Must Read-Moms: Editorial Board
Meet the 2010 Must-Read Moms editorial board
Carrie is a former newspaper reporter who gave up daily deadlines and overly caffeinated editors to launch a small business selling coolisimo Spanish T-shirts and, of course, to hang out a bit more with the fiercest boss she's ever known: her own daughter, Maria. In the five years since she left the newsroom, she has launched a second T-shirt line called Chichi & Flaco, freelanced for publications such as Parenting.com, and has found herself doing public relations and online media consulting for small businesses.
Never would have imagined it, but could not have better planned it.
She lives near Nashville, Tenn., far from the Cuban-American homeland that is Miami, so for Spanish comfort she looks online for Latina friends and locally, she stalks Latina moms at the park, grocery store and in Zumba class.
She often dreams of pastelitos and old men in crisp guayaberas.
