Anitta Williams is an ocean and several time zones away from her hometown in Finland. After moving to the US, she searched for moms groups online for months. She had enjoyed the support of a Finnish new parent's group and found it very important to her as a mom.
Finding BuxmontMommies.com in 2010, she immediately knew it was what she was looking for. Anitta shared, "Moving to a new area, new country can be a bit overwhelming but with the support of BMM I've found many things to do with my kids. I've gotten to know some amazing moms and even found a great pediatrician and our rental apartment with the help of fellow mommies."
Not content to just participate as a member, Anitta moved from moderator to manager and finally to assistant chapter manager. She explains, "I was very interested in volunteering from the beginning, and when the opportunity to moderate came up, I jumped for it. When I was offered the manager job, I was already hooked so there was no turning back. I love volunteering for our site. Our leadership team is awesome - we have many talented, hard working volunteers on board."
