Mollie Protzman


Mollie is an Omaha native and a mom of two boys ages 13 and 8. She's been married for 20 years and spent most of those first 10 years living in various cities around the country.

Before kids, she was in marketing communications and public relations and then stayed home with her boys for 11 years while doing freelance writing on the side. The day after her youngest one went to kindergarten, she just about went berserk with the quiet in the house and nothing constructive to do. Luckily, a local graphic/web design company took her in as their part-time jack-of-all trades.

She now balances her life with work, husband, kids, volunteering at school and other civic organizations and relishes the time when she can be in the house with no one home. You can usually find her playing Scrabble on any electronic device available, hanging out and laughing with her friends and family, reading a good mystery or trashy beach novel, or at her tiny little cabin in east central Nebraska where all the craziness of everyday life easily slips away.

Mollie also writes for ParentSavvy on and blogs on her personal site at
