Hey there, I’m so glad you found my little piece of the internet. I started Damn Good Mom in 2017 after giving birth to the little person you see in the background in the photo above.
I’m passionate about helping pregnant women and new moms create a home life that thrives. I believe that starts with education. On the blog, I write posts about pregnancy and motherhood, organization and productivity, and financial mom life tips that I’m still learning about everyday.
Being a mom is not about being perfect, no matter how great her Instagram feed looks. However, motherhood can be fulfilling. I believe:
- When moms thrive, the family thrives. #momruntheworld
- You have the ability to organize your home and finances. #bossmom
- You deserve to create a successful lifestyle that works for you and your family. #thegoodlife
I want to help do all of this and more! I want you to be the mom rockstar that you are!
My name is Tiffany. I’m part scientist, part world traveler, and full-time mommy AND I’m totally in love with being a mom and blogging about all things motherhood.
1. DAMN GOOD MOM IS FOR MOMS OK WITH BEING A MOM WITHOUT LABELS.
Motherhood is difficult. Parenting labels can make it more difficult and confusing. I find value in parenting research, however, I choose not to be one type of parent. Nope, I’m not a tiger mom, helicopter mom, crunchy mom or attachment mom. I’m simply a mom doing the best I can to raise a God fearing child with the help of my husband.
2. I’M MARRIED TO MY COLLEGE SWEETHEART
J, my husband, and I went to college in the same town in North Carolina. First came friendship, then love, then marriage, then a baby in a baby carriage. We share a love for parenting and travel. And everything is mostly all good except during college basketball season. I’m a Carolina fan in love with a Duke fan, YIKES!
3. I NEVER THOUGHT I WANTED TO BE A MOM
I was that girl who was OK with not having children. I enjoyed world travel, midday naps, and FREEDOM. I never dreamed I’d love being a mom so much. I can’t believe there was a time I didn’t want this. Ha, and now I blog about it! The irony!

4. I HAVE A FEW COLLEGE DEGREES & DEBT
My last title before full-time mommy was chemist.
I have a degree in psychology, biology, and family life and youth development (Master). I told you I value education AND (the truth) I’m a bit of an undecided millennial. Having these degrees have allowed me to explore different fields of work but I also have a healthy amount of student loan debt.
Learning how to save money and budget has been the most influential skill I have learned. I encourage moms to live below their means and maximize their income without sacrificing all the fun.

5. IF WANDERLUST IS A DISEASE, I GOT IT BAD! I LOVE TO TRAVEL
I have been blessed to travel around the world before retirement and I believe you can too. I teach the 7 step travel process that have allowed my family and I to travel to far away places like Spain, Australia, Japan, and New Zealand on a shoestring budget.
Some of my favorite places include:
MORE ABOUT ME
You at still reading, I’m flattered!
Some people need coffee, I need travel. I taught English in Europe, volunteered in Central America, served in AmeriCorps, and had a destination wedding in Turks and Caicos. I get around 😉
When I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, my life as a scientist and world traveler changed dramatically. I’ve had to make some major life adjustments and I am learning how to be a better person from a toddler that can’t even tie her shoes! I love it!
I created Damn Good Mom to share, connect, and learn. Thanks for following along!
