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'.

Hi everyone, I am Brooke Brown-Pollard. I am originally from Virginia Beach, but made North Carolina my home in 1992. I double majored in Sociology and Criminal Justice while in college and upon graduating I moved to Jacksonville and been in this area ever since. I got married in 2003 to my wonderful husband, whom I dated throughout college. My career has involved working with at-risk youth and assisting them in making their life better. I worked at Eckerd Youth Alternatives as a Family Worker for six years and I currently work as a Therapeutic Foster Care Consultant. After working with children for seven years, I returned to school where I earned a master's degree in counseling and psychology and I'm currently working on obtaining my LPC. While I have various educational and professional accomplishments, I feel that my biggest accomplishment is my son, Sayle. He was born March 25, 2009 and I truly feel like the luckiest mom on the planet. He is my adorable curly headed treasure and his antics constantly entertain those around him! Sayle gives me plenty to write about! I am your typical mom but I'm definitely not June Cleaver. While I have found myself accosting people to show them pictures of my son, I am a proud member of moms against getting a mom hair cut, moms against mini-vans, and you will never catch me in a pair of mom jeans, sweat pants, or Crocs (all my shoes have high heels!) My life is extremely busy and hectic as I balance my family and my career, but I have found while being a working mom is extremely stressful, it is also exceptionally rewarding.
