About Lehigh Valley Moms
Lehigh Valley Moms was started in 2021 by a local mom who wanted to create a one-stop-shop to give moms (and dads) the gift of time. We do this by giving Lehigh Valley families a place to find all the info you’re looking for when it comes to caring for & entertaining your families in Lehigh Valley. Your editor, Nicole, is an expert in finding local resources and finding ways to give the gift of time. As a mother of two living in the Lehigh Valley, Nicole knew that parents were looking for a simple, dedicated, and reliable resource for all things family in the Lehigh Valley. From Kutztown, Allentown, Bethlehem, Nazareth, Hellertown, and everywhere in between, Lehigh Valley Moms is here to give you:
- resources available to you around the Lehigh Valley
- activities calendars updated regularly
- blog posts about community and parenting topics
- Meet a Mom column celebrating local moms
Teacher by day, local mom superhero by night. Tasked with finding everything and anything in the Lehigh Valley that would help other parents find the gift of time. Nicole is one half of the parenting duo to two amazing children. When she isn’t rocking the whole mom-thing, teaching fifth graders, or cleaning her house… because that is endless… Nicole is on a quest to make Lehigh Valley Moms the go-to resource for all parents in the Lehigh Valley.
Q&A with Nicole!
Are you originally from Lehigh Valley?
I was born in Reading and stayed in that area after college. My husband and I moved to the Lehigh Valley a few years ago. We absolutely loved the area and can’t imagine living anywhere else!
Favorite local thing to do?
We love anything outdoors. You will find us at concerts in the park, movies in the park, hiking at the Trexlertown Game Preserve, and at Coca-Cola Stadium watching the Iron Pigs! Our kids keep us busy with sports in the fall and spring.
Something surprising that most people don’t know?
I am scared to fly! I keep trying to talk myself into getting on a plane but haven’t taken the plunge yet. The big problem is as a history major in college (I dual majored in history and elementary education) I gave myself lofty dreams of visiting the places I studied and just can’t seem to make it there. I keep working on it though!
Are you involved in an community endeavors or other local businesses?
I am an elementary school teacher, instructional technology coach, and continuing education teacher for an Intermediate Unit. I am a huge advocate for education as well. In my spare time I am involved with anything my kids are involved in (school, sports, clubs… you name it I try to help)! I am joining the Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce with Lehigh Valley Moms this fall. I am pretty busy but love everything I do and wouldn’t have it any other way.

I love a good comedy and can quote Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore in every situation.
