Meet The Director

Raelene Dersch- Owner/Director

My name is Raelene and I became the Director of Mommy Connections Grande Prairie in August 2017 when we relocated from Edmonton.

When my son was just 4 months, I attended an 8-week Mom & Baby program with Mommy Connections. Every day was a new experience that involved great discussion, fun activities, and interesting speakers. We loved exploring what our community had to offer us and signed up for several of those programs, including music, dance, and swimming. What I value most about Mommy Connections are the friendships I made with a group of inspiring women whom I consider my core support team. Being a mom is an incredibly humbling experience full of joy, laughter, and tears. I believe it is so important to have a group with whom to share the joys and challenges of motherhood.

Prior to my son’s arrival in May 2016,  I worked as a full-time at Alberta Blue Cross as a Clinical Drug Analyst. I am so delighted to have been given the incredible opportunity to connect, educate, and meet other moms and dads while staying at home with my son. We love the family connections we’ve made  and all the local businesses we’ve collaborated with. Thank you so much for your continued support – from attending programs and events to engaging with us online – you are why and how our programs have grown so much!

I am so excited to continue to meet all of you and your little ones and look forward to connecting you with the amazing experts, programs, and services Grande Prairie have to offer while creating lifelong friendships!

Sincerely, Raelene Dersch
