Chrissy started blogging in 2011 as a creative outlet during a brief 11-month stint as a stay-at-home mom to her son and daughter. She has founded multiple blogs since then and developed strong communities both online and in real life based on her social media driven network. She frequently collaborates directly with name brands as well as with marketing/PR agencies to develop unique, engaging content for her communities. Her parenting articles, DIY tutorials, and educational projects for kids have been published and recognized by media properties such as PBS Parents, WhattoExpect.com, Red Tricycle, BlogHer, and Peet’s Coffee.

After being the constant informal go-to resource for her friends in the blogging and startup communities, she decided to launch Bloggy Law to help bloggers and brands navigate the social media legal landscape a little more smoothly.
