Jessica McFadden Writes About Family Fun

Jessica McFadden is the writer of the Washington, DC and parenting blog, A Parent in Silver Spring, and the lifestyle blog for parents everywhere, A Parent in America.

Jessica McFadden is a mother of three children who loves providing her fellow Washington, DC-area parents with ideas for fabulous family activities, knowledge about local resources, useful information and entertainment. The goal of Jessica’s content on A Parent in Silver Spring and A Parent in America is to motivate readers to laugh or try something new, and find greater joy in their own families.

A member of the mom blogging world since January 2008, Jessica and her blogs have been featured in Forbes, The Washington Post, CNN, The Washington Post Express, Maryland Life, and other publications. In addition to mothering and publishing her websites, Jessica works as a writer of informative and humorous parenting articles.

Jessica is also a seasoned on-air personality and frequent television guest on family and home topics. As a representative of 50 Floor, she appears every Monday and Wednesday morning on Let’s Talk Live and each Tuesday and Thursday on Great Day Washington.

Jessica describes herself as a carpooling, bass-booming Washington, D.C. area wife and mom to three energetic children: Charlie (age 13), Eve (age 11) and Alice (age 6). Her husband Chris is an IT professional, involved dad and supportive of her online career.

A California native who moved to DC to work on Capitol Hill for a U.S. Senator, she moved on to working in public relations for corporate and public affairs clients. After the birth of her first child in 2003 she transitioned to freelance writing and consulting.

Jessica’s life’s passions are her family and the Washington, DC area, and her favorite activities are trying new outings, writing, discovering getaways for DC families and couples, entertaining, accessible fashion, affordable beauty and home design. Jessica embraces blogging because it allows her to combine those loves in an innovative way.

Jessica loves libraries, live music, early American literature, period dramas, loud dinner parties, Hitchcock’s films, Smithsonian Institutions, wooded trails, beach vacations, overpriced jeans, flea markets, Real Simple, ELLE Decor, board games and Sauvignon Blanc.
