Jam Kotenko

Jam Kotenko is a freelance contributor for Romper who occasionally writes personal essays about her experiences relating to marriage, motherhood, and everything in between. Before becoming a full-time stay-at-home mom, she used to write about cool tech and social media, often tapped to test and review new mobile apps. She's also been interviewed and asked multiple times to write about her OKCupid success story and is considered an online dating guru by people in her circles. Her bylines have appeared in Digital Trends, The Daily Dot, and GottaBeMobile. She is a mom to a 4 year old named Jasper, a 1 year old named Jones, and 4 year old Chance, a rambunctious Jack Russell Terrier-Chihuahua mix. When she's not keeping her babies entertained, she can be found binge-watching TV shows on Netflix or Hulu, listening to The Bachelor or Drag Race-related podcasts, raiding the kitchen for snacks, or trying her damnedest to nap. She hasn't had a decent nap since getting pregnant in 2015.
