Are you moving to Plano? Looking to deepen your local roots? Our community includes moms who are planning a move, have moved recently to Plano or have lived here for a while. Relocation is a huge topic for many and most moms are desperately seeking new friends, contacts, and a listening ear when life might get on top of them, with a newborn baby or a hormonal teenager at home. Most moms are wanting to know – which schools are the best, which dentist/doctor should I go to? Who is the best allergist? Which store sells ballet shoes and is open late? You name it, they want to know about it. And they want other moms to tell them.

Maybe you are newly pregnant for the first time or your kids are getting older and your needs are changing? Plano Moms is there. Use our network of moms to provide trustworthy referrals, tips, and guidance in Plano and our surrounding cities. The more you take part, the more you get out of it – found a local bakery whose cakes you love? Share the love. Tell other moms all about it!

Meet the Mom Behind Plano Moms, Abbie Alter:

Abbie plano momsHi, 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 – 20,000 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 Shannon~ Blogger on Plano Moms

Shannon Gauger Plano Blogger

Hi, I’m Shannon! Mommy to 2 kids, Wife and Teacher. I was born and raised in Plano, a true “Planoite”!!  After graduating from Baylor University (Sic’em) I moved back to Plano and began teaching elementary school. I taught for 16 years and now teach pre-school and my church in Plano.  I love spending time with my family and doing fun things in and around Dallas. Plano was the best town to grow up in and there’s no other place I’d rather raise my family. I love all things black and white, HGTV, reality tv, and sweet tea!

Melissa Plano Mom

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!
