Beth joined the team in November 2021 and is happy to bring her writing skills and meticulous proofreader’s eye to the pages of Main Line Parent. She has a keen interest in web publishing and enjoys learning new technologies to present compelling content and images.

KRISTEN MICUCCI, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER

A transplant from North Jersey, Kristen quickly fell in love with the charm of Philly and all of the city’s many offerings. Using her background in sales, she strives to connect with and spread the word of local businesses to support Philly’s ever-growing and diversifying families. When she isn’t wrangling her 5-year old, you can most likely find her walking around Port Richmond with her pup, perusing the shelves at Riverwards Produce, or getting ready for the arrival of the newest member of her family!
