Mom to Follow: Angela Santoro, Healthy Family Expo

This week’s Mom to Follow is Angela Santoro, co-founder of the Healthy Family Expo. She loves her North Shore life with her husband and two young daughters.

As she puts it: “Like every other busy mom these days, I struggle to find a happy balance between work and play. But I’m lucky to be surrounded by people that push me to get outside and enjoy the amazing array of options right at my doorstep. Small steps and simple solutions to active, healthy, eco-friendly living is what the Healthy Family Expo is all about, and I’m living proof that small steps are the best way to get closer to your dreams!”
