KRISTEN MICUCCI, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER

A transplant from North Jersey, Kristen quickly fell in love with the charm of Philly and all of the city’s many offerings. Using her background in sales, she strives to connect with and spread the word of local businesses to support Philly’s ever-growing and diversifying families. When she isn’t wrangling her two boys, you can most likely find her walking around Port Richmond with her pup, scoping out new restaurants in the city, and honing her baking skills in the kitchen.

Stef-Arck-Baynes

STEF ARCK-BAYNES, CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Philly born-and-raised (go Lancers!), Stef is a nonprofit communications professional, toddler and dog mom, and co-owner of 2StreetSammies food truck. As a freelance writer, she covers what she knows — the trials and tribulations of parenting, as well as resources to help moms feel supported – and hopefully, a little more sane! She also mentors young women, and volunteers for mission-driven causes to help make the city where she grew up a kinder and better place.

tara-bahan-marmur

TARA BEHAN, CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Tara brings to Main Line Parent more than 20 years experience covering the Main Line and Western Suburbs full-time for another local publication. Currently, she is fully dedicating her working hours to freelance projects from writing articles to consulting on social media and marketing endeavors for small companies. After growing up in Delaware County (she’s very proud of her DELCO roots), and spending the years after graduating from Saint Joseph’s University in Chester County, she now has been further north in the Bucks County area for close to a decade. Give her the opportunity and she loves to share what makes Bucks such a special place to live and raise a family! She recently spent two years as an expat in England with her husband and two young sons, but is now on her preferred side of the pond enjoying all that the Philadelphia suburbs has to offer. If she’s not on the sidelines of her sons’ flag football and baseball games, she can be found checking out the area’s newest restaurants and shops or on any of the beaches along the Jersey Shore when the weather permits.
