rianon jaeger, Coordinator
This year, I am excited to step in as the coordinator for Mornings with Mommy and meet many wonderful families. I am a returning Fond du Lac native and have been a member of Faith for 4 years. I’ve been married to my amazing husband, Joel, for almost 12 years and we have 3 wonderful boys: Jonah (9), Elijah (7), and Isaac (4). I have been a stay-at-home for several years now and enjoy connecting with other moms in the community through volunteer opportunities and different groups. My education and background is in psychology, which I get to use everyday with the many hats I wear as a mom!
I enjoy cooking, exercising, hiking, coffee, and good conversation with good friends. I love to explore and learn new thing! I appreciate Mornings with Mommy because it's an opportunity to meet other parents in the community who are in the same stage of life, while providing a fun, educational experience for my children
Cara Desjarlais, teacher
Hi! I’m grateful and very excited to join the Mornings With Mommy leadership team as the Teacher. I am looking forward to sharing stories and songs with your little ones. I was born and raised in Fond du Lac and have recently moved back to be closer to family. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Eric, for 7 years and have two adorable little girls: Madyson (5) and Ava (2).
I have been blessed to be a stay at home mom for the last 5 years. I have a degree in Interior Design and would like to have my own furniture up-cycling business someday. I also enjoy being active, fishing, cooking, reading, and doing anything creative.
Keelyn Kelley, Arts & Crafts
Hello! I am beyond thankful for the incredible opportunity to serve on this year’s Mornings with Mommy leadership team as the Arts & Crafts Coordinator! We are going to have so much fun together! I was born and raised in Oshkosh, in a family of 7, and attended Grace Lutheran School, K through 8th grade. I have lived in Fond du Lac for the last 12 years. My amazing husband, Justin, and I have been married for 7 years and we have 2 wonderful daughters: Lyla (6) and Ruby (1). I am trained as a Registered Nurse; however, since my youngest child arrived in 2017, I have been blessed to be in my dream job as a stay-at-home mom. We have been members of Faith Lutheran for 2 years and are incredibly thankful to be a part of such an outstanding, God-centered church and school!
I have always had a passion for creating art, from drawing to sewing, and everything in between. I also find great joy in music (especially singing!), baking/cooking, hiking, biking and snowboarding (my most favorite activity ever!!!). But, above all, I enjoy being with my husband and our girls, no matter what we are doing.
Christy Beck, Publicity & Social Media
I am so excited to be a part of the Mornings with Mommy leadership team and to take on the role of Publicity & Social Media Manager. I was born and raised in Fond du Lac, and have been a member of Faith for 8 years. My husband Clint and I have been married for 9 years and we have two daughters, Eva (7) and Elayna (2). I love getting to know other moms with young children and feel it’s important to foster a supportive community for moms as we navigate the joyful (and sometimes challenging) road that is motherhood!
Aside from my leadership position with Mornings with Mommy, I am blessed to be able to stay at home with my youngest daughter while growing my photography business. I also enjoy exploring the outdoors with my family, road trips, horseback riding, and curling up with a good book or podcast.
Thanks for taking time to get to know us. We love that Mornings with Mommy offers a perfect opportunity to connect with other moms who are on the same journey of motherhood, and to gain new friendships, guidance, and the affirmation that, yes, you ARE doing a great job as a mom and, no, you are never alone! Let’s be honest, motherhood is not easy and it is such a blessing to be able to come together and build each other up in a fun, faith-filled atmosphere! Whether your desire is to create art with your little on, or maybe to have a quiet morale-boosting chat with another mom, MWM is your place. We want you to come just as you are... and we will have a warm cup of coffee waiting for you.
