About Me

sheri high res headshotI am Sheri McDonald. I live in Southwestern Ontario and I am happily married to Michael. We have one daughter and three sons who range in age from six to twenty-one.

I am a Canadian Lifestyle Blogger, a Travel Blogger, a Brand Ambassador, a Social Media Influencer, a Spokesperson and an amateur photographer. I have been blogging at Kidsumers since August 2010. Prior to that I blogged at Teens, Tweens and Drama Queens, which was eventually amalgamated with Kidsumers.

Prior to discovering my place online, I was a Social Worker. I primarily worked with people living with disabilities, and for several years I ran a municipal support services agency. My love of art eventually lead me to start a niche print publication for artists, which I operated with a partner while continuing to work in social work. It was a valuable experience where I gained knowledge around design, marketing, advertising and promotion.

Kidsumers (a play on the word ‘consumers’) is a mom and lifestyle blog that focuses on family, parenting, food and family travel. I write about products and experiences that will be interesting and relevant to my readers. I engage with my readers in my blog comments and also through my various social media accounts.

Each year I partner with brands and destinations that meet my standards for what I would like to share with my readers. Some recent brand relationships include:

  • Today’s Parent Approved Blogger
  • Frigidaire Ambassador
  • P&G Mom
  • Spokesperson for Pampers Kandoo
  • Hamilton Beach Ambassador
  • Orange Naturals Ambassador

Recent Press Trips/Media Travel:

  • Southern California
  • Pensacola, Florida
  • Disney Social Media Moms 2013, Orlando, Florida
  • Wasaga Beach
  • TMS Family Travel Conference, Niagara Falls, New York
  • Global Resort Homes, Kissimmee, Florida
  • Universal Studios/Royal Caribbean, Florida; St. Thomas; St. Maarten
  • Travelocity.ca, Orlando
  • P&G Science of Sleep, Cincinnati
  • Albuquerque, New Mexico

I recently became a contributor at Traveling with Kids.
