, musician, just to name a few. I believe that sugarcoating is better left for desserts (which I love). I'm grateful for recovery and forgiveness, and practice both each day, one day at a time. I enjoy traveling and exploring as much as I do playing board games in my jammies. I love to laugh, and don't overuse sarcasm AT ALL (see what I did there?). I love going to movies mainly because of the popcorn, and I'll try any sport, no matter how much I suck at it.

Sober Mom Squad

The Sober Mom Squad is just as it sounds: a Squad of Moms who are already sober, those who are just dipping their toes in exploring an alcohol-free lifestyle, and everything in between! We share. We connect. We talk about the hard shit. We create a community in the lonely pockets of motherhood. We don’t shy away from the hard topics, and we nod our heads in solidarity.
