Speakers

Stefanie Mullen is the co-author of Chicken Soup for the Girlfriend’s Soul and owner and founder of Ooph.com a site devoted to the parenting of tweens and teens. Stefanie has been featured in the New York Times and has appeared on NBC San Diego News, Fox 5 News, KUSI and NPR.

She is married to an incredible man and is the mother of three wonderful boys, two teens and a kindergartner and as she says, “Our home might smell like yesterday’s boxers (which are still lying on the floor) but it’s more fun that you can shake a lacrosse stick at.”

Stefanie feels strongly that the teen years don’t have to be horrible. In fact, with the right amount of humor, they can be down right delightful. (Most of the time.)

Jane Collins is currently the Director of Market Research for BlogHer. As part of her responsibilities, she designs, fields and interprets online survey studies for internal BlogHer efforts as well as to support client needs. In addition, Jane contributes monthly posts to a Research center on BlogHer.com.

Jane has spent many years in media and marketing research, heading up teams at organizations such as ABC, Fox television, Nielsen Media Research and MySpace. She also partners with a former colleague to write a blog about entertainment and media called The Flaming Nose.

The Commercial Program Manager for Huggies, Kevin works with the Brand teams and Agencies to drive commercial programs via multiple channels... including Bloggers!

Ashley Evans Mattocks is a freelance graphic designer, aspiring novelist, and a horrible knitter.  She meant to be a writer when she grew up, but as editor-in-chief of her high school yearbook she fell in love with her first font, learned about negative space, and never looked back.  As a graphic designer, she has designed logos for captains of industry, web graphics for beauty bloggers, interactive training for international corporations, and supercute invitations for her daughters’ birthday parties.

Writing is still her first love. She blogged extensively at Schadenfreudette about single motherhood, brain aneurysms, and her daughters.  Now remarried to a recovering daddyblogger, she blogs at OMGyall.com about her recent relocation to the vast, cheerful Midwest and how confusing this is to a misanthropic extroverted Southern girl.
