Meet the Mom behind Plano Moms: Abbie

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 - 25,000 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)

Meet Mel: Email Extraordinaire and Outreach

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!
