About raelenedersch

I have recently moved to Grande Prairie in August. I became a first time mom in May 2016 to my little man Nixon. I am currently transitioning from a full time office position to my new role as Director/Owner of Grande Prairie for Mommy Connections. Very excited about this change. What else about me?? I have been described as bubbly with a little crazy and I absolutely LOVE HIPPOS!!! I look forward to connecting with other moms and programs within my new community.

Meet the Team- Mom and Baby Facilitator

Hey Everyone!!

My name is Keri Bruce, I am the new facilitator for the baby and mom group.
I am originally from Edmonton, and moved here about 10 years ago. I have a 4 month old son, a 6 year old daughter and two step sons 13 and 15, and I love being a mom!!
I have many passions! I love sports- hockey and curling are my 2 favourite. I love the Oilers (despite there horrible record of losing) I have been Curling since I was 5 years old, I curled competitively in Jrs, but since moving to GP have taken up coaching over actually curling. I run many Jr programs (Celtic Academy, Elks Jr program, Wednesday league, and I coach a boys team) I love to cook/bake, I love hiking, fishing and being outside.
I hate winter and cold lol!
On top of that I also manage a cleaning company- AAA Pro Clean, and have my own company Chalking Parties which is through Chalk Couture (google it if you’ve never heard about it! It’s awesome)
I am super excited to meet you all and spending Friday mornings getting to know you and your little ones.

New LooK

Check out our new look!

We’re thrilled to reveal the new look of Mommy Connections! Months of hard work went into creating this fresh new logo that reflects the business we’ve become and our unique place in the market. We hope that you love it as much as we do!

Posted by Mommy Connections on Thursday, June 13, 2019

We’re thrilled to reveal the new look of Mommy Connections! Months of hard work went into creating this fresh new logo that reflects the business we’ve become and our unique place in the market.

Here’s what the different elements mean:

-The open circle around the ‘M’ represents the support and community you’ll find within our programs (it also forms a subtle letter ‘C’ for ‘Connections’)

-The three dots to the right of the ‘M’ represent the main types of classes we offer (Mom-to-be, Mom & Baby, Mom & Tot)

-The combination of fonts speak to the yin and yang of motherhood – that things can be both perfect and a little messy all at the same time

Our new brand also includes these (super cute!) icons to represent the three main types of classes we offer:

Mom-To-Be is all about preparing for pregnancy, birth and early parenthood
Mom & Baby offers new moms an opportunity to learn, laugh and connect with babe in tow

Mom & Tot is a great way to try new things and have fun with your toddler

We hope you love the new look as much as we do!
