Warm greetings my fellow mamas! My name is Tanisha Foster, and I’m a Birmingham native. I absolutely love being in the Magic City! And I have enjoyed raising my children here. As a former teacher at the Advent Episcopal School with children who also attended, we have full access to so much that Birmingham offers. There is so much rich culture and history represented here, especially downtown. It truly is a magical place.
I am a proud wife to Brandon and together we share two beautiful children. I LOVE being a mom to our eight-year-old Carrington (Chop) and six-year-old Journey. They are new coauthors of a children’s book series. They adore snuggling up with mama and reading together.
In my early years of motherhood, navigating food allergies for my son was challenging and overwhelming. Labors of love coupled with our faith helped us through. Together our family works to bring awareness to food allergies with our organization Chop Friendly.
On this motherhood journey, I have been fortunate to have fit into many of the mama categories: working mama, stay-at-home mama, food allergy mama, mom-tee (mom/aunt), homeschool mama, classroom mama, and neighborhood mama. So, when you see me out with a big “S” on my cape, know that I’m proud that I’ve experienced all of it. Mothering is such a hard, yet rewarding, job no matter which category you identify with.
An educator at heart, I have spent numerous years educating (STEM) in the classroom as well as in the Birmingham metro community. Insight from other moms has greatly shaped me as an individual. I highly value the perspectives of others just as much as I enjoy sharing nuggets of love, encouragement, and wisdom.
Many moms come to me for advice, and I assist in helping and sharing personal and researched information to help them. I look forward to representing the amazing mothers in our community.
