Thanks for your interest in Coast to Coast Mom! I started this blog as a means of sharing our experiences with friends and family from coast to coast. Once we settled in New Jersey, I chose to take a break from public relations, and began blogging about our adventures in earnest. Technology, toys and travel are a natural part of our life, and became the topics I primarily blog about. If you'd like to discuss a potential working relationship, please send me an email at c2cmom at gmail dot com and I'm happy to entertain ideas or share my media kit and bio if appropriate. Otherwise, still feel free to send me an email or tweet - I make an honest effort to get back to everyone (but admit that's not always possible).
I'm attending these upcoming conferences:
CES 2012 Jan 8-13, 2012 in Las Vegas
New York Toy Fair Feb 12-15, 2012 NYC
EVO 2012 July 12-14, 2012 in Park City, Utah
BlogHer '12 Aug 2-4, 2012 in NYC
Heidi (@c2cmom) has mothered her son literally from coast to coast – raised her baby in Silicon Valley, raised a toddler in the Chicago suburbs, and is transitioning him through pre-school in North Jersey. She is fascinated by the similarities and differences in raising children regionally and is still discovering just how to raise her son as a quintessential "Jersey boy."
A former technology public relations professional, Heidi currently works as a freelance writer and blogger contributing to the Nintendo DS Guide for About.com (writing about kids' DS games), Techlicious, and recording weekly podcasts for the Blogging Angels. Heidi has formerly contributed to the New Jersey Moms Blog (part of the Silicon Valley Moms Group), NYMetropolista, and the "Techno Tools for Writers" column for Write On! Online. She blogs about her family travel adventures, technology, charities and growing her family at Coast to Coast Mom.
Interests include exploring the greater NYC-area, catching up on TiVo, attending sporting events, knitting, shopping, and feeding her pop culture/news habit. She's a life-long Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bears fan, but generally enjoys all sports.
