About Kimberly Seals Allers

Author of "The Mocha Manual to a Fabulous Pregnancy"
& "The Mocha Manual to Turning Your Passion into Profit"

     
My name is KIMBERLY SEALS ALLERS,
and I am a mother. But my journey to motherhood was not your typical
one. Quite frankly, I never engaged in fanciful daydreams of pushing a
child out of my loins.

Growing
up in Queens, New York I was focused on one thing: becoming the black
Brenda Starr—a hot shot, headstrong reporter (minus the red hair) who
traveled the world scooping stories and breaking hearts.

That
dream led me to New York University where I received my degree in
journalism and secondary English education, and then into the rough and
tumble waters of New York’s media scene, where I worked as a reporter
for Fortune magazine, then as the Wall Street writer for the New York
Post, including a stint in London as a writer for The Times, another
NewsCorp publication. My time in London allowed me to travel
extensively — making stops all over France, Italy, Spain, Hong Kong,
and Scotland (where I would later get married).

In 2003, I returned to Fortune as a writer, and later joined Essence magazine as Senior Editor, personal

 

 
finance and careers. All the while, still continuing to freelance for magazines like Real Simple, Essence, Black Enterprise, Upscale, Better Homes & Gardens, and Working Woman, to name a few.

With a
life that was seemingly chock full of momentous occasions, the truth
is, I can barely remember most of it. Sure, it’s true that pregnancy
and motherhood seem to destroy an inordinate amount of brain cells
related to memory. But it’s also an undisputed fact that motherhood
brings fresh experiences that are so much deeper and richer than
anything that came before, that they tend to cloud out a lot of the
other stuff.

My priorities have changed, my awareness and
sensitivities have changed, and my respect for the gift women have to
shepherd life into this world is at its zenith.

My name is KIMBERLY SEALS ALLERS and I am a mother.

  1. Hi Kimberly,
    I appreciated your interest (via twitter) in our documentary (The Maternal Grail), which highlights the universality of motherhood and the desire for motherhood across cultures, specifically in Africa. I’d love to connect with you on this. Is there a good way to arrange for a conversation (or coffee if you are ever in NYC)?

    Warmly,
    Peter Klatsky
