BlueWaterParent.com is published by Blue Water Parent Media, LLC, independently owned and operated by Jennie Graves McClelland.

While raising her children, Jennie has worked as a freelance communications consultant in the education industry and in local news media, and as a volunteer for various organizations. She started BlueWaterParent.com in 2014 and took a break from the active publication of the online resource from late 2019 to mid-2022 to pursue other projects. Jennie decided to update and restart BlueWaterParent.com for a new generation of families in late summer of 2022.

Jennie and her husband, Gerry, have been blessed with six children currently ranging from school-age to teenagers to young adults. They have found the Blue Water Area of Michigan to be a great place to raise children.
