Founder and Chief Mom
Hi, I’m Abbie, super mom, and busy-bee who moved to Plano from London, England with my husband and 2 kids, Jesse and Lucy, in the Summer of 2013.
Plano Moms was my lifeline when I arrived as I didn’t know anyone or anything about my new city that I now called home. Where did I start to make friends and meet moms like me? How did I know who were the best hairstylists, or dentists or pre-school options for my kids? Which area should I look for to find the right home and school for my son?
All these questions were answered by Plano Moms, like me. I found a lifeline in it and chose to build it into the community it is today – over 50,000 moms sharing ideas, tips, referrals and making connections with each other through Social Media, Planomoms.com, events & regular email newsletters!
When I’m not being a Plano Mom or being a taxi service to my kids, I am coaching & consulting local businesses, working out, cooking, and reading (when I find the time)
Hi! I’m Mel. I moved to Dallas with my husband and 3 kids from Sydney, Australia at the end of 2013. When I’m not on the sidelines of the soccer field cheering on my oldest son, my family loves to get out and explore all that Texas and the USA have to offer.
We love road trips and camping and all things travel and get away as often as we can.
I keep busy with volunteering at my kids’ schools and in my community and love working with Plano Moms!
Hi Moms! My family and I are relatively new to Plano, but you won’t find bigger fans!
I’m originally from Seattle, and my husband is from New York, but we chose Plano as the place to raise our two young children. We are very active and enjoy exploring our wonderful city and all it has to offer young families like ours.
When I’m not sharing all the best family activities on our Instagram page, I’m busy helping small businesses and entrepreneurs achieve their goals.
I’m also a proud member of the school PTA and enjoy planning school events and bringing people together.
I hope to see y’all out and about! XO Kate
I’m Gwendolyn! I’m a born and raised New Yorker, married to my college sweetheart (who happens to be a proud Texan!). I have a background in advertising and love reading, pilates, traveling, lattes, and baking!
Our family has been living in the DFW area since 2009 and we have 3 awesome young kiddos: Arden, Turner, and Evelyn. I remember just how much I needed a network of friends when we first moved to Texas, and then again just how important a mom tribe was once we started having kids.
