About Us

Hello and welcome, we are so glad you're here!

I'm Caitlin, Co-founder of happyly and CEO, mom of Hanah, step-mom to Max and Lizzy, wife to Thomas, daughter of Darlene and John, sister to John, Kevin, Brian, Jason, Eaghmon, Liam and Nora, sister in law to Maggie, Tammy, Susan, Michele, Randi, Renee, Bear and Katja and aunt to twenty one beautiful people. Following a rewarding career in the corporate world in technology, my heart called me to do something different, and ultimately I found my purpose in happyly.

By way of background, as a new mom I struggled to plan fulfilling days for my daughter consistent with the values I hold most dear and became obsessed with creating a positive space for families to feel inspired to live their best life.. Through the development of happyly, pairing intuitive technology with the first-hand knowledge of an amazing team of ambassadors, we are proud to share an app and website designed to help families discover and explore the world together without hours spent researching and stumbling to find reliable information. 

Our team is passionate about serving your family, in your home town or while you travel. We have personally vetted and curated content in 30+ cities across the US with new cities coming. We seek out the best local hikes, bike rides, stroller walking & running paths, playgrounds, parks, rainy day activities, seasonal activities, kid-friendly restaurants, convenient family road trips, camping spots, and so much more. 

We write about and share those that are worthy of the happyly stamp of approval, establishing us as the most comprehensive family planning tool available with consistent reviews you can trust. All the resources you need are now in one place and it is our mission to help you spend less time planning, and more time experiencing life together. 

Happyly is a labor of love, and we are so grateful for your company on this amazing, humbling journey.
