Family Lifestyle Consulting and Writing

I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint - and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.
— Oprah

Hi! I'm Amy! Welcome to my home-centered business Firefly, llc!

I'm a researcher, writer, teacher, and lifelong learner. 

Parenting is hard. Childhood shouldn't be. 

I'm here to help!

Let's Be Friends Online! 


  • Is your house overflowing with neglected toys?

  • Do your children struggle with sharing or playing independently?  

  • Are you completely overwhelmed with a ridiculously busy schedule?

  • Are you constantly putting out tantrum fires and ready for a better way? 

  • Not sure who you are or how to find time for yourself now that you're a mom?

Are you ready for a more peaceful, purposeful, playful lifestyle?

I totally get it, my friend! 

Understanding how the early childhood brain grows and develops can be the key to unlocking parenting secrets.

I can help you sort through mental and physical clutter to make family life a lot less stressful.

Nice to meetcha!

Let me tell you who I am and why you can trust me to help you find this dreamy family lifestyle.

I studied at Carroll University, earning a B.S. in Elementary and Early Childhood Education and received professional teacher licensing for babies through pre-teens.        

I taught in several early childhood settings until I left work outside the home to take on the hardest job I've ever had, being a mother. 

Now the teacher has become the student as I am learning every day from the mindfulness, vulnerability, courage, and tenacity of our two energetic little boys.  

The past decade has found me trying to find my place in a world that often feels difficult and dark. I've climbed my way to solid ground in recovery from postpartum mental illness. I've managed difficult relationships and challenging decisions. All these experiences have led me on a path to wellness, self-care, mindfulness, minimalism, and positive parenting. I study the science of happiness, spirituality, and how to be our best versions of ourselves. I write to share my interpretations and real life experiences with researching these topics.

You can find my writing here on my blog, on,  Happify, Motherly, and Red Tricycle Spoke Network!

I'm always on the lookout for new writing projects! So, if you'd like to work together, please contact me

I am so thankful to be able to do what I love, help others, and learn along with them. So, whether it's an overflowing play space or a stressful parenting situation, my experience, education, and unique intuitive perspective can get you pointed in the right direction. We can talk in-person, via video chat, or I can send personalized suggestions by e-mail. 

I am here to help families raise confident children in an increasingly confusing world. Working together with me will mean you can keep it real. We're in this together! 

Fun Facts! 

  • I am a minimalist. 
  • I am a  Unitarian Universalist. 
  • I am fascinated by space and time.  
  • I am a singer and dancer and get giddy about musicals.
  • I am a highly sensitive person, which basically means I have superpower senses and emotions.

That's me! I'm looking forward to getting to know you!
