I’m A Republican Mom & I’m Voting For Hillary Clinton

The following post was written by Maressa Brown, as told to her by Holly, a 37-year-old mom of two from Pennsylvania.

About

Maressa Brown

Whether I'm reporting on women's health research by interviewing medical experts, doing one-on-one interviews with celebrities like Jennifer Garner or Selena Gomez, or creating in-depth, visually-appealing features on red carpet or fitness trends, my copy is conversational and substantive. I'm also a media-trained journalist comfortable being on-camera, having represented CafeMom's The Stir in both live and taped-to-air segments as host of "The Daily Stir" web series and a commentator on Good Morning America, HuffPost Live, and CafeMom's "Moms Matter" Google Hangouts series.
