About The Publisher: Emily Papa

Hi again!!! So you want to know a little more? For the past going on 3 years, I have been a Stay at Home Mama of an 8-year-old girl and 4-year-old boy. While I believe I have the most AMAZING and rewarding job, I do miss using so many of the skills I've worked hard to acquire over the years. The most use my Forensics degree sees any more is investigating what foreign substance is stuck in my child's hair on any given day....

So I've been doing some meditation recently, seeking guidance on where my next steps should be. I'm not ready to go back to work full time for the man but I AM craving something to give me a little more purpose (and adult interaction). 

I fell in love with Macaroni Kid years ago when I was searching for local activities to do with my daughter and have been a subscriber ever since! I've always used the Mac Kid calendar and looked forward to receiving the weekly newsletter filled with things to do with kids in Pittsburgh, specifically in the South Hills where we live! When I opened up the newsletter last month and saw that MK needed a new publisher for the South Hills, I thought, man, I could rock that!!!

Born and raised in the South Hills, attending college in our beautiful city, I have always had a love for connecting with all things local. It always amazes me just HOW MANY things are going on around us that SO MANY people have NO idea about, and we always find out too late!

My hopes as your next Macaroni Kid publisher is to help enrich our local community by connecting YOU with the resources, events for kids and families in the 'Burgh, and inside scoop you didn't even know you were looking for yet ;) I want to do for you what the previous Mac Kid publishers have done for me and my family. 

Macaroni Kid South Hills covers Baldwin, Beechview, Bethel Park, Brentwood, Carrick, Castle Shannon, Clairton, Dormont, Duquesne, Homestead, McKeesport, Mt. Lebo, Mt. Washington, Munhall, Jefferson Hills, Pittsburgh, Pleasant Hills, South Park, South Side, West Mifflin, Whitehall and Upper St. Clair.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions- please e-mail me directly at emilyp@macaronikid.com. Have any current events coming up that you would like to add to the calendar? Please do so here
