Endless Mountain MOMSnext Steering Committee Members

I am Tina Colton and I am the Coordinator and in charge of Publicity this year. I have lived in Wellsboro for 26 years. I moved here right after college where I was fortunate to be blessed with a teaching position as a fifth-grade teacher for Wellsboro Area School District and met my husband, Bill. We built a house soon after being married and have two children, Noah, a freshman at Asbury University, and Abigail, a high school sophomore. I have a passion to live my life for Christ and emulate Him in all I do. I enjoy reading, singing, playing the piano, playing games, and camping with my family.


My name is Lori Kennedy, and I am a Hospitality Coordinator for MOMSnext this year. I live in Wellsboro with my husband, Brett, and our four sons. Landen is 18 and a freshman at Messiah College. Holden,16, is a junior. Karsen,14, a freshman, and Riley, 11, is in sixth grade. Our adult daughter, Lorynn, lives just down the road from us. This year marks my 20th year of teaching at Northern Tioga School District, where I teach sixth grade math and science at R.B. Walter Elementary in Tioga. I truly love my job! Brett is the senior pastor of the Vineyard Church of Wellsboro. Together we strive to raise our family to love God, love each another, and love their community. My hobbies include baking, reading, bicycling, kayaking, traveling, and, most importantly, walking my dog, Bentley.


Rachel Smith – Creative Activities -- I recently left my engineering career to be a stay-at-home mom with my 7-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son…and I am loving it! Shortly after moving to Wellsboro 5 years ago, I started attending MOPS and have enjoyed getting involved in steering. I was so excited to hear about MOMSnext starting up in our area and enjoyed attending the meetings for the last two years. I am looking forward to sharing my love of crafting with the group this year!


I am Crystal DelRio, Creative Activities Assistant, and I am a married mother of three daughters. Dresden (12), Tegan (9), and Hayden (2). We have lived in Wellsboro for almost five years and absolutely love it! My husband Tony and I were born and raised in southern California and definitely miss it but we do enjoy our friends and the area we live here in town. I love to draw, listen to music, and do lots of outdoor activities like hiking, biking, taking pictures and going to Mops/MOMSnext!

Hello, my name is Carole Frank and I am a mentor with MOMSnext.  I have recently retired from a career in health care and am enjoying finding what the definition of retired is!  My husband of 41 years and I have a family of seven which includes 5 adult children and 2 grandchildren.  We like to travel, visit our children, and work together doing what God asks of us.  I love being a part of MOMSnext, sharing my life experience (flaws, joys and hardships) and hope to inspire young women to embrace freedom to become Free Indeed.
