New moms Sherri Brown Francois and Hanadi Zakour are the proud founders of WestchesterMommy.com. Both mommies who've made the transition from Manhattan to “the burbs”. Since we weren't from the area, and hadn’t lived in the suburbs in a while, we were a little uncertain about how to find all that the area has to offer to new moms and families. We scratched our heads trying to figure out what to do with our new little ones in Westchester, and more important, how to find out what was happening in various towns as well as how to meet other moms like us. After a lot of research, visits to local parks, classes and talking to a lot of moms, we decided that there was a need for a more centralized hub which would post all of the information we had collectively gathered. Hence, the idea for WestchesterMommy.com was born. We are excited to offer parents this online video resource with the latest information on favorite places to go and things to do with their kids from birth to teens. We wanted to offer ways to meet other moms who were experiencing the same things (some for the first time – together) and with similar needs. By putting a spotlight on the best places to take your kids, classes, events, organizations and more, parents can now get an up close look at what’s available to them in Westchester County. Trust us there is SO much that Westchester has to offer and now it is all listed at your fingertips! We hope that you enjoy searching through our website and that it becomes a helpful resource for you. We are of course open to feedback and comments, so please keep in touch!
Sherri Brown Francois
Sherri is the proud mommy of two sons. She and her family love living on the East Coast – specifically Westchester. Sherri moved to Westchester just before giving birth to her first child and found it frustrating when looking for a ‘go-to resource’ as a new mom. Soon after, the concept of WestchesterMommy.com was born! Sherri is currently also the executive producer of SRB Media, a television production company which produces television programming for major media outlets. Sherri’s experience is a quintessential part of what differentiates WestchesterMommy.com from other sites. She brings both practical and personal perspectives to the site.
Hanadi moved to Westchester just before she had children. New to both being a mother and living in Westchester, she searched for guidance on where to go and things to do. She found it frustrating and odd that such a family centric area was missing a resource which tapped into all that Westchester had to offer, especially to new moms and families. It wasn’t until after joining forces with Sherri, and after the two put their heads together, that they created a resource which made it easy to find out more about family focused activities and events in Westchester. Hanadi is a working mom who has spent the last 15 years in finance (hedge funds) and balances both a career, being a mother and a wife. She thinks Westchester is the BEST place to raise a family and enjoys researching and uncovering NEW GEMS in Westchester that are perfect families!
