About Us

Hello! My name is Chelsey; I’m a graduate student at the University of Utah studying Family and Consumer Studies. I received my undergraduate degree in Human Development Family Studies with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education. I have a passion for teaching young children and love learning about the child’s development. I’m interested in educating young parents about what they should expect as parents and hope this blog site is useful to those people who need it.

Hi, my name is Cheryl Richardson. I am one of those mothers returning to college to complete their degree. I am 12 units away from graduating with a degree in psychology. I love the opportunity to learn and teach the research available to us as Family Life Educators.

Hello my name is Laura. I am currently a senior at the University of Utah. I will be graduating in the spring with a Human Development and Family Studies degree. I currently do not have any children but I have been around them my whole life. I am very close with my two nieces (ages six and nine) and my twenty-four month old twin nephews. I am interested in the development of children and how one adjusts to their lives after the birth of a new baby.

Hi, my name is Liz and I'm an undergraduate student at the University of Utah. I have two young children ages 5 and 1. The personal experiences I have gained from raising my children have sparked my interest in family life. I look forward to sharing my personal experiences as well as research that could be found helpful to new parents. I hope you enjoy our blog!

My name is Sophie and as a current student at the University of Utah I harbor a great passion for learning, and jump at any opportunity to increase my understanding of the world around me. I am an only child, and have (all biases aside) some of the best parents in the world! Speaking as someone who wants to be a parent herself one day, I think it is so important for good information to be available.  New parents can have so much influence on their children and I want parenting to be a positive and amazing experience for all involved.
