About the Founder


I’m the voice behind Thrive in Family Life, wife to an Aussi man, and mom to two handsome little fellas. When I am not working on creating resources to help fellow families I am spending time with my own in our little country home.


I started Thrive in Family Life as a way to share our experiences of Montessori life at home in the first year.

It quickly became a passion for me to share what I learned and fill in the gaps of how to truly implement a Montessori lifestyle at home with infants. Many resources focus on the toddler years and information on the first year can be hard to access.

So, Thrive in Family Life has become focused on “Montessori The First Year”.

Being Insta “picture-perfect” is certainly not reality.

Sooo many photos tell you what you “need to buy” versus what you really “need” for a quality Montessori experience. (Let me tell you, it doesn’t need to break the budget).

So that what Thrive in Family Life is, a place to find real experiences and resources to build a foundation  for your baby’s first year with Montessori principles.
