Jessica is a mom to 3 beautiful children. She is very involved in her community and always helping at her children’s schools. She is passionate about her kids, loves to read and watch movies, drink wine and surround herself with her Mom Squad. She calls herself a professional procrastinator, but functions better with multiple tasks at one given time. She loves food and trying new restaurants. She could eat dessert for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Couldn’t we all 🙂 Those who know her, know that she is very outgoing and always the life of the party. But surprisingly, she does not do well in crowds or public places.

So, why did she start Everyday Moms…

Jessica started Everyday Moms in March of 2016. She created this wonderful group as a platform for women(moms) to have a voice. She wanted a community where moms could get advice, referrals, support, and to see that they are not alone when they are going through a difficult time in motherhood. She wanted to meet new moms in her community and for others to do the same. After EM grew over night, it started to become more about giving back to the community by supporting local business (EM has a small business Saturday) and non profits in the area. Never did Jessica think that in just over a year EM would grow from over 3000 members to over 5000 in 2 short years. She is excited to see what the future holds for EM and our moms.
