My name is Sophia Dang. I was born in San Francisco, but grew up in Hillsboro, a smaller town in Oregon. I currently reside in Portland with my husband, Darick, our daughter, Malia, and dog, Dexter. I’m a registered nurse (RN) by profession and I love what I do. I enjoy motherhood, soy chai lattes, online shopping, and falling asleep to Poker After Dark. Thanks for dropping by.

I started Dang Mama as a means to document anything. Things I like, my thoughts, Malia’s milestones, etc. Mostly, I’ve come to realize that motherhood is incredibly tough. I wanted a platform to share the information that I’ve learned (and will continue to learn) from my own experience, research, and of course, from my amazing mama friends. And so, Dang Mama was born. Feel free to join me on this journey that is motherhood.
