Who We Are: The Team
Danielle Krupa, Founder & Executive Director
Raised by a single mother, Danielle Krupa experienced firsthand the hardship a mother can go through when she doesn’t have financial or emotional security. This served as her inspiration for starting Moms for Moms and her continued motivation to provide single mothers the basic necessities motherhood brings.
When Danielle isn’t working with Moms for Moms, she can be found in downtown NYC with her husband and 2 young daughters. She is a health-supportive chef specializing in wholesome kids’ food and the author of the Red Kitchenette blog. She holds a B.S. in Human Development and Family Relations from the University of Connecticut and an M.A. in Psychology from The City University of New York.
Board of Directors:
Maya Rom Korin, Ph.D., Research Director
Maya Korin is a New York City native and a mom of two rambunctious toddler boys. She is a public health educator and researcher focusing on health literacy and social determinants of health. Outside of the classroom and the playground, you can find her at a barre or yoga class, trying to find some calm in her crazy wonderful city.
Lauren Costa, Ph.D., Secretary
Lauren Costa is the mother of three young boys. She has a PhD in Evolutionary Biology specializing in animal behavior and sleep, yet can't seem to get her children to stay in bed past 5am. A native of Boston, she has lived in New York City for almost 20 years, and enjoys escaping to nature whenever she can.
Lover of good food and travel, Lindsey Page has called NYC her home for over 16 years. She is the mother of two silly toddlers with a penchant for volunteering and doing her part to better the world.
