Are you moving to Plano, Texas? Looking to settle?
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 nearly all moms who are 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 always trust the other local 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!
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 30,000 moms sharing ideas, tips, referrals and making connections with each other through Social Media, Planomoms.com, events & regular email newsletters!
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!
I write great blogs!
Call me BonBon, I am a Mom of 2 kids, a family travel blogger and a travel advisor.
Hi friends! I’m Melissa, a proud Canadian girl living in Plano since August of 2017!
We are a homeschooling family with a love of adventure – we’re always busy trying something new. We adore Plano, but when we first moved here, I felt so isolated.
Hi! I’m Michele and have lived in Plano since 2002.
I moved from the East Coast after college for a Job and never looked back. I met my husband, Jeff, here and we have two boys ages 8 and 6. As a “boymom” I spend many weekends at sport games for my boys.
As a family, we love to travel and love the beach! After I became a mom with a young child, Plano Mom’s became a “go to” site for events around town as well as advice from other mothers.
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.
