Headshot of Dr. Denaye Barahona

Join Monica Munaretto, Manager of Graduate Student Life, and Dr. Denaye Barahona, founder of Simple Families, to talk about parenting in grad school during our current circumstances. 

Denaye holds a PhD in Child Development and is a Clinical Social Worker with a specialty in Child and Family Practice.  She is the founder of, an online community and learning resource that encourages "living well by developing a healthy relationship with yourself, your family, and your home". Denaye was parenting a young family while writing her own dissertation and appreciates the challenges of grad life while holding the role of caregiver.  When her popular blog and podcast started to explore parenting in the pandemic, we reached out to see if she could spend some time with our community to answer your questions about parenting and grad school, especially during a pandemic.

Denaye Barahona's work has been featured by the Today Show, PopSugar, the Huffington Post, Motherly and Parenting Magazine. You can learn more about her at
