At the Helm of the Mothership –
Meet the Creator of the Momiverse
& the Flight Crew

Charmin Calamaris | Chief Executive Navigator |
Founder, Publisher & Editorial Director

Charmin_2014_bwWhen Charmin’s two little boys were only five months old and two years old, her strong desire to focus more on her family —rather than her 12-year career in land use and environmental policy — motivated her to think about a career change. Add to that two high risk pregnancies, two preemie babies, and a few serious health issues and life events and Charmin was forced to put her type-A personality on the back burner and begin taking better care of herself. She learned that taking time and making time for herself allowed her to be a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and citizen. This was the catalyst for creating the Momiverse.

Charmin loves being a mom and finds the job pretty awesome and demanding, but it doesn’t consume all of her. When she isn’t being a mom and working on the Momiverse she enjoys turning off her smartphone and laptop, spending quality time with her family and friends, the occasional girl’s night out or weekend trip away, fly-fishing, and travel. Charmin lives in Colorado where she and her family spend as much time as possible exploring the Rocky Mountains. And thanks to her 10 and 8 year old boys, she knows more than she ever wanted to know about LEGO Ninjago.

Danielle Hughes | Chief Word Navigator | Contributing Editor

ContributorSixteen years of professional writing is a long time, but luckily Danielle loves what she does. Her passion for the written word knows no bounds and can be attributed to growing up with a “know-it-all” attitude whereby, she really needed to know it all. A voracious reader and pop culture consumer, Danielle is just as likely to read Brontë as she is Rowling. And she rarely leaves home without a copy of the latest Entertainment Weekly.

Her extensive client list includes: Discovery Channel, Nickelodeon and Nick at Nite, Barnes and Noble, iVillage, National Geographic, House Party, truTV, A&E, Metacafe, Direct Marketing Educational Foundation, TLC, Thomson Reuters, Catalyst Inc., Animal Planet and ABC — to name a few. On top of her consumer experience, she also has a knack for business-to-business content: media kits, sell sheets, presentations, press releases, advertising, direct mail, websites, brochures and more.

When she’s not wordsmithing, Danielle can be found on the tennis court, where she is a ranked USTA player, spending time with her son and honing her evolving love affair with wine.
