Welcome to A Thrifty Diva Surviving Motherhood

Hola, my name is Michelle, I wear many hats as a mom of four and freelance writer. In 2010 I built a community dedicated to the modern mom and launched the blog A Thrifty Diva Surviving Motherhood. I have grown this site from an online diary to a corner of the web that supports parents and inspires moms. First and foremost I spend my days aiming to raise good human beings.

I am an experienced digital influencer with a demonstrated history of working with major brands. My goals in collaborating with brands are to not only promote them but to give my honest thoughts in long form freelance writing. I am skilled in Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Photography, Integrated Marketing, Advertising, and WordPress.

My husband and I are raising our three boys and daughter in the beautiful hill country right outside of San Antonio, Texas. Living just outside of the city keeps me intertwined with the city I grew up in and love.  

Join me on our journey of homeschooling, family travel and blogging about San Antonio, Texas.
