Hey Ya’ll – So glad you’re here !!!
My name is Karen! I’m a wife to an amazing Hubs, a big sis to a sassy teenager Ells, mom to a sweet beautiful boy Aiden and an aunt to three precious little’s Ethan, Milania & Avery. I am a world traveler at heart and very passionate about self directed education. I also am also a writer, speaker and advocate for gentle parenting.
I created The Mom Trotter to share my budget travel tips, homeschooling life, parenting as well as to connect with other families following the same path as me. People think that after kids, travel has to stop, but I am proof that it doesn’t. My passion is to help and empower parents, as well as show them that travel with kids is possible and doable as a one income family, stay at home parent or while working a full time job.
I am also the founder of Black Kids Do Travel alongside my 6 year old Aiden with a mission strive to encourage parents with children of color, to travel with their children and show them the world. This organization was born to create a safe space for families to discuss their travel and issues that they face traveling the world with children of color. This has grown into a beautiful Facebook community of over 18K plus families. If you have children of color and plan to travel with them, make sure to join our Facebook Community.
When I’m not busy writing, teaching and watching Netflix, I also help families plan vacations. So if you need help planning a Disney Cruise (or any cruise), a vacation to an All-Inclusive resort somewhere exciting, feel free to reach out to me at Memory Making Getaways.
