Glad you found Oh My! Omaha – I think you’ll like it here.
Launched in 2013, Oh My! Omaha is a parent’s guide to Omaha (and beyond). You’ll find out what’s going on around the metro – with or without kids – plus, feed that travel bug of yours with ideas for day trips, road trips and longer. If you’re not from around here, you’ll see it’s a great place to visit.
I started this blog because I knew our city was full of great places and events, but I didn’t know if they were suitable for my young kids. Now I go check those things out and report back to you.
Want to stay in the know? Sign up for my free bi-weekly newsletter – be the first of your friends to know about the next kid-friendly exhibit or concert, find out about restaurant or be inspired to go on your next trip.
So how’d I get here?
I wrote about Omaha area events for seven years for a local newspaper, writing about arts and entertainment for most of that time. After that, I started working at a performing arts nonprofit, and today, I find myself overseeing marketing and PR for the city’s children’s museum.
I can’t live without theater and concerts; outdoor outings like hiking, scouring the farmers market and running (sometimes); movies; art; reading; failing at many DIY things found on Pinterest; travel; and food (maybe a little too much).
As luck would have it, I married a guy who loves most of that, too. I call him Mr. Wonderful, sometimes without sarcasm. We’re raising two funny kids who are good sports about my need to document every step of their lives with photos and videos. I call my oldest Farley, because he has a history of Chris Farley-esque falls, and my youngest Mooch, because she will swipe the good stuff off your dinner plate if you’re not looking.
Hey, look! I can write for you:
Lately, I’m getting back to my journalist roots by freelance writing. You’ll find my work in Omaha Magazine and its offspring, like B2B, Omaha Home and Old Market Encounter.
“Reclaimed Enterprises: New life for old wood” Spring 2016 B2B issue (page 62)
“Chris Hochstetler: KANEKO’s new director tells all” May/June Omaha Magazine issue (page 49).
