Nicole, Communications Coordinator

Nicole | Rochester MN Moms Blog

Nicole jumps at the chance to travel the globe but finds comfort upon returning home to the comfort and familiarity of her native Rochester. After attending the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities for her undergraduate degree in architecture, she skipped her graduation ceremony to marry a guy she met at a waterski show when she was 19. Her baby girl is now 14 years old, with a 11 year old biological brother and 11 year old adopted brother recently home from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

In what is clearly a trend to fully integrate all aspects of life, she and her husband involve their kiddos in everything from politics to rehabbing old buildings. She feels strongly that work and travel and family and marriage are best enjoyed simultaneously, and that life is all the richer that way.

Nicole thrives on copious amounts of coffee, a love/hate relationship with running, and searching real estate listings daily. Check out Nicole on Instagram for shots of her bulldog Lucy or follow her design blog Old Spaces New Places.

Tricia, Project Coordinator

Tricia | Rochester MN Moms Blog

Tricia was born and raised in Stewartville. After spending her college years, and then some, in Wisconsin, she moved back to God’s country in 2011 to marry her hubby Tony and begin their family. She stays very busy with her two boys, Charlie (2013) and William (2015), and daughter, Lucy (2018). Tricia is a mom on the go. You can usually find her with a babe strapped to her back or a stroller in tow in search of the next adventure. This family of 5 enjoys exploring the amazing state parks Minnesota has to offer, especially along the Northshore. When Tricia is kid free, she enjoys crocheting, reading and perfecting her bread baking. After 5 wonderful years in the classroom, Tricia took her teaching hat off to stay at home with her kiddos and run an in-home daycare. Even though Tricia keeps her family hopping, she makes sure they take the time to thank God for their blessings every day.

Molly, Social Media Coordinator

Molly Grimm | Rochester MN Moms Blog

Molly has lived in Rochester for eight years. She resides blissfully with her husband Adam, Fritz (2018) and pup Henry. Molly works for a digital agency managing a large media partnership. At work, she is Type A, but when it comes to momming she lets the five-second rule go out the window. Though not a long-tenured mom, Fritz has shown Molly that she was always meant to be a mama. She has cultivated a passion for all things mom and baby and loves trying out new baby products and lines. She also loves connecting with other mom’s – especially those with little ones around Fritz’s age. When not working or folding tiny human clothes, Molly loves reading, shopping, Sauvignon Blanc and hanging with her gals.

Kim, Editorial Coordinator

Kim F | Rochester MN Moms Blog
Kim is a Rochester native and mom to three wild boys: Gavin (2011), Caleb (2014), and Levi (2017). She and her husband David can be found shuttling kids to hockey practice all winter and playing outside with them all summer.
When not working at Mayo Clinic or chasing her boys, you can find Kim in her gardens, out for a run, or creating in the kitchen. All of this is made possible, of course, by one too many cups of coffee.
