I am Just another Edmonton mommy, also known as Christine Bruckmann. It’s great to meet you!

Born and raised in Edmonton I am proud to call this wonderful city home. Kris is my husband, we are high school sweethearts and have been married for 8 years! We have 3 young children and they definitely keep us busy. 

My background is Social Work and for the last 7 years I have worked with adults with developmental disabilities as a Community Connector.  My main objective is to connect the individuals that I support to their community through employment, volunteerism, and recreation activites. 

With such a strong focus on the local community, my passions are engaging families and blogging about Edmonton’s life, events and other social happenings that are kid + family friendly. 

I also have a passion for sharing honest and authentic insights, tips, recipes, opinions and reviews that resonate with like-minded local moms and families.
