Moms' Club Board Members

Kristin Powell


Kristin is mom to two sons, Parker and Paxton.  She is an Engineering Manager at a local manufacturing company as well as a part time travel agent.  Kristin grew up in Upper Merion and is happy to be raising her family in the same community that raised her.  In her very limited free time, she loves spending time with her family playing board games or going for walks, as well as traveling and enjoying new experiences.


Heather O'Connor


Heather is mom to daughter Zoe and son Ezra.  She's also a third-grade teacher in a local school district.  When she's not working either of those two jobs, she can be found chasing after her Corgi, Mabel, at the local parks; playing nerdy board and strategy games; and traveling, especially to destinations with "Disney" somewhere in the name. 


Janette Heil

Playgroup Coordinator

Janette is the mom of two daughters, Penelope (5) and Aurora (2). Although she enjoys spending her summers with Penny and Rory, during the school year you can find Mrs. Heil teaching special ed at Haverford High School. She serves as the High School Vice President of the Haverford Township Education Association and was recently named to the Upper Merion Library Board of Directors. In her “spare” time, Janette enjoys neighborhood walks with her family, cheering for the Eagles and Phillies, and reading.


Ann Swayngim

New Member Coordinator

Ann is the mother of twins Ben and Jake. She is currently a SAHM and was formerly a geriatric social worker. 

She currently enjoys picking between her golden girls and muppet masks before running through the grocery store. She previously enjoyed being closer than 6 feet from others including travel and sports.


Heather Stohler


Heather is an adoptive mom to Mason. She has worked in the nonprofit field for 10 years and is currently a philanthropic advisor to a private family. As a family, the Stohlers enjoy food truck festivals and walking/hiking.


Cristina Nassif Kotmair

Family Support Coordinator

Cristina is a mom to sons Sydney and Desmond and daughter Evangelina. When she isn’t performing as a classical singer — she and her husband met while singing in a production of the opera Carmen — she is busy trying to make life wonderful for her family. Some days this means really missing the stage; other days, it means fitting in a nap to make her more pleasant to be around; still others, it means wondering if she’s doing anything right. Cristina is passionate about connecting with others, be it through music, laughter, or tears and she is always up for heart to hearts with other moms on this journey of life — with or without kids!


Carolyn Paradis

Website & Database Coordinator

Carolyn is the mom of JD and Cooper. She and her husband are Upper Merion graduates who are happy to be raising their family in their hometown. She works as an ultrasound supervisor for Main Line Health. She also volunteers as the race director for the Crush Run hosted by Crush Childhood Cancer. Carolyn enjoys neighborhood walks, ordering take-out, and true crime podcasts.
