Welcome! Finding this site should be like moving in next door to a neighbor whose children are the same age as yours and who knows the “inside scoop” on everything. The best part, we never come over uninvited! Enjoy and please contact us if you have any ideas or suggestions on how to make the site better, or if you have questions about all the ways your business can benefit from being involved with River City Mom!
Below you can read more about the main team that works to make River City Mom helpful to area families in Morgan County. To learn about the wonderful moms and dads who are regular contributors to our site, click here.
Lindsey Barron, Chief Operating Officer
I’m Lindsey Barron, foster and adoptive parent, and mom to the Barron Bunch, party of 8!
Growing up in the Madison County area, I have spent decades in the community serving others through multiple non-profit organizations. Rocket City Mom has given me the opportunity to serve the families of our community through providing valuable resources and connections. As a parent of many, I value a good deal, a chance to learn something new, and anything that allows my family to enjoy the moment.
Rebecca Hitt, Website Coordinator
I’m Rebecca Hitt, mom of one and co-navigator of toddler life with my husband, David and our border collie, Joel.
As the Website Coordinator, I love finding affordable and fun activities for families in the Tennessee Valley. We live in such an amazing area, and I love helping families explore and enjoy all that it has to offer!
In addition to helping all the River City Moms, I am deeply passionate about history and museums, space exploration and rockets, storytelling and books, art and crafting, traveling and exploring. If I am able to share those loves with other people, I consider that a pretty good day.
Shannan Moore Malone, Book Club Host & Coordinator/Contributor
I’m Shannan, and yes, it is spelled with two a’s. I came to Huntsville for my college education, graduating with a BA in English and Communicative Arts, and have called it home since 2002.
I LOVE all things books and have been a voracious reader for as long as I can remember. During the endless days and nights of early childcare, desperate for connection with other moms and needing a reason to read again, I prompted Rocket City Mom to start the easiest book club on earth. We have been going strong since 2016.
I’ve been doing life with my husband for almost 20 years, which includes movies/television shows, great food and running. I’m trying not to irreparably damage the Buddy Man. LOL He’s eight.
Ashley Smith, Event Coordinator
I’m Ashley Smith, Event Coordinator for River City Mom, and mom of two children with a grand finale baby coming in August 2023! My husband, Kyle, and I have been married for going on 6 years in April and we’re basically surviving this crazy life together one day at a time! I also love reading, photography, massages, and traveling and making memories with my sweet family.
Originally born in Anniston, AL and raised outside the Arab/Guntersville area for most of my life, I’ve been a Huntsville resident since June 2015. I love the diversity and welcoming spirit of Huntsville and the surrounding areas. My love language is acts of service so it’s fitting that I fell in love with the Rocket City Mom brand. I’ve been volunteering and serving on community outreach boards for quite some time now and look forward to all the new adventures our team has in store.
Haley Loveday, Community Relations Manager
Hello! I’m Haley Loveday. I love apple juice in a wine glass and the smell of a freshly snuffed candle. I have a breathlessly wild daughter, Emmylou, who is just as much punk as she is princess, and a beautiful wife, Marge, that would move mountains to make me happy. I was born in Huntsville, raised in Jasper, then found my way back through Space Camp counseling in the summer of 2014. Rocket City has been my home ever since. My background in writing, theatre, and social media marketing helps satiate my creativity and I’m thrilled to curate content for our parents and friends in the gorgeous Tennessee Valley.
