modernmami™: A mom trying to make it in the modern world. Juggling a business, husband, kids, household, life, etc., etc. One who not only values her family, but also herself.
Hi and welcome! I’m Melanie, a Central Florida Latina mom blogger, mom to an amazing 11-year-old tween girl, awesome 6-year-old boy, and wife to a wonderfully supportive Caribbean-born husband. Read on to learn more about our family!
Who is Melanie & modernmami™?
As a new mom that worked full-time outside the home, I was looking to spend more time with my 6-month old daughter while still earning income. modernmami™ was born out of a desire to provide for my family in more ways than one. Little did I know that 11 years later, this journey of modernmami™ would have evolved so immensely, providing a space for moms all around the world to connect on issues that speak to them directly.
I have a degree in Industrial & Systems Engineering, over 10 years’ experience in Information Technology, 3 years’ experience in the e-learning industry, and now 11 years in social media. I fully embrace my role as a digital entrepreneur and content creator!
I am originally from Puerto Rico and have lived in the Central Florida area since I was a young child. Along with my husband of 14 years, 11-year-old tween daughter, and 6-year old son, we currently reside in the Tampa Bay area. We are raising multicultural children and love sharing our culture in an effort to help our children learn about their Trinidadian and Puerto Rican heritage.
Who is the modernmami™ family?
My 11-year-old tween girl is vibrant, funny, curious, and smart. Dubbed “baby girl,” she is an avid reader who’s a fan of fantasy fiction (and all things Harry Potter), but really, enjoys reading almost anything. She also loves puns, STEAM subjects, asking questions, and in short, is an enthusiast of learning.
My 6-year-old boy is energetic, smart, sweet, and funny. “Baby boy” always seems to be running and has recently taken an interest in flag football. His favorite subject is math, but he is a strong independent reader – reading chapter books for over a year! He also loves playing video games in his spare time – Mario and Splatoon are his current faves!
Supportive husband, dedicated father, and self-described laughter advocate, Justin is my rock. He keeps the kids and I laughing on a constant basis, but is also not afraid to get serious and have a heart-to-heart when any of us need it. As a brand and design strategist by day and gamer by night, he’s an all-around fan of family fun!
