Justine is a staff writer at Raised Real, with experience writing for a variety of wellness and family-friendly brands ranging from Better Homes & Gardens to Men’s Health to Motherly. As a mother of one (with a second due in October!), she’s always on the search for the best mom hacks and solutions that help her family function at their very best–and she loves bringing her finds to Raised Real. Born in California and raised in the Midwest, Justine began her career and family in New York City before embracing the small town life in a Virginia suburb where she currently lives with her husband, children, and cocker spaniel-mix, Bogart. You can read more about her family’s adventures on her blog, stopmeifyouveheardthisone.com, or follow her on Instagram at @justinelorelle.
