About Me

“The Best Part About Traveling is Coming Home.”

Download My Mommy Flies Media Kit.

The Skinny:  I write about traveling the world and managing my life as a flight attendant, wife, and mother of 3.

I’ve lived in Atlanta for 15 years now and though I wasn’t born and raised in the south, I consider it my home.  New York is the city that gave me life as well as my “Don’t tell me to relax” persona.   Growing up in the heart of Brooklyn is quite different than living in the cozy suburbs of the “A”,  but my childhood upbringing continues to keep me humble and grounded.

I’ve worked in the airline industry for quite some time.  Lucky for me my husband is also a travel professional and enjoys it.  Together we have visited numerous destinations world wide as a couple, solo, or together as a family.   We recently celebrated our 10 year Wedding Anniversary in Paris, France!  We have to be very creative and think outside the box in order to make our busy lifestyle work for us.  (Read more about us on Quirky, Brown Love!)

Other than traveling, I’m passionate about raising my children 20, 8, and 6, to become leaders.  World leaders if I had my say.  I do my best to expose them to people, places, ideas and cultures beyond their own.   I’m determined to get them to fall in love with reading because I believe books will guide them to their true life’s purpose.   

One of the things I never leave home without is my DSLR camera.  I enjoy capturing people, places, and things that are deserving of a post card. (Remember those?)  All of the photos that I use on this site are ones that I’ve captured, unless I tell you otherwise.  Photography has always been part of my life, I have fond memories of my dad’s dark room, and I love using images that I own in my post.

Everyone needs a creative outlet and photography happens to be one of mine.  I do manage to fit in a little bit of yoga, art classes, and tennis from time to time to keep my stress levels balanced.

Home is where my heart is even when I’m a 100,000 miles away.  It’s a challenge managing life on the road, volunteering, and supporting my family, but I get it done.  Well, most of the time. My family and friends are a tremendous help and they continue to keep me grounded.

  1. Great to learn more about you! I am from the Northeast also! Born in NYC but lived in Jamaican until I was 10. And I have lived in ATL for 2 1/2 years! I am a travel blogger as well as you know but wish I had the connection of working in the industry! 🙂

  2. Hi Katrina!

    I’m with Noirebnb, a home sharing app and website that provides a more inclusive space for travelers. Check it out:

    I love the post of Downtown Disney Review! We’re the new kids in town, and making plans to launch our full efforts in August [shh, it’s still a secret!].

    How can we be of service? We’re building our presence in social media, and have been featured on USA Today, Forbes, Buzzfeed, New York Times and more.

    Would love to chat with you about a potential blog post, would you be game to discuss later this week?
    Let me know!

  3. Thanks Katrina for posting my book on your Instagram page! I LOVE your page, it’s so inspiring. I am a little behind the eight ball when it comes to setting up my own Instagram but when I get the message I want to communicate, I will. So glad to have met you and I’m definitely going to keep in touch. 🙂

    1. It was a pleasure meeting you as well. Cant wait to finish reading your book! Thank you for sharing so much of your journey with me. It was inspiring!

    1. Hi Maya! Have support. A partner, parent, sister, or nanny/sitter. You need the help. Many F/A’s opt to move closer to family for this very reason. Having a support system at home for your family can really make the difference between a great career or stressful job.
