Holaaaa. We’re Cristy and Katherine amigas, moms, founders and publishers of Los Tweens & Teens.

Cristy Clavijo-Kish and Katherine Doble


I, Cristy, conceived the idea for Los Tweens and Teens in the midst of raising twin identical daughters, Sophia and Olivia.

I was struggling with keeping my Latina culture alive for them once my amazing Abuelitos passed away – they were the true gatekeepers.

My hubby and I realized we needed to teach them about culture during these critical tween years. As my madre says…”ahora es el momento – luego es muy tarde para empezar.”

I, Katherine, was having the same problem!  My abuelos – Yeyo y Yeya –  had passed away leaving a huge cultural void.

My three kids, Maddy, Jonathan and Carmen were missing out on a critical part of their identities.


We wanted a place where we could share all of our collective cultures while raising children in this great nation we share.  Los Tweens and Teens was born.

Between school, friends, activities, carefully watching how they’re developing and with who – our hands are full.  So as amigas helping each other we try to share those insights with you and hope you share yours with us.

My familia always is at the center of my life. My twin daughters are truly a gift from God as an adolescent Cancer survivor I had little hope to be a mother but here they are!

Cristy & Chris

I’m the daughter of amazing Cuban-immigrant parents who taught me that hard work is essential to achieving your dreams and goals. I’m a Girl Scout troop leader, an amiga, sister, social media marketing professional and all-around funny chica!

A little more about Katherine…

The best memories I have of my childhood are my summers with my grandparents soaking up as much culture, Spanish and Cuban food as possible.  Their work ethic, drive and enthusiasm to enjoy life have inspired me every step of the way as a wife and mom.

My husband and I met in high school and have been inseparable since then.  Together we raise three amazing children.

Sebastian and Katherine

Maddy, our tween, is full of spunk and energy and loves sports.  Jonathan, our Kindergartener, loves sharks, dinosaurs, Legos, anything with a screen and always has a witty comment.  Carmen, our baby, is still developing her personality but from what we can tell she is going to be quite a handful!
