“I spent 2 years as the Social Media & Community Manager for Graco Children’s Products and during my time in that role, I built a great, positive and reciprocal relationship with Stephanie. Not only did Stephanie do product reviews that were honest, thorough and got a great deal of interaction by her readers, she also engaged with the Graco brand and me personally, in a very authentic, personable and professional way. She was a delight to work with, she has a great blog with an audience that’s as lovely as she is and I highly recommend working with her for your brand.” – Lindsay Lebresco, Account Director, Converseon [Exton, PA]
“On her blog, Stephanie is honest, forthright, and more infectiously optimistic than seems possible. But, psst…I have a secret for you: it’s genuine. After having befriended her in real life, I can tell you that she’s exactly the same in living color as she is in cyberspace. She’s one of the kindest, most encouraging and professionally-minded bloggers I read. Her posts have influenced the products I buy, the recipes I try, and the way I think. If you’re looking for an inspiring, innovative, and influential blogger…you need look no further than Metropolitan Mama.” – Darcie Maranich, Blogger, Such the Spot [Vail, AZ]
“There are a lot of good blogs out there. Yet, every now and then you find a blog like Metropolitan Mama and fall in love and smile every time she pops up on your reader. Stephanie is someone I admire as a woman, mother, blogger, and friend.” – Marcela B., Blogger, Culture Mami [Los Angeles, CA]
“I have been reading Metropolitan Mama everyday since the day it launched! Stephanie’s passion for life and her family shines through in her posts. Well-educated, researched, thoughtful, non-judgemental, kick you in your pants, laugh out loud, light a spark in your soul, yearn for more, do things for others are just a few phrases I would use to describe Metropolitan Mama.” – Ashley P., Make A Wish Foundation [Corona, AZ]
“I’ve never met Stephanie in person but still, I regard her as a good friend. Stephanie’s blog has a way of bridging the distance between moms all over the country (world?!) and making me feel like I could bump into her in a bookstore and we would be sitting over coffee in no time chatting about anything and everything. I love her honesty. I love her controversial topics without being controversial. I love her fun and I love her spunk. Most of all, I love how she inspires me to be the best mom I can be and that’s why I continue to read Metropolitan Mama every day.” – Jenny Nash, Blogger, Mama Nash [Saint Paul, MN]
“Stephanie makes me want to be a better mother and enjoy life more. She gets me interested in products I never knew, and news and causes I would have never seen. She writes simply, and beautifully. Her posts are short, and easy to read and she includes gorgeous photos of herself and her family in almost every one. Metropolitan Mama is way more then just a mommy blog.” – Carrington, Blogger, Capri by the Lake [Phoenix, AZ]
“When I discovered Metropolitan Mama, it quickly because one of my go-to blogs! Steph’s honest, positive look at life is contagious and I love her genuine way of showcasing her passions and fabulous finds.” – Melissa, Blogger, Girly Mama [Philadelphia, PA]
