At Mommy High Five, our mission is two-fold. First, we aim to celebrate the beauty, joy, and challenges of motherhood. While society seems to marginalize and under appreciate motherhood, we want to highlight the exceptional feats mothers are achieving and learning.
Our “Inspiring Moms” segment highlights the stories of individual mothers and shares their unique stories. From our interviews with national politicians to entrepreneurs to stay-at-home moms, we hope to inspire all moms and help them feel valued. Through this segment we are “Celebrating Mothers One Story at a Time”.
Secondly, we seek to help parents raise their children safely in an often unsafe and scary world. Whether it’s through discussing safe tech options for kids or talking about how to have difficult conversations with kids, we want to provide helpful information to make parenting easier.
Each child is unique and every family faces different challenges. Our hope is that you will feel welcome here and understand that while we might not have experienced everything you are going through, we are hopeful that we can provide you support and ideas that might help in your parenting journey.
We work to keep our articles current with the most up-to-date information and products. Our writers do extensive research to review products and recommend the very best they find. Product recommendations are made based on personal experience, hands-on product testing, customer reviews, and comparisons with other products. We work hard to keep our reviews honest and unbiased.
Who We Are
Owners Susan and Jason are parents to 4 children. We have one child who has autism as well as a hearing impairment and a vision impairment. Another of our children has Celiac Disease. While none of these challenges is easy to live with, they have forced us to grow in ways we never could have otherwise. And we have learned to rely on others for support and advice. We hope we can also provide that help and understanding to others in similar situations as well.
Susan is the Editor-in-Chief as well as CEO of Mommy High Five. She enjoys reading, watching sports, playing board games, traveling, preserving food, playing music, and taking care of a small homestead. Susan has a BA in English with an Editing emphasis and has worked as a freelance writer and editor for over 20 years.
One of Susan’s biggest passions is teaching kids important skills, including playing music, reading, working hard, and showing compassion.

Our writers are moms (and some grandmas) who share our vision. These writers share their views as moms who are working every day to give their kids the most enriching lives they can. We try to find writers who are experts in each subject, such as professional photographers, doulas, PE teachers, etc.
