The editors of Mamanista.com have been friends since college, bonding over an interest in philanthropy, women’s issues, and education…and chocolate. When Candace’s daughter was born with a congenital heart defect, these college buddies decided to collaborate again to share their favorite baby products and raise money for heart charities. Combining Candace’s career in writing and Debbie’s experience in online marketing and their passion for motherhood, they launched Mamanista.com.
