Lauren DuVilla has more than a decade of experience leading editorial teams at digital lifestyle publications and newsletters, including DailyCandy, Time Out, and Greatist, where she earned three Webby Awards for social content.

Managing Editor & Senior Travel Editor, Kate Loweth,

Kate Loweth has been a passionate travel writer for nearly a decade, dragging her three kids all over the US and as far as Tahiti. She knows what families want, whether they are traveling with toddlers or teens, and loves nothing more than when one of her travel stories inspires readers to take a trip with their kids. Her home is in the San Francisco Bay Area, but her heart is always on the next trip to come.

She brings a decade of experience in the parenting and lifestyle world to her role as the senior lifestyle editor for Tinybeans, all while figuring out her own journey as a mom of two. An avid reader with a penchant for true crime podcasts, she lives in Dallas, TX with her family.

Regional Editor, Allison Sutcliffe, 

A Midwestern transplant turned PNW lifer, Allison Sutcliffe transitioned from the classroom to writing when she became a mom. She’s spent the last decade creating compelling content across a variety of digital parenting platforms, encouraging families to connect with each other and their communities. When she’s not banging away at the keyboard, you can find her off adventuring with her three kids, cueing up a true crime podcast, or enjoying a quiet cup of coffee—although that last one is kind of a stretch.

Calendar Events & Updates Editor, Taylor Clifton,

Taylor Clifton, a lover of the written word, began her career in book publishing at BHC Press. She moved to Highlights magazine afterward, which began her journey into children’s publishing. Now at Tinybeans, she helps run the national events calendar and updates articles across every category. She can be found curled up with a book or notebook or lounging on a Lake Michigan beach.
