About

11226919076_ca905fdef8.jpgThe goal of Active Mama is to inspire moms to be active – to be social, to be involved, to be engaged, and to be fit. While chronicling the life of one very social toddler, we also seek to feature product reviews, mom talk, parenting discussions and what it’s like to live in Vancouver, BC.

ActiveMama.com is written by Arieanna Schweber, mom to a very outgoing boy of “almost 5″, Aiden, and 2-year old Damien. Arieanna received her a Bachelor of Business Administration from Simon Fraser University in 2004, with a focus on Marketing. She began corporate blogging in 2005, soon after taking the dive to be a professional blogger.

After becoming Canada’s first female professional blogger, she continued to write online and speak at events such as BlogHer. Perhaps best known for her work in b5media, where she managed a team of 30+ writers covering 70+ entertainment blogs, Arieanna also runs a Vancouver-based consulting service providing social media development and ongoing corporate writing services. Arieanna has been an active public speaker since 2005 including engagements at BlogHer and Northern Voice and is author of the e-book “Communities that Rock: Creating Kick-Ass Online Communities.”

Arieanna became a parent in October 2009 and decided to become a stay-at-home-mom, only working part-time. Not long after, she launched Active Mama, which soon became a regionally-known brand focused on having an active family life in the community and abroad. ActiveMama was recognized by VancouverMom.ca as a Top Vancouver Mom Blog in 2011. In May 2012, Arieanna and husband Ianiv welcomed second son Damien to the family.
