Lisa Quinones-Fontanez

I’m a secretary by day, blogger by night & mama 24/7. Thank goodness for coffee because sleep is overrated.


Lisa Quinones-Fontanez is a typical mom to an extraordinary kid. Her blog, Atypical Familia, focuses on autism parenting, family entertainment, working mom life & more. Her writing has been featured on Huffington Post, Parents.com, Yahoo & Latinamom.me. When Lisa’s not working, writing or parenting, her free time is spent on the sofa catching up with her DVR & Netflix.
