About us

Kiwi Families is brought to you by yours truly, Liz (oh and my kids Layla and Lily make the odd appearance too!).

As a mum of two, deep in the trenches of snack negotiations and mysterious sticky substances, I know firsthand the joys and challenges that come with raising little ones. My vision for Kiwi Families is to be your virtual village – a place for connecting, sharing those “OMG, is this normal?” moments, and finding the resources that make this parenting gig just a bit smoother

My project management background means I thrive on organized chaos, so expect practical tips and maybe a few sanity-saving spreadsheets along the way. Most importantly, Kiwi Families is about building a supportive community. Whether you’re here for advice, a good laugh, or just some commiseration over those 5 am wake-ups, we’ve got you covered.

With a background in project management,  I loved bringing organization and efficiency to the workplace. Now, I’m channeling that same passion into growing Kiwi Families and providing valuable resources for parents like us. I want Kiwi Families to be a place where you find inspiration, helpful tips, and a supportive community.

We love hearing from you! Want to share a genius parenting hack or suggest the best playground in town?  Reach out to us here.

And we love to hear about new products and services our parents want to know about, if you represent a business or service you think our community should know about, or you’re interested in collaborating with us please contact us here.
