Stephanie Wilbur Ash


Hot momma Stephanie Wilbur Ash writes and edits   things related to health and families for  Mpls.St.Paul Magazine , including the blog and popular e-newsletter JuiceBox (good stuff for families on the go), voted best e-newsletter in its class by the Minnesota Magazine & Publishers Association. She knew those four kids would come in handy! Find her getting her wiggles out at any of our Cities' indoor and outdoor playgrounds and water parks, and at any music venue fronting her a cappella goth rock cover band “Goth Mother." Or find her in her log cabin, built in 1866, rebuilt with three bathrooms and radiant floor heating—just like the pioneer families always dreamed.
