Avon Lake Branch Manager Launches Networking Group For Working Moms.
When DeeDee Alvelo first moved to Avon with her husband and two kids, she found it challenging to find other working moms to network with. She searched Facebook for a like-minded group in the area, but found none. So she decided to start her own.
Alvelo created the Avon Working Mom's Networking Group and the Facebook page @avonwomensnetworking. Soon, she says, “a group of amazing moms stepped up and decided this was something they wanted to be a part of building.”
Today, the page has blossomed to include more than 300 followers from all walks of life.
“Working moms are special. Our goal is to provide work/life balance and ease the ‘mom guilt’ we pile on ourselves,” says Alvelo. Open to all working moms from Avon and beyond, the group meets the 3rd Thursday of each month at various locations.
