Morgan Sheena

Morgan came to Boston via New Jersey for college and law school and never left. She married her college sweetheart, Solomon, in October 2007. After years of trying to find themselves, they added three beautiful and energetic children, Aaron (October 2010), Olivia (June 2013), and Jesse (May 2016) to the family. They also have brother and sister miniature schnauzers, Rufio and Gracie. They live in Brookline and love city living.  Morgan is also a travel planner at Whitney World Travel and loves helping her clients find the perfect vacation for them. Loves: Exploring Boston, traveling, trying new restaurants, all things Disney, dive bars, blanco tequila, cooking elaborate meals, black coffee, dry red wine, working out, watching mindless movies (and quoting them) and getting lost in a good book. Can't Stand: when people snap their gum, cigarettes, loud chewing noises, cleaning floors and snakes.

Hit a Homerun With the All Suites Brand

In addition to packing many bodies and all their STUFF into a room, traveling for sports comes with a whole lot of hurdles. Having enough space for everyone, feeding the team, stinky uniforms, finding space for team meetings, and making sure everyone is happy are just a few things that come to mind. I've been a fan of the All Suites brand by Hilton hotels for a long time because they are perfect for a big group.

How I Glow :: My First HydraFacial

What did I think? My skin felt soft and looked so much brighter. I also found it wasn't drinking up moisturizer like before. When I put on makeup a few days later for an event, it went on smoother than normal and stayed put! Other people noticed, too. My husband commented that I was looking so bright the next day. When I replied that I was wearing all black, he said I almost seemed to be glowing. It was the HydraFacial!

Childcare for Nurturing Early Learners :: Bright Horizons

As a mom of three who works from home, finding people who can take care of my children in a way that makes us all feel safe and secure is crucial.

Take Care of Mom :: My Staycation Alone

I've found that as a mom, I desperately need my alone time to decompress. Time completely and totally by myself to come back to me, to feel refreshed, and to be a better mom, wife, and person.
