Creator and CEO of 4DMV Kids and Founder of Black Children’s Books DMV+. I’m a wife, mom, and marketing professional by day. At night and on weekends, I’m an adventure seeker and kid-event researcher! Along with my husband, Nate, and our two kids, Olivia and Jackson, we love finding fun and unique things to do for kids in the DC metro area. 

As a DC native, I’ve watched the DMV community change. From visiting the former Capital Children’s Museum at Union Station in DC as a child to now visiting the National Children’s Museum at the Reagan Building with my children, I’ve been around the block a few times! So why not share my experiences with you…

I created 4DMV Kids in 2021 during the height of the pandemic. Stuck at home with two kids, working full-time, and managing the household, I began searching for things to keep my kids occupied. I started a Facebook Group for my mom-friends, who began sharing my content and adding their friends to the group too. 

From there, I started an Instagram page and created a website to store all the information I continued to find. My purpose in creating this platform is to help families like your own plan time together more efficiently.

Connecting the DMV to Black Lit Creatives who inspire Young Readers.

While attending an information session for the inaugural Black Children’s Book Week in 2022, I met several local educators, authors, and community leaders interested in hosting events in the DMV area in honor of the week. We came together to form a collective that held several Instagram Live conversations with local authors and also hosted an in-person Author Meet & Greet during that first year.

Since then, Black Children’s Books DMV+ has developed into a Community-Based Organization dedicated to enhancing the visibility of black children’s books and access to creatives in black literature. We recognize that representation matters and has the power to significantly influence young readers.
