Position: Discussion Group Leader
Kids/Family: My husband Joseph and I have been married for 9 years. We are blessed with our sweet and spicy daughter Hope (4) our wiggly worm son Tad (1), two kittens, and our two chickens, Flip and Flap.
Favorite MOPS memory: This is my first year being a part of Newberg MOPS, but at my last MOPS group we had a Mom's Day Out to the local Tea Shop which was tons of fun. I loved the low key environment and the ability to chat casually with everyone.
Why did you join steering: I am really excited to get more involved in the Newberg community since I have been away from it for so long. I also love helping people connect and supporting other moms, so I thought this would be a great way of jumping in before too many other commitments clutter up my life. I tend to be a bit commitment shy quite honestly, so I figured it was now or never.
What are you most looking forward to for this year of MOPS: I am looking forward to making new friends and connecting with old ones. It is so helpful to me to have an opportunity to share my story with others and hear their stories in return. MOPS reminds me I am not alone in this sometimes lonely walk as a mom, and that is invaluable. I also love the opportunity for my kids to experience time away from me in a safe environment.
