Meet Our Writer and Editor:



Maricris (pronounced Mary-cris) aka @MaricrisG is the founder and owner of Zensible Mama. Born and raised in Asia, poverty and strife is a part of her life growing up. A challenge that has molded her to be a strong person and gave her a unique ability to see the best in any unfavorable situation and find creative ways to get through them.

Her Story.
Survived a killer earthquake that killed thousands of people in her country and almost sunk her city, the 2nd war between Iraq and Kuwait in 2003, and most of all the peril of motherhood which almost cost her life. These tragic experiences taught her the value of life and to put her best in everything as much as she can.
 
A life lesson that propelled her to strive to become one of the most trusted Social Media Influencer in the industry today. A people person whose skills were honed working as the Senior Lead Officer of the Customer Service department of a top telecommunications company in the Philippines and disciplined in the ways of the corporate world. With a degree in Architecture, she is the ultimate strategist - lays out the groundwork before implementing them and always with a unique flair of creativity!

A working mom dedicated in maintaining continuous balance between life, career, family and motherhood, it is a tough, mostly rough, juggling act that is helping her balance her Social Media life as well.
"My life is an adventure. I hope that my personal stories, though sometimes, bittersweet and sad would serve as an inspiration and encouragement to my readers and to see that there's more to life than meets the eye" - Maricris
The accidental blogger. 
Maricris stumbled upon blogging through a friend who travels a lot with her family and used blogging as a platform to chronicle her journey and update friends and family across the world. She was intrigued at the concept and was soon convinced to start her own blog and the rest was history. Looking back when she first came to America, she could never imagine that one day, blogging would change the course of her history. Possibilities are endless. Opportunities abounds. And one she wants to share to her readers because she love them and without their continued patronage, this blog will not be here where it is right now!
