Kristi Corley

Founder

Publisher, editor-in-chief, doula and mom of three, Kristi is one busy momma! After eight years of working as a doula with new and expectant mommas, Kristi launched The Moms Magazine for the moms in Central Florida. The addition of Orlando Moms Blog three years later was a no-brainer as there was a HUGE need for a local blog.

Thrilled with the decision to refresh our look, Orlando Moms Blog became Orlando Mom Collective in 2019. Kristi has had the privilege to mentor hundreds of bloggers, influencers, writers and graphic designers in this journey!

Kristi’s connection with the moms of Orlando goes deep. One chat with Kristi and you’ll think of her as your new best friend.

Chenoa

Chenoa

A Florida native, Chenoa is originally from Miami but has been living in Maitland for 22 years with a short 2-year break where she lived in (and fell in love with) Raleigh, NC. She’s part “adopted Southern charm” with a streak of feisty Miami girl! She’s Mom to two strong-willed, preemie babies, a 25 weeker and a 35 weeker, who now are thriving big kids (6yr old girl and 3yr old boy). They have led to a hot mess parenting style that’s fueled by coffee to get through the day and wine to try and soothe the nerves at night. She’s married to her college sweetheart who she met at the University of Central Florida (GO KNIGHTS) while studying English-Creative Writing and the fine art of Greek life. She’s a DIY junkie who loves Fixer Upper (of course), loves reading, cooking and writing. When out and about with her husband, sans kids, she loves eating at new local places around Winter Park, enjoying coffee from a favorite local coffee shop or enjoying a date night at Eden Bar in Maitland. Her adventures through motherhood have included recently transitioning from full-time working Mom to stay-at-home Mom, raising a sassy, hilarious little girl and helping her silly little guy navigate some developmental delays that have challenged her to slow down and let him guide her way. She hasn’t lost hope that she can control all the things that parenting brings and her kids haven’t given up trying to prove her wrong. Her husband is the Helicopter Parent to her Free Range which is the perfect topping to the chaos of everyday life! She frequents social media and uses her Instagram to document the fleeting moments of “put-togetherness” that occasionally happen by accident…sometimes.

Coppelia

Coppelia is a local Orlando radio personality, wife, mom and self-proclaimed “Boricua princess!” Boricua because she was born in Puerto Rico and princess because … Disney! Her love of all-things-Disney probably started when her grandma “Abuela Mamin” brought 5-year-old Coppelia to Disney World for the first time!

She’s married to her “Boricua prince charming,” Adam, who is also from Puerto Rico. Both of their kids, their son Chris {2006} and daughter Ally {2009} were born in California. So far, Coppelia’s family adventures have taken her from Puerto Rico to California, then Texas (where she loved being a part of our sister community, the Houston Moms Blog!) She moved to Orlando in 2019 for an awesome radio gig! You can hear her on Z88.3 in English and La Z 102.5 in Spanish!

When she’s not on the radio or getting her kids to basketball and gymnastics, Coppelia blogs about family, faith and fun at coppeliamarie.com. She’s also the author of a Bible devotional called “Whole: How One Book Can Transform Your Whole Life.” While her roles as wife & mom are priority, she loves opportunities to lead worship and sing in churches and speak at Christian women’s conferences.

Orlando life is still new to Coppelia, but she loves being a Disney Annual Passholder. She and her sister Emille hit the parks as often as possible! Special Disney memories include her Disney Honeymoon in 2004 and her first RunDisney half marathon at the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend in 2015! Can’t wait to make new memories & share them with YOU!

You can follow her on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @Coppeliamarie.
