Joanna Peresie is a sometimes writer, and full time lover of coffee and Snickers bars. A Muncie, Indiana native, Joanna moved to Burbank 15 years ago, and is happy to call this community home. She has two amazing children, a dog, a cat, six ill-behaved chickens, and a wonderful husband. She nannies three adorable little ones, works with Hollywood Guitar Lessons to provide after school enrichment programs to elementary school students, and holds several PTA board positions at Jordan Middle School. (Go Cougars!) When she is not volunteering at fundraisers or doling out last minute book report assistance, she can be found writing truthful assessments of her life as a mother and caregiver for the amusement and mockery of her family and friends. Find her on Facebook at Joanna Peresie, or Twitter and Instagram @joperesie.
Erin Viera has spent the past 12 years working in the nonprofit sector. She currently runs a global youth leadership program in the United States where she has traveled the world collaborating with others in order to empower young people to make the world a better place. She fell in love with Burbank 8 years ago when she moved here with her husband and since then, her family has multiplied to include two young children, a beautiful pup and seven hens.
Erin recently launched a new blog, www.bikebikebaby.com, which chronicles her ongoing journey to drive less and bike more in Burbank. The experience has been transformative for her family and friendships. In fact, she is now a part of a Burbank mama bicycle gang!
