Meet the MKE Moms Blog Executive Team
MKE Moms Blog is made up of moms from around the area, including a team of contributing writers, an Events Team and a LoveMKE Team, but our Executive Team is the driving force behind events, resources, Neighborhood Groups, amazing content, and all things that make MKE Moms Blog the resource that it is!

Lauren, Marketing Manager
Lauren is a new mama of two and even newer Milwaukee resident. Having lived in Chicago and Minneapolis before Milwaukee, Lauren considers herself a “Midwest Urbanite.” She always dreamed of raising her kids in the concrete jungle and believes in loving thy neighbor and thy neighborhood as thyself. She loves all things local and discovering a city on foot. Lauren’s specialty is forging relationships with businesses and brands all over the city as well as planning the events for MKE Moms Blog that don’t involve the kiddos.
Marnia, Family Events Coordinator
Marnia is a born and raised Minnesota girl who came to the Milwaukee area for college and never looked back. She lives in Waukesha with her husband and 4 kids. Marnia has a passion for connecting families together, a creative imagination, a heart for reaching out to others, and a contagious enthusiasm, which is why event planning is something she adores. She loves anything outdoors, adventurous and dangerous or competitive. You will often find her rock climbing, biking, hiking with a child in each hand and often one on her back! Marnia takes the lead on the large family events for MKE Moms Blog.
Melania, Community Engagement Coordinator
Melania was born and raised in Waukesha. Her senior year of high school, she found out she was pregnant and spent the year balancing school and baby prep. A month after graduating, Yara was born and filled Melania’s heart to the fullest. Being a post-teen mommy, Melania saw the need for mommies helping mommies in the Milwaukee area and began working toward meeting that need through community.
Heather, LoveMKE Coordinator
Heather has always considered Milwaukee home despite moving 13 times in the last 7 years. With four kids under the age of 4, they decided it was time to plant roots. Coming back to Milwaukee and purchasing their first home has been the adventure of a lifetime, and they are thrilled to be home. Heather leads up our LoveMKE team, a group of area moms looking for ways to empower other mothers to serve and love on our communities.
Melissa, Project Manager
Melissa is a Waukesha native and is raising her boys in the same neighborhood she grew up in. Five years ago you could have described her as a happily married mom to four boys (including triplets!). Today, she’s a single, full-time working mama to three boys (9 and 5) and an angel. Mel lives on coffee and Diet Dew. Melissa coordinates many of the incredible resources here at MKE Moms Blog, from Birthday Parties to Preschools and everything in between!
