Andrea Cooley and Kara Knaack took over Des Moines Mom in October 2016 with a goal of continuing the mission of building authentic community and relationships both online and offline with moms in Des Moines.
It is fitting that Andrea and Kara met online, through their personal blogs. They soon discovered they share similar interests in books (any other Modern Mrs. Darcy fans out there?), have kids who are close in age, and try to cram as much productivity as possible while their kids are in school. They stay in touch via Marco Polo and love it when they have time for working lunch dates at their favorite spots around Des Moines.
