Hi, I'm Erika.  I'm originally from New England and moved to Carlsbad almost 5 years ago.  My family and I are enjoying the weather, laid back beach community and lots of family fun here.  When I am not watching my son's hockey games, or dance routines, you will find me exploring tidepools at the beach with my family.

Hi, I'm Jodi. I am the mom to 3 adults (1 son and 2 daughters), 2 grandsons and 2 dogs (a Labradoodle-Jeter and a Goldendoodle-Diggs). I love spending time with them and you can typically find us together playing Cribbage or Carbles on the weekends. I am a hockey mom through and through. I have been to many states traveling with my family to watch my kids/grandkids play hockey, I love to support my kids and I love all the fun local events. I really enjoy my job with Macaroni Kid.
