100_1578Stephanie Sprenger is a freelance writer, music therapist, and mother of two young daughters. She writes about the imperfect reality of life with kids at her blog, Mommy, for Real. Her work has been featured on various websites, including Huffington Post, Mamalode, In the Powder Room, BlogHer, and Scary Mommy. Stephanie performed in the Denver production of Listen To Your Mother in May 2013, and she was honored to be named one of BlogHer’s 2014 Voices of the Year.

Stephanie is a board certified music therapist, and teaches early childhood music classes for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. She is in the process of creating a music-therapy based curriculum for educators and therapists who work with young children.

In her spare time, (haha) she enjoys practicing yoga, playing piano and guitar, snuggling with her two little girls while having an intense Frozen singalong, and occasionally singing grown-up songs. She is also an avid reader whose ideal day would involve a few good cups of coffee, some quality time with friends, a massage, a good book, and a glass (or two) of red wine. ¬†Stephanie’s longterm goals include writing a few books, crafting the perfect witty bio, and taming her neuroses. She can usually be found in front of her computer, behind her guitar, or underneath a pile of laundry. You can also find her on Facebook, Twitter, Google +, and Pinterest, but don’t expect to find her pinning any clever craft ideas or homemade baked good recipes.
