President

My family moved to Sewickley in 2020 from New Jersey and we are so grateful to have landed in this special community. As an out-of-towner who didn’t know anyone or know the area, the Moms Club was a lifesaver for me. I joined the club when it was virtual and found the newsletters and Facebook group to be super helpful resources. Now that the club is back in full swing, it has been invaluable connecting with other moms and attending fantastic SAMC events. I’m excited to jump in and help keep this unique club going and growing!

Social Chair

I joined the Sewickley Area Mother’s Club in Nov. 2019 when my oldest boy was 13 months old. We were able to attend a few events before the world shut down. Being able to still connect with these wonderful ladies and obtain great resources and support through the Facebook group really helped get us through that time period. Though I live in Moon, Sewickley quickly became my favorite place to be since moving to the area in June 2016 from Toronto, Canada. I’m on this side of the bridge more than I am in Moon, so I can definitely say I am a honorary Sewickley resident! I’m excited to be apart of the social chair committee this year and look forward in helping plan the great events SAMC has been known for.

I joined Sewickley Area Mom’s Club 7 years ago when my daughter Charlotte was born. It was a wonderful way to meet other women and families with children the same age. Mom’s club has been so fun with organized events and play dates throughout the year. My husband Brad and I have 4 children, Charlotte (7), Fritz (6), Conrad (4), Isabelle (8 months). Looking forward to meeting everyone.

My family moved to Sewickley from Chicago three years ago and we have three daughters. We have loved the community and meeting other mom's in person through the Sewickley Area Mom's Club! Hope to see everyone at the Mom’s Night Out events this year!

Communications Coordinator

My family is thrilled to be a part of the Sewickley community, and joining the Mother's Group really helped us make friends and get connected when we first moved here. My favorite activities are the Mom's Night Outs, but I also use the Facebook group all the time to ask questions and get information about kid-friendly/focused events in our area.

My husband and I moved to Sewickley in Nov 2019. Since then we've had two boys and the SAMC has been a shining light for me this past year. The babies group playdates introduced me to other moms in the same season as myself and the friendships I've made through those, the social events, and moms nights out have been so uplifting. This organization really helped me feel like a part of the community and so I wanted to be more involved to help other new moms feel included and cared for as well. I'm excited for this 2022-23 season and all the fun we have planned!

Social Chair

I grew up in Wexford but lived away from Pittsburgh for 20 years. When we moved to Sewickley from London in summer 2021 with our two daughters, I joined SAMC as a great way to meet other local women. With a busy work travel schedule and another baby on the way, SAMC has been an amazing resource to get to know the community and the many wonderful families who live here

I grew up in Sewickley but later moved to New York City where I met my husband. We made the decision to move back here a few years ago to raise our family and joined SAMC shortly after. My kids and I have loved meeting new people and attending playdates and other great events!

We moved to Sewickley in 2019 and we LOVE living in the village, walking everywhere and meeting new friends! My husband (Andy) and I are Pittsburgh natives (South Hills), but spent several years living in Southern California where our oldest two children were born. I have four children: Delaney (9), Colman (7), Maeve (3) and Gavin (1). I look forward to planning all the three and under play dates with my youngest two kiddos!

My husband and I moved to Sewickley from DC 6 years ago. I joined SAMC shortly after my son TJ was born about 5 years ago. We now have another son Finn (3) and a daughter Mattie (1). SAMC has been a wonderful place to help support me and make new friendships. I look forward to planning MNO this year!

Darla Shay

Treasurer

I joined the Sewickley Area Mother’s Club when my twins were born in 2017. This organization has introduced me to so many great women and families, as a relative newcomer to Sewickley. I’m from Pittsburgh originally, but was new to this area. All of the members are so inviting and welcoming. It has been great to have a community to go to for recommendations, questions, child events, and (equally as important) child-free events.

Social Chair

I moved to Sewickley (and the USA) from the UK 2 years ago with my husband, dog and in my 2 nd
trimester with my daughter Sienna who is now 18 months old. We loved Sewickley straight away for
its friendly community, walkability and great shops & restaurants, the dog bakery has won over our
Labrador Ginny too! I work in the import/export industry and went back to work this February after
maternity leave, last year the mom’s club was a life saver to meet people and make new friends
after moving here during Covid. The family events, baby group and especially moms’ nights out were
great and made me want to get more involved with the club this year. I am really looking forward to
helping to plan events throughout the next year and meeting more moms in the area.

My husband and I are from Sewickley and have 3 children; a 6 year old, 3 year old, and almost 1 year old. I joined Mom's Club in 2016 when I was pregnant with my oldest. I've made so many great and lasting friendships through this club and having other moms to relate to has been invaluable! I look forward to another great year!

4 & Over Coordinator

We moved from Pittsburgh to Sewickley in the fall of 2020. After living in the city for eight years we chose Sewickley due to the walkability of the village and great amenities for children. I learned about SAMC last year when my oldest daughter started preschool and we loved attending the wonderful events throughout the year with both of our girls. I look forward to planning fun activities for the 4 & over group as well as meeting more moms in the community!

I am from Hungary and we moved to the US 9 years ago. Ever since we visited Sewickley, we were sure once we want to live here. After a couple years of West Coast life we finally moved back and our dream came true. I'm really grateful for this community, being a first time mom has been challenging and I received so much help, met so many great people and participated in so many fun activities with my little girl!
