About Me

Sheri is an adventurous mom of 4 who specializes in family travel, parenting and food. After running a hobby blog called Teens, Tweens and Drama Queens for several years, she drew from a previous website she owned in the early 2000s and created Kidsumers. What started as a simple review blog for moms has blossomed into a popular family lifestyle blog with a strong focus on travel.

Before blogging, Sheri created a niche artist magazine which taught her everything from photography to advertising to marketing. These skills have helped her grow a successful lifestyle blog. She has been a brand ambassador and partner for many fabulous brands like Disney, Fisher Price, Frigidaire, HP, Springfree and Sunwing.

Over the past several years, blogging opened the door to other opportunities including freelance writing, photography and writing a book. Sheri's freelance work focuses on travel, lifestyle and health articles.

If she’s not exploring the world, you can find Sheri at home in Ontario enjoying young sci-fi books with her kids, and geocaching Ontario’s trails. Get in touch with Sheri by emailing her at sam@kidsumers.ca.
