Ashley Mozingo

Hi everyone! My name is Ashley, and I am a stay at home mom to two girls, Paislee, 3 and Keely, 1. My husband is in the Coast Guard, and is currently stationed at a Coast Guard unit on Camp Lejune. We have been married for five years now and have spent two of those years in Alaska, where Paislee was born, and two in Maine, where we had Keely. We were lucky to get stationed here in 2012, and call North Carolina "home". We were both born and raised in different cities in eastern North Carolina, and we are super excited to get to spend some time here with our girls and introduce them to some of our favorite places that we had as children. Before I met my husband, I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Communications. I have a love for writing, and a huge passion for being a mom, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to write about my experiences and exciting moments of this rocky ride that we all call 'Motherhood'.

Other Onslow Parenting Resources


MomTalk is a place where moms can share, listen, learn or just enjoy. In establishing MomTalk, Onslow’s goal was to create an online community focused on healthy parenting. We’ll provide healthy information that moms can use, but ultimately we hope the moms in Onslow County will build MomTalk Forums in a place that is special and helpful for them. The entire online community will successfully grow as moms join and participate in Groups, follow Twitter posts or subscribe to any of the blogs (listed below). The more moms become active in any of these communities, the more healthy the community becomes. The MomTalk site itself is a starting point to explore all of Onslow’s social media destinations.
