The LocalKins journey began when my son was 16 months, and we were planning a family trip to Colorado. After too many late nights spent reading website after website and cross-referencing with maps and reviews, I thought there had to be a better way. And so LocalKins was born. I want my son to be an explorer of the world around him, and I want to help other parents find fun and engaging activities to do with their kids. LocalKins highlights activities with the goal of helping parents raise curious and open-minded kids. 

I may be a Stanford and Harvard alum and former diplomat, but by far, Mom is the most challenging role I have ever had. Fortunately, I have a few great helpers on this journey and a son whose unflagging energy inspires me to discover new experiences. And also to find ways to tire him out:)
