Ondria Witt, CEO
Mommy's Block Party

Welcome to Mommy's Block Party! I am Ondria- wife to Sacha and mommy to 'B' (12), Bean (6), and Baby C (15 mo). I am thirty-something years old and passionately manage Mommy's Block Party and care for my spunky kids. I'm a coffee addict and enjoy Pilates, and music of all genres. I love organizing, arranging, cleaning, decorating, cooking, and doing just about anything that makes a dwelling place an enjoyable home for families.

I began Mommy's Block Party in 2011 after I became a mom. I wanted a way to connect moms with the brands & products they've been using for years, and to those, they may not even know of. As parents, we want the best for our families, and MBP aims to share honest reviews about products, services, attractions, accommodations, restaurants, and more so our readers can make informed decisions when it comes to what they spend their hard-earned money on. Through the years, we've become a trusted source for information surrounding household products, fashion & beauty, travel, food & beverages, project ideas, fitness, and more. We believe in 'word of mom' advertising- online & offline. Mommy's Block Party offers various ways to connect consumers with brands & fun opportunities for families, including:

Product Reviews & Sponsored Giveaways
Travel, Entertainment, Restaurant Reviews
Business Directory & Social Media Advertising
Sponsored Posts

Brand Ambassadorship
Press Release Publication
and more.

Fun Facts...

I enjoy freelance writing, and also blog at PROMOSPRO.

I'm married to a wonderful man, Sacha (AKA- Aleksandr), who is a graduate of The University of Maryland School of Music, with an MM- specializing in bass trombone performance.
We are both extremely active in serving at our church- St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church. It is like a second home to both of us (it's where we met & became friends in the youth group over 15 years ago), and we spend a lot of time there during the week... and on the weekends.

We're new to the parenting thing... so come along on our journey as we laugh, cry & experience the ups and downs of parenthood together.

Hi! I am Angela Galloway. I am super excited to be a part of Mommy’s Block Party! I am married to an amazing man that loves me in spite of my flaws and we have three amazingly unique children, 20, 18, and 14.

I grew up a preacher's kid and fell in love with Jesus at an early age. In my adult years, I have been a daycare teacher, preschool director, homeschool mom, elementary teacher, and Montessori guide. I am so thankful for the blessings of watching young minds learn. My hubby is a teacher too but on the college level teaching history and humanities.

We, as a family, have been on quite the adventure through some high highs and some low lows. Through it all, I learned what it truly means to love my children unconditionally and to encourage them to live their lives authentically.

We enjoy cooking, movies, playing games, graphic design, and traveling. My favorite things are my faith, my family, my friends, coffee, eating good food, and photography. I look forward to sharing my passions with you.

Susan Jackson, Contributor

Hi Everyone! I currently reside in Wilmington, NC, where I spend my days figuring out how to impact the lives of children, youth, and their families serving as a youth director at St. Paul's Lutheran church.

I am passionate about my undergrad institution, Lenoir- Rhyne University, including LR Football, the A Capella Choir, and its alumni program. While I don't consider myself a history buff, I like learning about the past history, culture, and people of the places I travel too. Wilmington is full of history and I'm still learning lots of it!

Some of my favorite places to visit include Vero Beach, FL, Biltmore Estate in Asheville, and all things related to NC/SC coastal towns. My travel addiction has also led me to be a Disney addict, and I one day would love to go to the resort in Hawaii! When I'm not chasing leading children/ teens in programming, I try to take time to read, bake, or visit the beach. I look forward to sharing life with you!

Alicia Carpenter, Contributor

Hi all! I am Alicia Carpenter! I have been married to my husband Caleb for 7 years and we share two children - (6) and (4).

Although I currently reside in Salisbury, NC, I have lived all over the country for the past 10 years- New York City, Nebraska, and back to North Carolina, the state where I was raised. I love learning about and taking part in different cultures I am immersed in wherever I go, but I especially enjoy the food I am introduced to as I explore! 

I graduated from Western Carolina University with a degree in Forensic Science and a concentration in Biology. Although I’ve never worked in my field of study, I get to teach forensic science (along with biology and math) in a local Christian high school.

My family and I spend a lot of time in the kitchen baking and cooking together. Making memories are my favorite as I am grateful for any I get to share with my little people. I treasure the close relationship we have and savor every moment, for I know time is a gift, but also passes too quickly.

I’m excited for the opportunity to share my life and experiences with you all through Mommy’s Block Party! 

Jessie Paul, Contributor

Hi! I’m Jessie. I am a woman of action - I rarely like to think or talk about something for very long without taking action in some way - so I love writing because it gives me an actionable outlet for my thoughts and experiences. 

I love writing for Mommy’s Block Party because I get to share my life experiences with others and I like to share the good and the “real” of my life. I think that we enrich each other’s lives by hearing each other’s story and finding ways to identify with one another. I hope to be able to speak truth in love and offer a side of humor to go with that truth (my dream job is actually to be a comedian…so I gotta get my jokes in somewhere…).

I have three kiddos who are 8, 6 and 5 years old - we have just graduated from the preschool/toddler phase and now are moving into the core childhood years. I hope to help them grow and develop into fabulous pre-teens for our next act!

I’m married to a man who loves me more than I can understand why and who is a legit partner and *actual* Dad. We have been married for 11 years, going on 12!

I depend on God’s grace daily and momentarily and inherently. I look forward to connecting with you through Mommy’s Block Party and hope to offer you some great content! Thanks for reading!
