Hi! My name is Ivy Gutierrez. Welcome to my website.
I work as Communications Specialist for SwipeTrack, a small IT company in San Antonio, TX. I hold two Master’s Degrees, one in Journalism and the other in Communication Sciences / Public Relations. I graduated Summa Cum Laude both at my MA program and my Bachelor’s degree in Journalism. I speak Croatian (native), English (C2), Italian (B2) and Spanish (B1).
Current blogging interest
In summer 2015, I started blogging about babywearing in Croatian. I have been volunteering for Babywearing International of San Antonio since January 2015 and since then I have completed Die Trageschule course for a babywearing educator and my skills assesement for a Volunteer Babywearing Educator at BWI. I noticed Croatian caregivers lacked the resources I had readily available and decided to share what I have learned and experienced in Croatian in an attempt to help other and spread the babywearing love.
With that motive in mind, started the first personal babywearing blog in Croatian and later founded Bebologija to move my babywearing articles to a more dedicated space. My Croatian babywearing group Nošenje djece (Babywearing) grew to a wonderful community of over 19000 parents and sprouted several more bloggers and babywearing educators that do a great job by sharing their experience in our local language. It is becoming easier and easier for caregivers to have access to this knowledge and I take great pride in being a part of that change.
