Welcome to all of the MOPS moms! My name is Megan Dickens and this is my third year being involved with this wonderful, supportive group of women. I am looking forward to this upcoming year! This will be my second year on the Steering Team as the Hospitality Chair.
I have been involved with several hospitality type roles in the past and look forward to bringing my experience and knowledge to Derwood MOPS again this year!
I am originally from Ohio and my husband is from Alabama. We met while we were in school at Western Kentucky University. We moved to the DMV shortly after college and shortly after we got married for my husbands job with the federal government. We just celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary this past July. We have lived in Rockville, Gaithersburg, and are now in Germantown. We have two very handsome little boys, Graham, age 2 1/2 and Lincoln, age 7 months. I am very fortunate to be a SAHM with a part-time job out of the home. If you haven't checked out Lillybee U you should! :) I have been working in the shoe industry for the past 6 years.
When we found out we were pregnant with our first I knew that I needed to quickly find a group of women that were just like me, A MOM! My older sister had talked to me about how much she loved her group in Colorado and so I set forth to find one in our area. It also just so happened that our neighbor was in Derwood MOPS and mentioned it to me as well. I quickly reached out while I was pregnant and joined shortly after. I can honestly say that I made the best decision to join Derwood MOPS. I have been able to forge friendships and further my relationship with God. My wish for all of you this year is that you find exactly what you are looking for in MOPS. Whether that be 2 hours of quiet time, a lasting friendship, a few play-dates, a mom's night out at the Melting Pot, or most importantly a space where you can grow, flourish, and nourish your relationship with God. Here's to an awesome year at Derwood MOPS!
