Welcome Christina and Ann!
We are thrilled to introduce Christina Fairhurst to MumNet in the role of Office Manager and Ann Nethercot as the new Childcare Manager.
Christina was born and raised in Toronto. Most of her work-related experience is in the non-profit/charity sector. She has been home, raising her two beautiful daughters for close to 8 years, but is now excited to take on her new role as Office Manager for MumNet. She was previously a member of MumNet, from March 2010 to June 2011, as well as Fundraising Rep for the Fairlawn Friday admin team. Her interests include travel, music, photography, movies, and yoga.
Ann has two children, Sam, 8 and Ruby, 6, and her husband, Eric is careening toward 40. She lives for reading, fitness and chilling out with her family. She was a Humbercrest United MumNet and MumVet member from 2007-08 and again in 2009. “Being a member of MumNet was so important to me because I was new to Toronto and had no family around. MumNet offered a great community of cool women and a much needed break! I am looking forward to meeting and working with all of you this year.”
If you like to reach out and welcome them to their new positions here are their email addresses:
We are looking forward to an exciting new year with these two spunky and dynamic additions to our team!
Spring Babytime Show Child’s Life Jacket Winner!
Kim Broome, a lawyer with the Ontario government and her husband Danny Floh Back, who runs a home based DJ business were excited to find out they were the winners of this child’s life jacket from the MumNet draw at the Spring Babytime Show! They are now the proud new parents to baby Emmett born May 31st weighing in at 6lbs 10oz, arriving shortly after this picture was taken. MumNet would like to congratulate them on their new arrival and we are hoping to see Kim and Emmett at one of our East MumNet groups in the fall!
Our winter event was a wonderful night of friends, dancing, food and yummy cocktails. Thanks to all of you who came out to support our network. The monies raised during our Winter Gala subsidize members who may not be able to afford the fees, yet benefit by connecting with other mothers in their area.
