Meet Our Team
Welcome! Finding this site should be like moving in next door to a neighbor whose children are the same age as yours and who knows the “inside scoop” on everything. The best part, we never come over uninvited! Enjoy and please contact us if you have any ideas or suggestions on how to make the site better, or if you have questions about all the ways your business can benefit from being involved with Rocket City Mom!

Lindsey Barron, Chief Operation Officer
I’m Lindsey Barron, foster and adoptive parent, and mom to the Barron Bunch, party of 7!
Growing up in the Madison County area, I have spent decades in the community serving others through multiple non-profit organizations. Rocket City Mom has given me the opportunity to serve the families of our community through providing valuable resources and connections. As a parent of many, I value a good deal, a chance to learn something new, and anything that allows my family to enjoy the moment.
Lauren Lee, Managing Editor
I’m Lauren Lee, longtime dog mom transitioning to life as a rookie human mom! I’m married to my college sweetheart, Josh, and we have one precious son together, Oliver.
With a joint media and marketing background, I love providing my community with the information they need to make informed choices in their lives. My love for writing and exploring the hidden gems in my community have come together perfectly at Rocket City Mom, and I love sharing my journey into motherhood with you.
I’m a Jacksonville State University alumni (Fear the Beak!) and was first published at the age of sixteen. In my free time I enjoy reading, writing, knitting and playing with my two dogs, Jax and Ari.
Rebecca Hitt, Website Coordinator
I’m Rebecca Hitt, mom of one and co-navigator of toddler life with my husband, David and our border collie, Joel.
As the Website Coordinator, I love finding affordable and fun activities for families in the Tennessee Valley. We live in such an amazing area, and I love helping families explore and enjoy all that it has to offer!
In addition to helping all the Rocket City Moms, I am deeply passionate about history and museums, space exploration and rockets, storytelling and books, art and crafting, traveling and exploring. If I am able to share those loves with other people, I consider that a pretty good day.
Shannan Moore Malone, Book Club Host & Coordinator/Contributor
I’m Shannan, and yes, it is spelled with two a’s. I came to Huntsville for my college education, graduating with a BA in English and Communicative Arts, and have called it home since 2002.
I LOVE all things books and have been a voracious reader for as long as I can remember. During the endless days and nights of early childcare, desperate for connection with other moms and needing a reason to read again, I prompted Rocket City Mom to start the easiest book club on earth. We have been going strong since 2016.
I’ve been doing life with my husband for almost 20 years, which includes movies/television shows, great food and running. I’m trying not to irreparably damage the Buddy Man. LOL He’s eight.
Ashley Smith, Event Coordinator
I’m Ashley Smith, Event Coordinator for Rocket City Mom, and mom of two children with a grand finale baby coming in August 2023! My husband, Kyle, and I have been married for going on 6 years in April and we’re basically surviving this crazy life together one day at a time! I also love reading, photography, massages, and traveling and making memories with my sweet family.
Originally born in Anniston, AL and raised outside the Arab/Guntersville area for most of my life, I’ve been a Huntsville resident since June 2015. I love the diversity and welcoming spirit of Huntsville and the surrounding areas. My love language is acts of service so it’s fitting that I fell in love with Rocket City Mom. I’ve been volunteering and serving on community outreach boards for quite some time now and look forward to all the new adventures our team has in store.
Victoria Hewlett, Contributor/Event Coordinator
I’m Victoria Hewlett, a mother to 3 wonderful children, a turtle and a cat. Born and raised in Pasadena, CA, I’ve called Alabama my home since 2009! As a child, my parents loved exploring and took me on road trips all over the country. My passion for travel continues on with my family, who love seeing new places whenever we can.
I’m a California State University, Los Angeles Alum and an auditor by trade. When I’m not at my desk, you can find me spending time with my family, researching deals and finding new places to explore.
I joined Rocket City Mom as a Contributor to give fresh exploration ideas and share some of my favorite experiences, and now have the pleasure of collaborating with these amazing women to provide families with creative and helpful ways to enjoy all that North Alabama and the Southeast has to offer.
Haley Loveday, Social Media Coordinator and Contributor
Hello! I’m Haley Loveday. I love apple juice in a wine glass and the smell of a freshly snuffed candle. I have a breathlessly wild daughter, Emmylou, who is just as much punk as she is princess, and a beautiful wife, Marge, that would move mountains to make me happy. I was born in Huntsville, raised in Jasper, then found my way back through Space Camp counseling in the summer of 2014. Rocket City has been my home ever since. My background in writing, theatre, and social media marketing helps satiate my creativity and I’m thrilled to curate content for our parents and friends in the gorgeous Tennessee Valley.
Jennifer Breuer, Founder
A newcomer to Huntsville, Jennifer started this site in late 2010. She and her husband didn’t know anyone in town and had an 18-month-old daughter who needed to be entertained. She found herself constantly looking for all kinds of information online. Where’s the best place to buy organic baby food? How do I find a pediatrician? How do I find a playgroup for my child (and me)?
After several months of not finding exactly what she was looking for she decided to create it herself. Her goal in building this site was to create a space that parents like herself would want to visit regularly and hopefully find useful. A place where parents could share useful ideas and knowledge about Huntsville and about parenting.
Stephenie Walker, Editor Emeritus
I’m Stephenie Walker, a Huntsville/Madison County native and mom to two rambunctious boys.
My addiction to community volunteering and my past as a youth services librarian has allowed me to meet and work with tons of great people and places that provide services to local families. Through Rocket City Mom I can do the things I loved most about being a librarian – connecting people with resources they need – with the things I love to do – write, read, research, and spend time with my family. (Throw in some gardening and cooking and I’m happy as a clam.)
Here at RCM we hope to make you laugh, make you think, and make it easy for you to enjoy living in our amazing community. There is always something going on, and we do all the work finding out about it so you don’t have to!
