Lisa Hanson and Heather Kempskie are identical twins whose successful careers in child-related professions and experiences raising their own young children have given them the know-how to bring The Playdate Busy Book to parents of multi-age children everywhere.
Lisa has more than a decade of experience in the teaching-field and holds a Masters in Creative Arts in Learning. Currently, she works as a third-grade teacher at Hopedale Memorial Elementary school in Hopedale, MA. Heather is the former editor of Parents & Kids, a monthly parenting magazine serving the suburbs of greater Boston, and is now director of children programming at New England Chapel. They live in Bellingham, MA with their husbands and children, keeping their families just about as close as the sisters were growing up.
