Tech-at-Home Mom came to be because I was often asked more about personal devices than I was about school-related topics when I was serving teachers and students as an Instructional Technologist. So I decided to create a space online where I could post not only the educational technology resources I had discovered or created but where I could answer those personal technology questions. Now that I am a stay-at-home mom, I’ve picked up yet another perspective with which to answer all those questions. When I’m not working with teachers and students on the daily, I’m here, ready to share ideas and advice about technology in the home, products, and resources I have found valuable, and anything else my readers might be interested in. More about me and how to find me below.

Web Design

I’ve been building and decorating online spaces since 2004. There is something exciting about adding and changing a page online that can be seen by anyone whether through a link or stumbled upon. I’ve worked with bands, artists, school districts, restaurants and shop owners. There is nothing I don’t love about the process of designing a website.

When I decided I wanted to learn how to build an e-commerce website, I thought I’d practice by building a store around something that I am passionate about. And that is how Mommin’ It came to be.

In February of 2004, I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Music Education. For the next seven years, I worked as a music teacher to students in first through fifth grade. I went back to school for a Masters of Education in Technology Integration and in 2011 I switched to coaching teachers on integrating technology in their own classrooms.


In the summer before I started my first teaching job, I taught myself how to code a website. It was back when blogs were new and I had no idea what I was doing. I learned through online tutorials and books. It was a summer project. Now, I can churn them out way faster and man, they look way better, too.

I’ve been using the moniker Atomic Lola since the days of my first website. So when I started making plans for my own small business, I launched several new outlets for my personal brand. This includes my website, Atomic Lola, and my YouTube channel. I’m also on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and Snapchat.
