Name: Kelly Skinner
Born In: Toronto
Children’s name and age: Elijah (11 months) and Payton (14 years, my stepdaughter)
Childhood Ambition: I wanted to work in the Criminal Justice Field. I originally wanted to be a lawyer but I’m so happy that I ended up in Law Enforcement.
Fondest Memory: The day Elijah was born. My husband Rick and my stepdaughter were with me in the delivery room for the whole thing! It was such a special day for all of us.
Wildest Dream: To win the lottery and take care of everyone I love…
Proudest Moment: Graduating from the University of Guelph Humber this year with my family beside me. It was a dream of mine to get my University Degree and I did it!
Biggest Challenge: Deciding to go back to school to get my Degree. It was challenging to manage my family and career and still find time for schoolwork and studying.
Perfect Day: Any day that my family gets to spend together without a million other things to do!
First Job: Cashier at Bi-Way! Remember that place? lol
Indulgence: Guilty pleasure TV! Shows that I don’t like to admit that I watch, like Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars. And chocolate of course. Who doesn’t like chocolate?
Last Big Purchase: My SUV. I had a great little car, but my stroller wouldn’t fit in the trunk. 🙁
Favorite Movie or Favourite Sport? My favourite movie is The Colour Purple with Whoopi Goldberg. My sister and I would watch it over and over when we were children.
How long have you been a member of momstown Milton? 2 months
Describe your experience as a momstown member? Why didn’t I know about momstown Milton when Elijah was born?! I found out about momstown Milton this summer and I am so happy I joined! I don’t really know anyone in the area and it was so nice to get together with other moms. Eli loves being around the other babies and the other moms have been such a help! I had a ton of questions and it was great to know that others were going through similar things and they had such great advice. My only regret is not joining sooner!
