About Us

Welcome to Katie's Korner!                         

Here you will find additional information and interviews on parenting and mom-related topics that don't necessarily fit into a business-sponsored category elsewhere on our Moms Everyday website. But they are still topics that I believe are very interesting, important, and relevant to moms like myself. We want our Moms Everyday website to become a valuable resource for moms throughout Western Wisconsin -- a place you can go to find the tools and knowledge you need through every stage of motherhood. Our goal is to give you as much information as we can to help make your life easier as a mom!
