The Lakeway Moms Network territory representative is back! Get to know Kylie Felder as we dig deeper into the goals and expansion for Lakeway Moms going forward.
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am married to my college sweetheart (Go UTSA Runners!) and we have four kids together, ranging from one and a half to eight years old. Our only girl definitely runs things and our boys keep us on our toes! We are a homebirthing, homeschooling family and we try our best to use low-toxin products, but we still love us some Whataburger or Chick Fit A. I work at Hill Country Indoor as a basketball coach and coordinator part-time and in any free time I have remaining, I love to attend concerts! I am a big rock/pop punk/metalhead.
When did you start the Lakeway branch of the Local Moms Network?
I actually began the San Antonio branch while we were still living in the area before COVID hit. It wasn’t until a year or so later that I originally started the Lakeway Moms Network! We moved back to San Antonio for a short time, hence the two-year hiatus, but we are back and more excited than ever!
How long have you lived in the area?
I was born and raised here in the Texas Hill Country, and my husband was born and raised in Austin as well, so we moved to Lakeway together to be closer to his family.
What are your goals for the moms network going forward?
When I originally started the Lakeway Moms Network, my goal was to support local businesses out here in our little community in west Austin. The city of Austin is large, but the Lakeway and Bee Cave areas have such a close-knit community feel. My goal is to help bring these businesses together to support one another rather than competing against each other. We all want success, kindness, and community so that is my goal!
Do you see any big events coming up?
Yes! I plan to set up quarterly events, and possibly a monthly moms brunch at a local restaurant. The quarterly events will be a bit larger than the monthly events, think farmer’s market style, where local businesses can set up booths and share about what they do. Hopefully we can get some live performances from local artists as well!
Anything else you want to share with parents who are reading this?
You’re doing a great job. Parenthood is hard. Really hard. Even when we feel like we aren’t doing our best, our kids love us so much and think we’re the best mommies and daddies around. Let’s build a community together so we can continue supporting each other through our journeys.
