How It Got Started
Petrina Burman formerly worked in the medical field for 13 years until she gave birth to her adorably delicious little boy. Without a second thought, she decided to stay home to raise her son and that's when she officially became The Walking Mombie (sleep deprived and craving caffeine.
Since the need to create and help others runs through her veins, she decided to make the best of both worlds and created The Walking Mombie blog. Through her writing, she is able to provide others with useful parenting, photography & blogging tips, ways to save money as well as creative ways to make money from home.
Petrina is also a graphic designer and photographer who loves spreading the creativity she gets from her "think folds" by creating extremely cute free printable's and other free goodies for good people.
She lives with her husband, son, her Great Dane who thinks he's a lap dog, an American Bully that thinks she's a Great Dane, two kitties and a Russian tortoise somewhere between Chicago & Milwaukee. When she isn't blogging you can find her chasing after her three-year-old, cleaning up his messes, crocheting, taking pictures, reading, or catching up on sleep.
About The WalkingMombie
A few extra interesting fun facts about myself:
Prior to my son, I used to stunt ride tandem (in a controlled, safe environment) and definitely something I would like to get back into!
I'm a Christmas baby and I hate it! Though born on Christmas, my favorite holiday since being a little girl is Halloween.
I LOVE photography and wouldn't know what to do without my camera. My favorite area's: Fast action photography & nature.
I'm the BIGGEST & MOST dedicated Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, & Better Call Saul fan you will ever meet (I know, I know, I'm a geek with a capital "G"...don't you judge! )
I love comic books and superheroes.
I've had my ups & downs with prenatal & postpartum depression and I'm not embarrassed to share that with anyone. I have made it my passion to help raise awareness and support for mother's suffering with maternal mental health issues. Writing is my therapeutic outlet and part of the reason that I blog.
I love humor and laughing, it just makes my soul happy.
