CrissyI tried to curl my tongue. You might not be laughing because you assume I was very young and little kids getting hurt isn’t funny. I was 16 years old. Go ahead laugh. I still do just telling the story.

Hi! My name is Clarissa and I am the founder of I have 3 children and I married my husband in 2012. Before I met my husband I was a single mom while working full time. I stayed home after my youngest son was born because I couldn’t stand the thought of being away from him. My husband supported this decision and I resigned from my position after being in the pharmaceutical industry for 8 years.

I started A Smarter Woman because my husband suggested it. Seriously. He bought the website way before he told me about it. I went back to work briefly because I was going stir crazy sitting home. I missed the adult interaction. My husband would come home from work and I’d be sitting at the door like a kitten who wanted to play. My time back in the work force didn’t last long at all. It’s like it wasn’t meant to be. So I stayed home. I still wanted something to do so that is when my husband told me about A Smarter Woman. I love it. I have a lot of fun researching new topics and trying to help people. I want to inspire women to live happy and be healthy and share what I’ve learned being a single mom, wife, step mom and now blogger.

I know we will have lots of good times together!
