After witnessing the importance of community support for new moms, she was eager to become a new moms group instructor. As a mom to a wonderful 9 year old, one on the way, she has a natural compassion for postnatal support. She participated in A New Moms Group Facilitator Training, Certified Lactation Counselor, and also works at the Little Lovage Club. She has a BA & MS from Lasell College, years of childcare experience, and has worked in the prenatal and postnatal industry since 2012. Her teaching style is genuine, positive, and has an open understanding to all that comes along with Parenting. What Moms are Saying: Becoming a new mom was the most exhilarating, exhausting, and intense journey I'd ever experienced. What I found I needed most was a sense of community, which is what this group offers. Meeting up, learning from, and laughing with other new mothers helps turn an uncertain and potentially scary time into a shared adventure...

Belmont World Film 16th Annual Family Festival: Opening Night
Opening night at Belmont World Film's Family Festival is a feast for the eyes as well as the ears. Filmmaker George Méliès, famously depicted in Martin Scorcese’s Hugo, is considered the inventor of cinema by France’s Lumiere brothers, and the undisputed father of special effects. The members of Alcolea & Company will perform an original musical score to accompany a collage of his most famous silent films. Right in the Eye (“En Plein Dans L’Oeil” in French) is a reference to one of Méliès’s most famous images in which a spacecraft crashes into the eye of the moon.

Films are screened in English or their native language with subtitles, most of which will be read aloud via headphones for young readers, and many are being screened in the US for the first time.
