Michael Shapiro, CEO and Publisher of TAPinto.net, said, "We are honored to have Tracy Beckerman join the TAPinto family. Since TAPinto.net is a network of online local newspaper franchises which are primarily owned and operated by women, many of whom are stay-at-home moms, Beckerman's writing about being a stay-at-home mom and reinventing oneself particularly resonates with us. Tracy has a genuine gift for writing and we are excited that she will now be sharing that gift with our 3.6 million readers."
