Ready to mash life up? Welcome to The Monkey Mashup.
I’m Cheryl Stash, the founder of The Monkey Mashup. I’ve been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for the last 10 years. Hearing my client’s life stories and helping them find resources they need means the world to me.
When I started my own family, I struggled a lot. It seemed like everything that could go wrong, did go wrong! Both of my children cried (a lot!), breastfeeding didn’t go very smoothly (at all!!) and I struggled a lot adjusting to my new role. Even though I was a social worker and used to finding all kinds of help for all kinds of problems, I realized I didn’t really know where to turn for help as a new parent. I would spend hours looking at websites that were JUST for breastfeeding or JUST for childcare or JUST for licensed therapists. I knew there should be a place- one main website- where parents could find all the help they needed. In one spot. Profiles for licensed therapists, coaches, doulas, lactation consultants…all ready to help. Virtual or local events like baby sleep seminars, breastfeeding help, meet-ups, support groups. Self-help articles, advice, inspirational stories.
Over the last two years, I have been pouring my heart and soul into making The Monkey Mashup. A space for parents to get the family support they need. I’ve worked on it every spare minute I have.
Now I am asking you to join me in making this space a reality. Our space is ready to start accepting Helper listings. I want you to help me fill The Monkey Mashup website with so much help for parents that they will feel a sense of relief just finding the site and realizing help is just a few clicks away.
I know you offer an amazing service to clients. I know you want to help people or you wouldn’t be doing this. Let me help you find people who need you. Let me help new moms (like I was!) who don’t really know where to turn. The mood in the world is down. The time has never been more right. You have never been more needed. It has never been more easier to connect with clients virtually. New moms who may be too tired or overwhelmed to get out of the house to a weekly appointment- you’re all set to connect with them now.
Join The Monkey Mashup and I promise you I will continue to spend every spare moment of my days making sure this site flourishes and I fulfill my promise to you and to my readers. To connect you. To help you. To make life better one connection at a time.
