Parenting, Family & Lifestyle

Beth started her blog, Petite Planet in 2007 to help families make healthier choices and to take eco-conscious baby steps toward changing the world. This led to her eight-year role as the Managing Editor of Inhabitots, a sustainable design and green living website dedicated to babies and families, during which she was featured as a green parenting expert on Mother Nature Network, Treehugger, American Express Open Forum, and in Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine.

After moving to San Diego, CA, Beth became the Southern California editor of the family website Red Tricycle for four years. During this role, she traveled extensively to local events, restaurants, resorts, museums, and theme parks to cover the best family activities in the region. She attended and reported on multiple, high-profile press events including the opening of Disneyland's Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and the unveiling of the LEGOLAND California Castle Hotel.

Additionally, Beth has been a contributing parenting writer for several websites including Apartment Therapy's Cubby,, Celebrity Baby Scoop, EcoSalon, StrollerTraffic, and Inhabitat.

Before having kids, Beth was a global travel writer who reported on the latest findings in health and wellness and the newest innovations and treatments at spa resorts. She has been hosted on assignment at resorts including Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara, Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa, Disneyland's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, Miraval Resort & Spa, Canyon Ranch, Mii Amo, and Fairmont Grand Del Mar, to name a few.
