Meet Brittany Ferguson:

I am a 33 year old corporate life turned housewife, mom of 3 and 5 year old “angels”. I spent about a decade fine tuning my career in corporate financial planning and analysis, but had a change of heart when my company started fishtailing into oblivion. Now, I spend my days cooking food noone eats, fighting over which cup everyone wants, and building ninja warrior courses in my home. And truly, the innocence of children and the labor of love far outshines grueling days of excel spreadsheets, rolling forecasts, and executive presentations 🙂

Meet Stephanie Frese:

I am a 35 year old mama of two kiddos, my son is 9 years old and my daughter is 11 months. I have been happily married to my husband for 10 years and we’ve been together for 20! I have a Child Development Associate certification in Preschool and have worked as a teacher in a private preschool for 12 years. I enjoy reading, working out, and shopping.
