BLOG

Blog posts for Derby Lane Dreams.

This blog is a lifestyle website that encompasses lots of subjects.

Like, home decor and styling, health and wellness, fitness, and family time.

Also, travel, vacations, seasonal decor, and so much more.

In the past, I worked in accounting, payroll, and office management for 10 years at the University of Georgia.

Then, I changed direction, went back to school, and became a Registered Nurse in Labor and Delivery and Women’s Wellness Services.

Along the way, I started my lifestyle blog, Derby Lane Dreams, as a way to connect with other moms out there in the blogosphere.

This blog was started by Jen Shugart.

She is a Registered Nurse, Wife, Mom to three kids and 2 fur babies.

Additionally, she is a blogger and content creator, health and wellness freelance writer, and lover of all things beautiful.

Currently, her plan is to provide women with clear, relevant, and relatable health, fitness, and nutritional information so they can live longer and healthier lives.

I would love to chat with you about how we can work together or collaborate!
