Is there an Amazon Wishlist, or something where donations can be made? That van is my jam.

You have true grit!! ❤️🙏🙌🏻


Carmen, you are an amazing person!


Phenomenal. Inspiring. Well done.


I honestly loved hearing about your outreach work! I am constantly looking for ways to help the homeless -but unfortunately in our town, there aren't many opportunities. Keep up the good work!

Tubas and tuba players are absolutely sexy. I guess? I married a tuba player, lol. :)

And thank you for your stories. They make me happy whenever I need happy.

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
