Erin Reed

Born and raised in Columbus, I currently reside just outside of Cincinnati with my husband, 6 children ranging in ages from 3 months to 13 years (1 boy, 5 girls), and teacup dog. Working from home as a virtual assistant and having 2 eCommerce stores, I have learned how to manage a big household and business. Prior to my current positions, I have been a banker, worked at a daycare and then went on to open my own, and coached youth cheerleading. I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with family. I am excited to share my family ventures and life hacks with all of my readers.
