Since Jan was a just a little girl she dreamed of one day becoming a mom.  When her dream was realized, it represented Jan’s single proudest accomplishment in life. Little did she know how hard it would be! Without the support of a traditional family of her own, Jan was thrown into motherhood headfirst while also juggling a very busy career in corporate America. Shortly after the birth of her daughter, Katie, who is now 4, Jan was diagnosed with a devastating and critical case of Lyme Disease, which is extremely prevalent in the state of Rhode Island. Jan was left shattered and fighting for her life with a newborn in tow and an active five-year old boy. Jan quickly figured out that if she were going to survive what she called ‘rock bottom,’ she was going to have to brainstorm some easy parenting tips, tricks, and hacks in order to survive and keep her family thriving. After implementing various parenting hacks and tricks into her own home life, she began to feel relief as her routine got much easier. Jan started sharing her parenting tips and tricks with others, mostly via social media. The feedback she received from other parents was so tremendous that she decided to publish her parenting hacks so everyone could benefit from them, and that’s how Diapers, Daycare, and Deadlines – Survival Hacks for Super Busy Parents was born. The most rewarding part of publishing for Jan has been the feedback from parents who share that her book has helped them become better parents in many ways!

  1. Parenting is a daily challenge, but to have to do it with a disease that leaves you depleated and exhausted, must be a nightmare. I have chronic lyme and understand the energy it takes to carry out even simple tasks at times. This book was conceived from a need to deal with a serious problem and it will help all parents with their everyday challenges. What a great gift to come from a personal dilemma. Talk about lemons to lemonade! Thanks,Jan.
