The Editorial Team

Head of Editorial—Lauren DuVilla,

Lauren DuVilla loves to craft the voice and messaging that bring a brand’s vision to life. As the editorial director at Tinybeans, she’s doing just that, using her creative know-how to build a powerhouse resource for parents. Lauren DuVilla has more than a decade of experience leading editorial teams at digital lifestyle publications and newsletters, including DailyCandy, Time Out, and Greatist, where she earned three Webby Awards for social content. When she’s not busy brainstorming the most compelling angle for a story or campaign, she’s putting the world on pause and throwing impromptu living room dance parties attended by her husband and two young boys.

Senior Editor, Travel—Kate Loweth,

Kate Loweth has been a passionate travel writer for nearly a decade, dragging her three kids all over the US and as far as Tahiti. She knows what families want, whether they are traveling with toddlers or teens, and loves nothing more than when one of her travel stories inspires readers to take a trip with their kids. Her home is in the San Francisco Bay Area, but her heart is always on the next trip to come.

Senior Editor, Lifestyle—Gabby Cullen,

Gabby Cullen has worked in the media industry for over 15 years. Though she started out in public relations, her love of the written word brought her to the editorial side of things in 2009. She brings a decade of experience in the parenting and lifestyle world to her role as the senior lifestyle editor for Tinybeans, all while figuring out her own journey as a mom of two. An avid reader with a penchant for true crime podcasts, she lives in Dallas, TX with her family.

Senior Editor, Shopping—Kate Cartia,

Kate is a mom, former personal stylist, and occasional social media influencer. Five years of content creation for her own social media channel led her to developing a passion for parent humor, writing, and supporting fellow moms through their own unique journeys (even if it’s only with a joke). She’s been featured on BuzzFeed, Scary Mommy, TODAY, HuffPost, Funny or Die, The Bump, and more. With a deep love of shopping, a steady supply of Venti Oat Milk Lattes, and endless pieces of athleisure, she spends her days searching for the best retail must-haves, chasing her dogs, and convincing those she lives with that she didn’t throw away that thing she definitely threw away. She resides in Dallas, TX with her family.

Social Media Specialist, Nicole Pecoraro,

Nicole is a mom of three from the Chicago area who has spent the last five-plus years writing and curating a blog and social media space fiercely centered around advocating for LGBTQ+ youth. Her creativity and unique sense of humor previously earned her contracts with Netflix and Scary Mommy. Her written work has been published on Parents, Scary Mommy, Ravishly, TODAY Parents, Motherly, and elsewhere. Her creative content can be seen on HuffPost, Buzzfeed, TODAY, and others. When she’s not working, she can usually be found trying to locate a small child’s missing shoe and (occasionally) remembering to switch the laundry.

Bump & Baby Editor, Jessica Pollack Payne,

Jessica Pollack Payne has spent the past decade helping to grow the digital presence of national media brands through engaging content and rigorous SEO. She was previously the digital lead at Today’s Parent magazine, Canada’s largest national parenting brand, and HELLO! Canada, where she learned entirely too much about international royalty. After Jess had her first of two kids, she knew her days of interviewing celebrities were over and quickly pivoted to parenting. The goal was to help new parents like herself navigate this disorienting new world by providing answers to their many, many, many, many, many questions. When her six- and three-year-olds aren’t busy rejecting her latest culinary offerings, Jess and her husband love spending time with the kids outdoors and traveling as a family.
