wife • mom • teacher • website designer • self care advocate • sometime crafter | empowering entrepreneurs
Officially married to medicine because my husband is a plastic surgery resident due to complete training in summer 2021. We were married on the beach in the Outer Banks of North Carolina in June 2011.
Our son Carter was born March 8, 2016 and our daughter Charlotte was born June 11, 2019. I was pretty convinced I was going to be surrounded by dudes forever… stomping in creeks, going to car shows, listening to stinky feet humor, the whole #boymom life. When we found out Charlotte was joining us, I got just a tiny bit excited. I’m sure she’ll love to do all those things too, but maybe she’ll want to wear ruffles with me while doing it.
My Carter man is a sweet, sensitive little soul. He can be wild and has a ton of energy, but I have a feeling he’s going to be a gentle giant. I watch him wait so patiently to take turns on the play ground. I love listening to the sweet way he soothes his sister.
But Charlotte? She’s feisty! Right out of the gate, there was just a spark about her. I wasn’t sure I was going to survive her for the first six months. In truth, I think Carter will be the one having his little sister chase the bullies away. For now, she’s just determined to keep up with her big brother.⠀
I taught ten years of elementary education, spent mostly in third grade. I had always wanted to be a teacher and loved working with those kiddos. I also maintained a teacher-blog and curriculum store, Ms. Fultz’s Corner. I resigned from teaching in 2014 to pursue my own small business goals and start our family but I still consider myself a teacher at heart. I like to think that I’m still helping kiddos via my curriculum store, while saving teachers valuable time too.
Website Designer + Brand Consultant
Being a perfectionist, I taught myself a lot while creating my own website and curriculum materials. I began offering this service to friends and word of mouth turned it into a side gig. I now design primarily for WordPress, but also do some Blogger jobs, at Design by Christi. Giving others a platform to share their talents with others has been a rewarding ripple effect to watch. I officially opened Plaid Apple Ltd. in January 2012 to house these growing companies.
Self Care Advocate
If you want DIY self care via affordable manicures, I’m your girl. I can also hook you up with some pretty epic wellness supplements that keep my immune system and energy levels up. I’ve found simple health + beauty options that make sense in this sometimes chaotic #momlife of mine.
My friends tease me that there probably isn’t anything I don’t do at this point, but working on Pinterest projects is much cheaper than therapy. Sewing baby items, working on home projects, a brief stint in baking, hobby photography. I like to use the creative side of my brain to balance out my type 1 tendencies.
