I'm Francesca De Franco: graduate, wife, mother of three and, until recently, PR manager for Europe and South America's leading financial website.
I cut my teeth in hi-tech PR for a global agency but found my affection lay in, in-house work; talking and writing about products and concepts that I really cared about.
Following the birth of my twin daughters in September 2011 (when my eldest daughter was 2 and a half) I decided that I would finish work after my maternity leave as the sums for earnings and childcare costs just didn't add up.
I have my own parenting website called The Parent Social (www.theparentsocial.com) am a blogger for http://www.talkmum.com
My passion for communicating, writing, good food and fine dining, wine, Italy and Italian culture, investing and football (soccer) remains the same, but I'm now also passionate about being a good mum whilst still being me.
