Meet the Dallas Moms Executive Team!
Andrea grew up a Florida girl, raised her babies in NC, then acquired roots in the Big D before making way back to the Carolinas. Andrea misses the food and trends in Dallas, but loves spending time in the mountains with her husband and 3 minis – William (2010), Rae (2012) and Lila (2014).Her Pinterest board is full of craft and DIY pins that she will never do, her real craft side is in the kitchen making some good southern homemade meals.Carly lives in North Dallas with her husband of eight years, Will, her son, Mason (4) and toddler girl, Olivia (2). When she isn’t busy getting her spirited kids a yogurt or juice, Carly enjoys spending time like a good ol’ Texas girl hunting or on a laidback patio having a nice glass of Malbec. She is still amazed each and every day how it can be possible to love her kids so much. Her claim to fame is her record book aoudad that she shot after a grueling stalk in the Panhandle. If she isn’t outside playing with her kids, you can spot her at Target stocking up on clothes, diapers, groceries and all the “necessities.” Carly currently runs her own consulting business and has launched her own website for all the huntin’ ladies and the wives of hunters, Miss Pursuit.Katherine and her husband, Christopher, grew up in Dallas and met at SMU (Go Ponies!). They have been married since 2005, and although they love The Great State, they lived in DC and Baltimore for seven years. They made their way back to Texas in 2010. Katherine is mama to two precious little men. She loves dining in Dallas’ local restaurants; chips and salsa are her weakness! Katherine completed her Master’s degree in Communication and Leadership at Gonzaga University. When she’s not taking care of her family of 4 or busy with church activities, you might find her working on a homemade craft or two. You can catch up with her on Instagram.Katie grew up in Dallas and then spent 10 post-college years in Austin, where she and her husband Mick welcomed Gemma in 2011 and Ryker in 2013. They've since moved to Fort Worth and find it to be quite fun and a great place for kids. Katie is horrible at social media but secretly likes Twitter best. Favorite uses for her phone: reading library books and listening to comedy podcasts. Least favorite uses: making and receiving calls. If you've seen Death Becomes Her or Big Business more than once, you'll be best friends.Kelly and her husband, Christopher, are a business-owning couple in the Frisco area. Kelly handles the digital marketing from home while parenting her spunky daughter Hallie (June 2014), baby girl Elise (February 2019), puppy dog Stella and running her own personal blog Happilyevermock.com. You can often find her baking cookies in the kitchen or working on crafts or DIY projects with a little help from Pinterest. Kelly is an avid reader. She enjoys perusing Target, lives on coffee and carbs, and in the rare incident she is alone, she is probably belting out Journey songs in her car! Follow along with Kelly on Instagram.Giveaway Coordinator & Senior ContributorFrom a fourth grade teaching career in Richardson to managing a letterpress studio in the Design District of Dallas, Krystal finally found her calling with the not-so-simple life of motherhood. But motherhood can be lonely! It was only through an open call for contributors that she stumbled upon Dallas Moms Blog in 2012 and found the sense of community she’d been looking for. Since then, her role has grown from volunteer contributor to Managing Editor and now, Owner. Krystal has a passion for Dallas; a city she’s lived in her whole life, and wants to continue the tradition that was started with Dallas Moms –building a community and uniting the moms who live here. She’s been married for her best friend and husband, Tim, for almost 14 years and enjoys spending time with her boys, Mark (2011), Zachary (2013), Nathan (2015), and Jacob (2018). Her passions are eating cheaply, traveling often, and photographing every minute of it!Neighborhood Group Coordinator
