Amanda lives in Fort Collins with her husband extraordinaire Andy, the rambunctious and fun-loving pup Sweet Georgia Brown, and their newest addition: a most delightful and adorable baby girl named Bea Eloise. Amanda has been writing articles, blog posts, marketing content, and to-do lists for many years, but she’s a newcomer to the mommy game. Sharing her family’s adventures as they grow, learn, and make messes together seems only natural — and it’s a job she wouldn’t trade for the world.
In a nutshell—freelance writer, editor, redhead and mom of four (none of them redheads). Eight years ago, after a stint in advertising and the arrival of her first baby, Jessica switched to a freelance position and dove headfirst into the insane and sleep-deprived world of work-from-home moms. Her regular office hours are from about 8 p.m. on, when you’ll find her answering endless emails, composing new content for various clients and editing stand-up paddleboard magazines, all from the couch. She hates bad spelling and broccoli, so her lucky kids get a pass come dinnertime. Jessica and her family live in northern Nevada with their stinky old pug, and they escape to Lake Tahoe with their paddleboards as often as they can. Check her out at www.jessicatimmons.com.
