Big news! East Memphis Moms is under new management!

After 13 years of running locally-focused mom websites, I’ve decided to head in a new direction. And after two years of running this site from my new home in the Dallas area it’s become clear to me that Memphis deserves to have a local mom running the site again.

Meet Sally Fienup!

Sally Fienup (LinkedIn) and her husband Chris live in East Memphis with their two daughters who are almost six and almost three. Sally was born and raised in Pennsylvania and moved to Memphis in 2006. After marrying a Memphian in 2009, she now considers herself a permanent transplant. Sally is a Realtor, yoga instructor, and member of the Junior League of Memphis. She enjoys taking walks at Shelby Farms with her daughters and two dogs, and eating out all over Memphis.

Sally and I will be working closely together over the next several weeks to make sure she is completely comfortable with all the aspects of running East Memphis Moms. I’m confident you won’t see any negative changes to EMM with Sally. What you WILL get is someone who is local, passionate about what Memphis has to offer families, has girls (!), and a fresh perspective on what moms in the East Memphis area want to know about. I am really excited for her, for Memphis, and for ME.

Thank you for your continued support of East Memphis Moms. When I stop and think I’m really amazed at what I built, happy I could create something I know is so useful to so many moms, and overall feel very accomplished and proud. My boys were two and seven when I founded this website in 2011, six months after moving to Memphis. They are now eight and 13 and are thriving here in Texas. We will always have a warm spot in our hearts for Memphis. It’s a special place.
