About Me

Maureen used to be obsessed with baseball -- and then she had children. After she welcomed her son, Charlie, and his extra chromosome, she discovered her passion for writing about Down syndrome and disability-related issues.

With two toddlers begging for attention, Maureen recently walked away from a successful career in corporate public relations to dive into full-time parenthood and naptime writing.

You can find her weekly column, Chasing Charlie, on allParenting. Maureens blog,, began as a way to chronicle a yearlong job share and has evolved into a place for honesty, advocacy -- and lots more naptime writing!
