OUR ADMINISTRATIVE TEAM
President & Founder
I am Amy Pidgeon. Developing Nazzy Moms Unite has become my mission. I am a mother of 2 boys, Brady a sophomore, and Jaxon a freshman at NAHs. My husband is Tony. We reside in Bushkill. We moved into the district the year before Brady entered kindergarten because we felt that the Nazareth area school district best met our needs for their reputation for education and because of the strong community.
The most important thing to me is my family! Then coming in a close second is my purpose in this world. Since 1995 I have worked in education as a school OT (Occupational Therapy) through the IU20 and now IU 21. In addition, I also do outpatient OT at a local hospital. Helping is my passion! We live a very active life with our boys, they keep us busy! They are involved in many sports and school activities. We help as needed through coaching, PTA involvement, etc. We love to travel, are always engaged in the current sport season. When time allows my hobbies include cooking, photography, and giving back to our local communities through various non-profits.
Most recently in 2019, I along with a partner developed Camp SOAR. This is an outdoor recreation summer program. Our goal is to allow campers the luxury of an old-school daily camp program outdoors in nature, instead of inside on devices. This program is very successful and each year it grows. Visit our site to learn more about our program. www.NazzyCampSoar.com. Due to these successes, we were able to establish our own nonprofit in 2021.
That is my tribe, now for my why? My greatest achievement has been being a Mother, a job to which I am completely devoted and is my top priority! My children's safety and happiness is my daily work!
Hi my name is Jen Karve. I am also part of the administrative team for Nazzy Moms Unite.
I am mom to Kiera and Zack. My husband, Ravi and I moved into Bushkill Township in 2007 from New Jersey. We love living in Nazareth and think it is a fabulous place to raise our children. We have gotten fabulous support both from the Nazareth Area School District and from our community at large. It’s important to me to give back to the community.
I am excited to be a part of Nazzy Mom’s Unite. I hope that this group can be a support to our schools and our community. I look forward to working with all of you to make a difference!
My name is Jennifer Owen and I am the NMU's website administrator. I am a strategy + business development consultant for small businesses owners at Ask Mrs. Owen.
I grew up in New Jersey and am still friends with fifteen of my friends from Kindergarten. (We still go out together for dinner every quarter!) My husband Michael and I wanted the same for our own two children, Connor and Bridget. So the four of us moved to Nazareth in 2012 just in time for Connor to start Kindergarten. Both of our children have special needs and we felt that if they grew up with the same children, they would be more accepted as they grow and develop. We also wanted to develop relationships with other parents of special needs families.
We are proud of the community of friends that we are building for our family. We are also thankful for the NMU's educational topics that allow us to grow and develop as parents.
