About Metro Moms Network, LLC
The Metro Moms Expo (www.metromomexpo.com) is organized by Metro Moms Network, LLC, founder and CEO Kathy Zucker with assistance from staff members Jenifer Semenza, Mary Vidal, Matina Loffredo and PJ Kaiser.
Two years ago, marketing business owner and newspaper columnist Kathy Zucker started holding free catered monthly networking meetings in Hoboken to find business partners to handle rapidly increasing work demands. The response was phenomenal; parents started emailing her asking for advice on everything from child care, healthcare and preschool admissions to new business ideas. In 2011, Kathy formed Metro Moms Network, LLC, along with four other local moms, and launched the Metro Moms Consulting Network, Expo and Magazine (www.metromoms.net) to provide answers to all the questions that parents face in the Hoboken area. With kids ages 0-8, the Metro Moms have made a ton of great contacts along the way and want to share them with local parents.
The event is being sponsored by PromptMD Urgent Care (www.promptmd.com), Bin There Store That (www.bintherestorethat.com) and Andy Denny Home Repair. A full list of workshops being offered during the expo as well as participating exhibitors is available on the website at http://metromoms.net/schedule.
