Who We Are: The Team
Danielle Krupa, Founder & Executive Director
Raised by a single mother that worked 3 jobs while simultaneously putting herself through school, Danielle Krupa experienced firsthand the hardship a mother can go through when she doesn’t have financial security. This served as her inspiration in starting Moms for Moms once she became a mother herself. And it continues to serve as her motivation in providing new and expecting mothers the critical items needed most after childbirth.
When Danielle isn’t working with Moms for Moms, she can be found in Back Bay, Boston (after 20 years in NYC) with her husband and 2 young daughters. She is a culinary professional specializing in health & wellness and 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.
Roberta Parrino-Clinton, Program Director
Roberta recently joined the Moms for Moms NYC team as Director of Programs. She is dedicated to helping and empowering women through her community activism and professional endeavors. She has spent over a decade of her professional life in Corporate America in marketing and strategy roles in the financial services and technology industries before transitioning to helping non-profits and women owned small businesses.
Roberta has her MBA from the D’Amore McKim School of Business at Northeastern University and a Bachelor of Science in Rehabilitation from the University of Connecticut.
In her spare time this native New Yorker enjoys learning about different cultures through food and travel with her husband and two sons, reading, baking specialty cakes, and working out.
Hanna Zrihen, Strategic Consultant
After a career in management consulting in London, Hanna worked for the International Rescue Committee, a non-profit organization that responds to the world's worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. For the last two years, she developed the startup “zoulat” to help online retailers make donations with each purchase.
As a new mom, Hanna can’t bear the idea of a mother going through giving birth without the security and support she needs. She knows small actions can make a big difference in people’s life, and that’s why she’s thrilled to be a part of Moms for Moms.
Board of Directors:
Lauren Costa, Ph.D., Founding Member, 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.
Maya Rom Korin, Ph.D., Founding Member
Maya Korin is a New York City native and mom of two 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.
Lindsey Page, Founding Member
Lover of good food and travel, Lindsey Page has called NYC her home for over 16 years. She is the mother of three boys with a penchant for volunteering and doing her part to better the world.
Katie Galvin, Founding Member
Hailing from Virginia, Katie is happy to have called NYC home for the past several years. Her experience as a Peace Corps volunteer informed her decision to become a middle school teacher. But her current job is the toughest and most rewarding one yet: being a mom to her three small kids.
