Meet the Team

Meet Our West Toronto Director: Karen Davey

Becoming a mom is an amazing feeling. But it can also be hard. And sometimes lonely. What I discovered quickly when my son was born, is that having a village makes all the difference.

I’m Karen Davey, President of Mommy Connections and the long-time Director of the West Toronto chapter. When I was home with my newborn (more than 10 years ago now!), I met and became close with a group of other new moms. With them, parenting was more fun, less overwhelming, and the opposite of lonely. We still get together all these years later, and many have become lifelong friends. In other words, meeting those women at that time in my life was a game-changer. 

So much so that I decided to leave the corporate world behind and start Mommy Connections West Toronto. It was the first chapter outside of Alberta and, over the years, I grew it into one of the biggest and most engaged groups in Canada.

Along with the chapter, my love and passion for this organization and its mission grew, too. So, when the opportunity to take over the whole organization presented itself in 2018, I jumped at it.

Even though I’m now responsible for all 30 of the organization’s chapters, West Toronto is the only one I manage myself – and I’m as dedicated and passionate about it as ever. 

We run classes for moms and their little ones at various stages: mom and baby (for newborns to one year old), mom and tot (for 1.5 to four-year-olds), and mom-to-be classes for those who want to be prepared and make the very most of their upcoming mat leave.

Even though I no longer have a baby on my hip, I absolutely remember the challenges of breastfeeding, teething, and sleepless nights. My commitment to each and every member of Mommy Connections is to always be supportive of your parenting choices, and to provide comfort and a strong support network to help you navigate those challenging first years.

My mission is to facilitate connection and support, and ultimately make your parenting journey a little easier (and a little more fun!) for all of you.
