Amelia Sugerman

Amelia lives in MA with her husband, their son, Cole (2016) and doggie, Layla May. She graduated from Syracuse University, works full time as a public relations manager for a travel company, and sits on the board of Girls on the Run Rhode Island. She can’t function without to-do lists and coffee and loves being outside, traveling, the Red Sox, and Narragansett. She believes every mom (working, stay-at-home, or work from home) should cut themselves some slack when it comes to right or wrong.
