Alaina Frederick is a proud mother to three beautiful little boys. After relocating to the Steel City, she decided to stay home with her children fulltime leaving the corporate banking world behind her. In order to earn money and keep her mind active she created a online natural parenting boutique.
She quickly realized that the time and money put into a product based business was not where she wanted to be in life. After starting a blog to accompany the boutique she discovered blogging was her true passion. So much so that she decided to close the boutique and learn all she could about this new facinating tool. She now is developing her own business for web design, provides Virtual Assistant services and continues to share her love of green at Dinker & Giggles – her first blogging quest.
