We live in a magical land where carbon footprints are calculated and compared, jeans and t-shirts are the local industry uniform, the mom running the school PTA has an MBA from Stanford, and most of us own at least one product beginning with a lower case i. We may not have a personal pilates instructor, but we do get a little thrill when opening up a box with the latest high tech gadget and seeing the words “Designed in California.” We’re smart, educated and we have an opinion. Welcome to Silicon Valley Mamas.

Founder and Managing Editor Kimberly Kauer works as a social media consultant and as a personal assistant to two pint-sized, yet tough-as-nails clients: Clover and Rocket. When not washing, folding, then refolding clothes, reminding her clients to wash their hands and stop hitting each other, Kimberly works as a writer and social media manager. She grew up in Marin and after a few moves to San Francisco, Washington, D.C. and Boston, settled with her husband, a software engineer, in Silicon Valley. She does not drive a mini-van. Kimberly started blogging in 2006 at Tippy Toes and Tantrums. Prior to that, she worked as a reporter covering California environmental policy. Her work has been featured in various publications, including the Miami Herald, the Charlotte Observer and the Fresno Bee. Her Twitter handle is @tippytoes.
