Our Team:

Katie Moosbrugger

Co-founder – Katie@triadmomsonmain.com

Katie moved to Winston-Salem nearly ten years ago (en route from Charlotte,en route from Ohio University, en route from a childhood in New Jersey),and she and her husband, Charlie, say every day how lucky they are to have landed in the Triad. Launching this web site was a natural next step for Katie after introducing and co-managing a popular mom/parenting blog in the Triad for two years. Prior to that, she worked for nearly four years as a freelance writer and project manager part-time while raising her daughter, Emily, and son, Henry. And before her life as a stay-at-home mom, she was busy building a career in the fast-paced world of both agency and corporate public relations. In her position as co-founder of Triad Moms On Main, you still find Katie blogging as well as managing the day-to-day operations of the site along with Rachel.

Rachel Hoeing

Co-founder – Rachel@triadmomsonmain.com

Rachel is an Appalachian State graduate who started her career as an elementary school teacher directly after graduation. Rachel taught in the Mecklenburg and Forsyth school systems for eight years, and then decided to change her career to a stay-at-home mom after she had her first child, Jake. Jake is now 15, he has a sister, Anna, who is 13, and Rachel does just about everything except “stay at home!” Rachel and her husband Kevin have lived in the Triad for 17 years. Rachel is an active volunteer in her church, her children’s schools, as well as the community. Rachel felt like TMoM was a perfect fit for her, as she was able to combine and use all of her talents in sales experience, love of children, managerial skills, social marketing, love of organization, and her knowledge of the Triad.
