About Me

Hey there! I’m Jennifer, a Brooklyn girl currently living in New Jersey with with my husband and two daughters. I’m so happy you stopped by my little corner on the web today.  

Several years ago, I left behind a successful career in chemical engineering to pursue entrepreneurship- and I haven’t looked back since. Engineer Mommy is a journey of my life, my recipes, my crafts, my family and more. Instead of designing chemical plants, I now design & run an efficient, functional household! I guess you could say I went from chemical engineer to domestic engineer!

I’m an avid DIYer with a passion for transforming something basic & boring into something fabulous & chic, such as this side table made from copper pipes and wood.

I’m also a devoted mommy trying to make my girls smile with a wide-eyed fascination for everyday life. The kids really loved this Spiderman movie night complete with spiderweb-themed sugar cookies.

I share so much of myself on social media: the good, the bad and the ugly. It’s not always easy or natural for me to put myself out there, but honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I have met so many amazing people over the years and I’ve received so many positive vibes!

Some Random Facts About Me

  • I was the valedictorian of my high school! Even though I’m not currently working as an engineer, I’ll always consider myself a science/math geek at heart. My favorite subject from school was calculus!
  • I definitely have a Type-A personality. I am typically early for appointments and I am a bit of a workaholic. I’m always working on giving myself more slack and accepting less than perfect outcomes.
  • I write with my left hand, but I do everything else (throw a ball, handle scissors, etc.) with my right hand.
  • My husband was my high school sweetheart. We have two daughters, Sophia & Charlotte.
  • I grew up in a Yankees household and I married a lifelong Mets fan. I don’t really have a personal preference between the two teams though.
  • Sunglasses are one of my things. I have more pairs than I will ever need, but in my defense, many of my pairs are super affordable.

I hope you learned a bit more about me today. If you want to keep up with my everyday adventures, be sure to follow me on Instagram. I update my story there several times per day!
