Carissa is a happy, grateful, sometimes funny and often times tired mother of four (three living) shuttling a minivan around the Chicago suburbs and clinging to just enough irreverence to stay sane.

She writes regularly for The Huffington Post, and has also been featured on LeanIn.org, Scary Mommy, Today’s Parenting Team, Literary Mama, Brain Child Magazine, Club Mid at Scary Mommy, FARE (Food Allergy Research and Education), Allergy Kids Foundation, Mum.info¬†and the Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop, Humor Writers. ¬†She is also a part of the anthology book, Three Minus One by She Writes Press and associated with the film, Return to Zero.


She feels strongly about family and travel, food allergies, perinatal loss, and trying to be mindful of the moments she is given with her husband and darling young maniacs/children.

Thanks for reading!
