We’re Kristin and Shanna, and we’ve been friends since we met in our high-school drama class. If you’re really curious, that was back in the mid-’90s when music was classified as ‘grunge’, the Spice Girls were still together, and both of the English Princes were single and had hair.
Now, we both have kids of our own, and although we live on opposite coasts (Kristin in California, and Shanna in North Carolina), we still keep in touch — to chat about our kids, our careers, our love lives, and how we’re coming into our own.
Kristin is the author of Bobby the Buzzlebee, a little “buzzlebee” who shows us it is okay to be different and not like everyone else. She is also the President of Autism Hope Alliance (AHA), a national non-profit organization that provides education for families facing the diagnosis of Autism. In addition, in her spare time, she is going after her childhood dream of becoming an actress (you might see her pop up on your phone, as she has done several internet commercials).
Shanna is a corporate content strategist by day, and an Improv actor and sketch comedy writing student by night (and most weekends). She has a completed memoir draft, which she hopes will be published before she dies without any notoriety to her name, aside from that one time in her high school Spanish class when she tore her skirt on a chair, exposing most of her upper thigh for the entire student body to see.
SuperMom MD is our passion project, the “MD” signifying Mother Determined, which we are…determined mothers who have faced incredible challenges with our children, and who are determined to persevere.
We release episodes of our podcast weekly, discussing a variety of topics related to parenting, working 9-to-5, dating, and what it means to come into our own after turning 40. Our nearly 30-minute show will bring you into our lives, as we share stories from our own experiences, giving you a fair share of laughs and earnest head-shaking, and at the end, we’ll give you a little Rx for the week.
We’re so happy you’re here! Thanks for stopping by, and for listening. If you have a minute and want to be friends on social media, just go ahead and tap one of those social media links at the bottom of the page. If you like what you hear, and want to let us know, or if you have a topic you’d like us to chat about, let us know!
