Michelle Sander
Director of Membership
In my mom life, I'm in charge of two tiny humans. In my grown up life, I am a copy editor. And in Napa Moms life, I'm in charge of getting local moms connected with this amazing network of women. I could NOT have been as successful in this mom business as I have been without surrounding myself by the intelligent, thoughtful, kind people that you find in this group.
