Hello. My name is Jen and I am the new Owner of Northwest Ohio Moms. Along with running NWO moms, I have been a Business owner in Sylvania since 2011. I was born and raised in the greater Toledo area and graduated from Start High School. My upbringing has led me to spend time living in North, West and East Toledo as well as Maumee and Perrysburg. Now residing in Sylvania for the past 12 years with my husband Chris and Co-Owner of their gym Renegade Fitness, I want to continue to use NWO moms as a way to highlight resources for Moms in all stages of motherhood. To offer a space to share stories, experiences, and work together to strengthen and give back to our local communities.

 NWO moms is a place where judgement is left at the door and a mom feels safe to share, ask for advice, encourage or lend support. Being a local business owner myself, I want to be able to support other businesses in getting themselves seen and heard in a way that benefits them while in turn benefiting our local mothers. 

Having lost my mother (and father) suddenly, and prior to my own motherhood journey, I have experienced firsthand how important it is to have an alternative support system and other women to connect with during these difficult but rewarding years. Professionally, I have been a fitness coach for 15 years and have certifications in Pre and Postnatal fitness as well as hold a Post-Partum Exercise Specialist Cert. I am a mother to 3 beautiful girls under the age of 6, love Disney (got married there) Fall weather, Football and of course a good margarita with girlfriends. 

My hopes is that NWO moms can be a positive place for women to connect both online and in person. As it has been for me the past couple years.
