The community was formed in June 2011. As a new mom, who was new to Westchester County, Melissa had a difficult time finding local things to do, places to meet other new moms, and recommendations for the things she needed. There was no go-to place for this information. Why was this so hard?
She began discovering so many wonderful activities, businesses and places to go in Westchester and wanted to share them. Melissa created a Facebook group with her own circle of friends so that they could share experiences and recommendations in an open, interactive dialogue. She began receiving requests from other moms to join. Today there are over 12,000 moms in the group!
Thanks to the amazing team of group administrators, it is a very active and supportive community. Each day moms ask about anything and everything— information about local towns and schools, restaurants, classes, camps, parenting advice, medical recommendations and more.
Her passion to bring moms together and provide them with an effective resource was a perfect fit. In her pre-mom days, Melissa worked as an advertising executive in New York at top agencies including McCann Erickson and DDB.
