Describe your experience as a momstown Milton member :
momstown saved me in my early days as a new mom! I am a first time mom, and we didn’t really know anyone in Milton. I was very hesitant to attend my first event (Baby Basics) back in January, but I am so glad that I did. It was such a supportive and welcoming environment. It really brought me out of my shell and allowed me to connect with other moms, and the unconditional support I got from the events and the message board got me through those first tough months. I have made amazing connections and will carry those friendships for many years to come. I talk about momstown constantly and can’t stop recommending it to all of the new moms I meet in and around town.
Now I have the amazing opportunity of being the new Community Manager for momstown Milton and I am so excited! I have some great ideas for new programming, and I am looking forward to connecting with all members, old and new. One of the most rewarding things about my role is the ability to meet new members and help them experience everything momstown has to offer. I also can’t wait to work with all of our members to create programming and experiences that both moms and children can enjoy and learn from.
Please feel free to get in touch with me if you have any ideas/suggestions/comments on programming or content you would like to see added to our exciting calendar of events (or if you just want to chat about anything at all!).
Looking forward to seeing all of you in the days and weeks to come!
