Hi, I’m Jeanne, mom to twin girls born in July 2014 and their baby brother born in November 2016. I live in Longmeadow, Massachusetts with my children, husband, and our dog Lucy. For over 12 years I worked as a process engineer in the food and chemical manufacturing industry. In March 2021 I decided to start my own business. I now work from home on my blog, help small business owners grow their online business through SEO, and do technical writing. It’s a big change, but I am loving it.

I started Have Twins First to share my parenting experiences in hopes of helping other parents of babies, toddlers, and twins. I have had the unique experience of feeding my babies (twins included) in almost anyway possible from exclusively pumping, exclusively breastfeeding, using formula to supplement, and feeding only formula. I have written many tips for feeding babies taken from my unique experience.

I am also OBSESSED with baby gear. For whatever reason, I am just very passionate about it. Given this passion, it’s not surprising that some of our most popular posts are the detailed baby registry checklists and twin baby registry checklist.

Have Twins First has been featured in Babygaga and Speech Blubs. It was also selected as a top 50 mom blog by Brand Ballot in 2018 and as a top 10 raising twins blog by Feedspot in 2021.

To tell you just a little bit more about me I grew up in the Syracuse, NY area and I am a huge Syracuse Orange fan. I attended the University of Rochester for my undergraduate studies and I continued on to get my PhD in Chemical Engineering from Cornell University. I am a big sports fan and besides the Orange, I also cheer for the Buffalo Bills and New York Yankees.
