About The Author

Cathy Pedrayes is a lifestyle expert, media consultant, and former scientist, and is best known as TikTok’s Mom Friend. She developed the reputation after sharing a video about the random items she keeps in her first aid kit, which prepares her for everything from eye punctures to diabetic emergencies. With her signature blue dress and pearls, Cathy’s content includes safety life hacks, such as how sleeping with a door closed can save a life and go-to lies for awkward situations. Her posts are inspired by city living, traveling, her Latin American roots, and her eight years of martial arts training. Originally from Miami, she currently lives with her husband in New Jersey.
