I am the Italian Mamma, and I welcome you to la famiglia. I hope to be a light for you in these dark times. So, grab your espresso (or glass of vino - I don't judge) and stay for a while. (Full disclosure, I'll be toting tea!) Whatever your drink, I can help you navigate family travel, food, and fun with the ultimate goal of helping you make beautiful memories with your loved ones. A mother of two young boys and an Italian American, who married an Italian Italian, I have direct ties to Italy, specifically Ischia, the Neapolitan island that is the home of my ancestors. Once serving as the assistant travel editor of Ladies' Home Journal, I have written about family travel in major U.S. cities such as Washington, D.C. and Boston, Walt Disney World, Disneyland Paris, my home state of New Jersey, and of course my family's native Italy. Join me for the next viaggio. In addition, I have covered a number of other beats, including higher education, parenting, and relationships. My work has appeared in Ladies' Home Journal, Bloomberg Businessweek, iVillage, About.com, and Business Insider to name a few.
