About Us

The Chester County Moms Blog is a community website dedicated to providing you with more local information in five minutes than in five hours of surfing the web.




Sarah is a long time resident of Chester County, mother of two and a self proclaimed "blog-a-holic". After a long career in sales & finance management, Sarah "retired" from the business world to stay at home with her children and started blogging in 2007 after the birth of her second child as a way to stay connected to family and friends spread out throughout the United States. Merging her new life of "Mommyhood" with her sales expertise, in the summer of 2008, Sarah launched Chester County Moms (chestercountymoms.com), a regional "Mommy Blog" for women living in Chester County where moms can find information on local events, activities, products and fun places to go with their kiddos. In October 2008, Sarah and the Chesco Mommy Bloggers participated in the GM Ride & Drive to the Blog Her Reach Out Tour in Boston. In May of 2009, Sarah appeared alongside her friend and fellow Chesco Mommy Blogger, Shannon, on a local ABC segment on the influence of Mommy Bloggers. In June 2009, Sarah and Shannon, launched Montco Moms (montcomoms.com), a regional blog for moms in Montgomery County. Sarah is a Social Media Consultant, Cookie Magazine "Queen Bee" blogger, Regular contributor to The Savvy Grouse, member of The Philly Mommy Bloggers and the Organizer of The Chester County Mommy Bloggers. When not blogging, Sarah enjoys crafting, traveling, shopping, surfing the ‘net and spending time with her husband, children and their dog Duke.
