HI there! It's me, Elizabeth. I'm the Co-Owner/Founder of Lansing Mom and the Owner Founder of Detroit Mom. A little over 4 years ago my husband gave me the opportunity of a lifetime. He asked me if I wanted to go back to my life at the hospital or stay home with our kids and pursue my dream of running Detroit Mom full-time. After a lot of thought, I decided I wanted to live a life without regret so I put my notice in and became a full-time entrepreneur. Now, here we are four years later launching Lansing Mom. After hearing from several women in the area we knew so many were seeking community.
I currently live in Farmington Hills with my husband Joel, and four of my favorite little people, Lauren (19), Harper (7), Nolan (4) and Maryn (1). Our life is chaotic AND I would change a thing.
I'm a lover of people, podcasts, margaritas, underbaked chocolate chip cookies and traveling. Oh, and taking an insane amount of photos that I'm certain I will never print off.
I live for supporting local small businesses, especially ones owned by women, a good restaurant and a place to gather with friends.
I have dreamt of a job that would allow me to motivate and empower women to create connections. Community is of the utmost importance to me because I don't feel anyone should ever have to do motherhood alone. I cannot wait to share the many benefits of being a part of the Lansing Mom community. We are here to support and uplift you along the way. So, lets be mom friends!
Welcome! I’m Katie Co-Owner/Founder of Lansing Mom. Three years ago I left the teaching world in order to work on something I was passionate about, something that truly brought me joy, and it has helped me to find my way here, all the way to you. When I left my teaching position I started a new job as the Marketing Coordinator for Detroit Mom. Being a part of that community showed me how important it is to build connections within motherhood. Becoming a part of Detroit Mom has now led me to a new adventure with Lansing Mom and I am so excited to be on this journey with you.
I currently live in Royal Oak with my husband Ben, and two high energy boys, Walter (3) and Arlo (2). Our boys are so close in age that I fully understand what a whirlwind motherhood can be!
My passions are reading, hiking, traveling, and trying new foods. My dream would be to take a few good books and travel around the world experiencing as much as I can!
While I love to travel, I also love Michigan and everything it offers. Experiencing the community and being a part of it is so important to me. I love trying new local restaurants, grabbing a coffee at a local spot, and most of all, I LOVE supporting local shops.
Making connections with other moms has become a part of who I am as a mother, and a business owner. It’s important to me that mothers don’t feel alone as they walk through motherhood. It is why I am so excited to be here on this adventure with Lansing Mom. We all have something to share, a connection to make, and hopefully a friend to be found. I can’t wait to connect with you!
