Stephanie Flies of Plymouth is the founder and creator of City Mom Collective, a network of 80 sister sites across the country focused on relevant and transparent content created by local moms for local moms. She is pictured in her home office where she also hosts a podcast for the national site “Just Add Sprinkle: Celebrating Motherhood.”

A Plymouth mom of three has made it her mission to empower other moms with opportunities to start their own business, while providing local content and resources for other moms across the Twin Cities and beyond.

Twelve years ago, Stephanie Flies began a blogging site as a way to provide other moms in her community hyper-local resources and support and “to be a positive voice for motherhood.”


Stephanie Flies began blogging six months after giving birth to her first of three children. The Scottsdale-based blog created the blueprint for what would become 80 additional sister sites across the country, providing hyper-local content for moms, created by moms.


The Twin Cities Mom Collective offers local content for moms in and around the Twin Cities. It is among the 80 sister sites in the City Mom Collective network, which is owned by moms with content created by and for moms.
