We are THRILLED to announce Houston Family Magazine has partnered with The Mommie Series! Effective immediately, HFM and The Mommie Series will be working closely together to help bring our readers more information on this wonderful speaker series helmed by the unstoppable Misti Pace-Krahl! Each month, we will feature various speakers, mombassadors and industry experts on fashion, finance, health and education in our new Mom-me column.
For those of you who are not familiar with the series, we decided to sit down with the founder to get a little dirt on her and her ‘baby’.
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you born & raised? How long have you been in Houston, etc.?
I was born in Hobart, OK but raised in Edmond, OK and Dallas area. November 1st will be 10 years in Houston!
Tell us what ‘The Mommie Series” is.
The Mommie Series is an educational lecture series for woman based on FAMILY, HEALTH, FINANCE & FASHION. We like to call ourselves a full “edu-tainment” – like a TedEx & girls night out all in one.
How did you come up with the idea for launching ‘The Mommie Series’?
It started by conversing with other entrepreneurial woman. I recognized a need to meeting our local CEOs and C-Suite. To really dive in deep with our community.
What is your favorite part of your job? Seeing others connect!
Being a trusted resource for the community. It really makes my heart sing when you hear stories of companies connect, attendees finding a source that they need for their family or even a chance to meet a new friend.
Do you have any particular series or guests that stand out??
Oh gosh. So many! I carefully curate 16 speakers, 4 charities and 4 locations a year. Not to mention our Mini Series that we do four times a year that are in between our seasonal editions.
Why do you think Houston is the perfect market for this type of event?
Houston is my city! I LOVE our community. There is really something about the people. And, I would have to say it’s their heart.
Why did you decide to partner with Houston Family Magazine?
THE. PERFECT. FIT. We couldn’t be more excited! Plus, I’m a big fan of Kim’s.
What does the future hold for The Mommie Series?
Expansion. We would love to provide this platform in every major city. Organically, we have people reach out and ask us to come to their home town.
