Money. Work. Life.

That’s what I write about here on Chief Mom Officer. I’m a mom to three wonderful active boys (13, 9, and 1 1/2), who also works full time in IT for a large company. I’ve been reading about personal finance as a hobby since I was a teenager and am a die-hard Boglehead. I received my MBA several years ago by going part-time while having young children. I enjoy coming up with frugal, creative, fun things to do together as a family. And a few years back, our family was saved by my good financial habits when my husband almost died of septic shock.

My mission: I want to help working moms everywhere take control of their financial, work, and family life. I love reading personal finance blogs, but most I found were written by men or women with no (or very young) children. I also enjoy blogs about motherhood, but many of my favorites are written by stay at home or work at home moms. Since I couldn’t find a voice talking about full-time work outside the home moms of older children managing their financial, work, and family lives, I decided to start the conversation. I hope you’ll join in! Follow me on Twitter at @LizOfficer, or e-mail questions to Thanks for stopping by!
