About The Publisher: Amy Johnson

Hi, I'm Amy Johnson, your Editor & Publisher for Macaroni KID Williamsburg, Newport News & Hampton, Macaroni KID Virginia Beach, and Macaroni KID Norfolk, Virginia

I recently married the most amazing man, father, stepfather, and now husband in the world! 

After earning an A.S. in IT Networking, I discovered building computers and managing network security just wasn't for me. I moved to Phoenix and graduated with a B.S. in Business Management and E-commerce. I cut teeth in the media world as a luxury resort marketing executive in Phoenix, Arizona. 

After returning home to Richmond in 2008, I started my own marketing consulting firm, and without enough to do raising a toddler, I joined forces with an amazing start-up company, and Macaroni KID Williamsburg was born. 

Two years later I added the Virginia Beach and Norfolk editions and have grown an amazing audience covering the entire Hampton Roads Area and surrounding communities!  I love sharing all the great things our cities have to offer and work hard to provide local content, curate intimate, resourceful events, and lots of fun giveaways for families in Williamsburg and Hampton Roads.

I have been a Macaroni Kid publisher for almost 13 years and love the learning, travel, creativity, and challenges of publishing 3 Macaroni KID editions, meeting local families, and working with our local small business owners.  

As the premier resource for family fun in Williamsburg, Virginia Beach and Norfolk, on our sites you'll find family-friendly events, articles and guides for kids and families all over Hampton Roads
