From the chronicles of bedtime struggles with a toddler: My 3-year-old once explained to me that she didn't need to close her eyes because crocodiles sleep with one eye open.
Ashlee Neuman is the content director at The Bump, overseeing the ideation and execution of all digital editorial content. Before assuming the role of content director, she served as senior editor and then deputy editor at The Bump. She brings more than a dozen years of experience in content creation to the table, plus first-hand knowledge of the highs, lows and unexpected zigzags of birthing and raising tiny humans. When she's not editing articles about pregnancy and parenting, she's usually being climbed on or called for by her little ones—that, or trying to find a quiet corner in the house to read a book.
Ashlee earned her Master's of Science degree in magazine journalism at Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in New York City. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Skidmore University in Saratoga Springs, New York, with a major in English and minor in Italian.
When she snagged her first journalism job at a Colorado newspaper, she never would have predicted her career would lead her to specialize in family and parenting content. But after five years of hitting the pavement as a local newspaper reporter, she went on to develop content around the importance of play for the Toy Association and family health and wellness for Kiwi Magazine, until her path led her to The Bump in 2016. As a spokesperson for the brand, Ashlee has appeared on national TV and has been quoted in outlets such as New York Magazine, NBC News, The Guardian, The Philadelphia Inquirer and more.
