Mommy to Briana and Gia, Nicole Perrino started BronxMama in 2008 when she noticed the lack of resources for Bronx parents. She had no idea how big BronxMama would become, and is excited to see how much farther it will go. In addition to BronxMama, Nicole is also part of Windows of Hip Hop, a Bronx based economic development project promoting the educational, communal, and historical perspective of Hip Hop. She also serves on the Board of Advisors for the Bronx Children’s Museum as a Parent Leader. In her free time she likes to host dinner parties and events with her hubby, Chef Geronimo.
Nicole also started The Bronx Bloggers, and is cofounder of #BronxAwesome, a series of events for Bronxites hosted with Acuator Inc.
Dalilah Smith-Santos is a mom to a gorgeous, intelligent and at times very stubborn 8 year old daughter named Dahlia and wife to Omar, the guy who keeps her laughing. To pay the bills she is an administrative assistant for a teen center, so her “Mama hat” is always on. Dalilah loves coffee, wine, reading, just about any show on Bravo & HBO but most of all spending time with her family and friends. When her daughter was born in 2005, mom websites were fairly new and she found there were few resources for parents raising children in the Bronx-so she often trekked to Manhattan for different activities and events with her baby. BronxMama.com is an awesome resource to Mama’s and she is so excited to be a contributor!
