Meet the Team

Meet Our Oakville Director: Jennifer Ellis

Hello, Oakville Moms! I’m Jen Ellis, the Director of Mommy Connections Oakville.

My journey as a mom began three years ago when my first daughter was born. It was early January—cold, dark and so snowy. Like many moms I wasn’t sleeping, and breastfeeding around the clock. While I was fortunate that my friends also had kids around the same time, I felt trapped by the winter and longed to make connections with local moms.

At the time I was living in the High Park neighbourhood and joined Mommy Connections West Toronto. It was a consistent highlight of my week! I got out and met other moms in a supportive environment, and I felt less alone. I learned so much about my baby as well as my recovering body, and I had fun! After each session I felt energized and motivated. An unexpected benefit: I made a friend, who also has a daughter just a week older than my own.

My family moved to Mississauga in summer 2018. I love it in the west end—it’s such an amazing place to raise a family, and I’m proud to call it home.

In October 2018 I joined the Mommy Connections team, facilitating for our Oakville chapter. I then took over the Mississauga chapter in January 2019, and in 2020, Oakville and Burlington. In addition to my role with Mommy Connections I run a Public Relations consultancy, having worked in Communications for a decade, and also work as a professional contemporary/hip hop dancer and dance educator.

I am passionate about helping parents make meaningful connections. Through Mommy Connections, I hope that you can find your mom village like I found mine. I look forward to engaging with each of you, helping nurture this awesome community of Oakville moms, and bringing you the best baby- and child-focused resources that the city has to offer.

If you have any questions, I’d love to hear from you at jennifere@mommyconnections.ca.

We’re all in this wild and wonderful journey of parenthood together.

Jen
