Meet Megan

Bonjour, mon ami!

I’m Megan, the founder and CEO of Mama Brilliance. I created Mama Brilliance with one purpose: to help parents live brilliantly. Pregnancy and parenting are beautiful and exciting, but they can also be confusing and downright stressful sometimes. Mama Brilliance is here to put the sparkle back in your life with clear and concise concepts for brighter living. Let’s get you living brilliantly.

A little more about me, I’m married to an amazing man who currently serves in the U.S. Coast Guard, and we’re expecting our first kiddo in September of 2017. I’ve worked with kids and parents over the past 10 years as a nanny and caregiver, and I’m also a fur-mama to 2 dogs and a very opinionated cat. Seriously… sass for days with that one. I’m also a stickler for objective content that focuses on the facts. So if you’re looking for content and resources that weigh both sides of the equation (whatever that might be), you’re in the right place.

Thank you so much for checking out Mama Brilliance! Can’t wait to see you around!
