Kimberly Mastro, New Jersey Blogger & writer
Kimberly is a stay at home mom to three great children, girls ages 6 and 5, and one 18 month old boy. Kimberly has a BA in psychology and a background in social work, but decided to stay at home once her first daughter was born. Since that day, she has spent most of her time planning fun events, day trips, and activities for herself and the kids that are ideally fun, educational, and affordable! That being said, writing for JFF just plain makes sense! Kimberly looks forward to sharing her future opportunities and experiences with the Jersey Family Fun readers.

Kathy is mom to an active soon-to-be 11 year-old son. She enjoys hiking, traveling, and being outdoors. Her son prefers Minecraft, computer time and video games. Working for Jersey Family Fun gives Kathy the perfect excuse to drag him out to explore. They have both found a recent love of Geocaching, which is a nice combination of their interests. Kathy has spent most of her life in Atlantic County, but is enjoying exploring the neighboring counties of Cumberland and Ocean for Jersey Family Fun.
