We absolutely love working with Kiva and she is such a wonderful person inside and out and a great storyteller! The mom of three appeared on our July cover with her three kids in the lazy river at Adventure Island. She shared her favorite waterfront restaurants in that issue, but has also added to our list of favorite places to eat with kids in Tampa Bay! You can follow her on Instagram at @thefunfoodiemama and at thefunfoodiemama.com.
Maggie has been contributing with us for more than a year and most recently took on a new role as co-host of Daytime on WFLA where she created a new segment called ‘Maggie and the Moms’. You can read her articles each month in Tampa Bay Parenting Magazine, but you can also get to know her here. Watch her on Daytime on WFLA on weekdays at 10am. You can also follow her on Instagram at @maggierodrgiueztv.
If there’s a female powerhouse in Tampa Bay, Julie probably has her number. She spent several years building a network of female leaders in our community through the KNOW Women which has published four books featuring movers and shakers in Tampa Bay. In every issue of Tampa Bay Parenting Magazine, Julie shares the story of a Mom to KNOW–all from a variety of backgrounds, but all have a single drive to succeed and help other women succeed. She has a lot more exciting things in store, so be sure to follow her in her journey on Instagram at @julietingley.
