My name is Chelsey and I became the Director of Mommy Connections Edmonton North in late 2013 when my first-born was just 10 months. When our fabulous St. Albert Director and great friend (whom I met in a Mommy Connections Mom & Baby Program) decided to shift her focus to her other business and family in late 2014, I have decided to take over Mommy Connections St. Albert and combine it with North Edmonton!
When my daughter was just six weeks old, 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 our daughter’s arrival in January of 2012, I worked as a full-time high school and junior high Spanish teacher. 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 daughter (6 years) and son (almost 3). We love the family connections we’ve made and all the local businesses we’ve collaborated with over the years. 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 North Edmonton and St. Albert have to offer while creating lifelong friendships!
