Chief Events Rockstar

I became a Vermont transplant seven years ago after meeting and falling madly in love with my husband, Jason, a South Burlington native at the University of New Hampshire. My education and training are in social work and although I left that career behind (at least for now) after my first child was born in 2014 my passion continues to be children, families, and the want to connect moms to one another through building community. Fast forward to the present and my days are filled with parenting and chasing after two amazing and bright children, Caroline and Augie, and one fur baby, Copper, while trying to keep our home having some semblance of order and co-running BurlingtonVT Moms Blog. I love everything VT, especially anything made local. My favorites are our VT wine, beer, and events. As the Chief Events Rockstar I’m responsible for planning and putting on our marvelous events, overseeing our neighborhood groups, and really anything else that involves us interacting with the community. You can contact me at Josilyn {at} burlingtonvtmomsblog {dot} com

Chief Media Maven

In 2010, I moved to Vermont with my husband and our three boys. This beautiful state stole our hearts right away and we have been making it home ever since. My husband is in the military, proudly serving in the Vermont Air National Guard. My boys are 16, 13, and 12. I truly love being a mom to three boys! I am a (mostly) stay at home mom slash work from home mom and spend a lot of time volunteering in our church and military communities. I enjoy cooking and baking. I love to write and do so in my…what’s that called…oh yes, free time. My writing is generally filled with sarcasm and over sharing. I just gotta be real! I’m a goofball by heart and love to laugh. I have been a part of the BVT Moms team since the get-go and truly adore being a part of this team! My role as the Chief Media Maven includes overseeing all advertising and sponsorship opportunities for the blog as well as managing our social media platforms!

Meet the Founders

The Founders: Nissa and Shannon

Nissa and Shannon met in 2012 and became fast friends. Both had recently moved to the Burlington area (although Shannon had grown up in Vermont) and were immediately bound together by a passion for their families and wanting to have a community to be a part of. They both discovered City Moms Blog Network through an old friend of Shannon, and started BurlingtonVT Moms Blog in October 2012 with a desire to connect moms to one another and remind them that they are not alone on this mothering journey.  In 2014 Shannon chose to take a step back in ownership to concentrate on her family. In 2015 Nissa decided to move back to Minneapolis and sold the blog to the current owners, Josilyn, Tasha, and Tara. If it weren’t for Nissa and Shannon we wouldn’t be here today and we are all forever grateful for what they started!
