Go Valley Kids is a complete community guide for family activities and information in Northeast Wisconsin, focusing on the Fox Valley area. As proud local moms we love sharing all our community has to offer by educating, entertaining and empowering families to lead happy, healthy lives.
As the owner and publisher of Go Valley Kids I am passionate about connecting families with resources and businesses in our community. Born and raised in Appleton, Wisconsin, Amanda Chavez has a love for her community. As a busy mom of 2 little girls, she and her husband are always on the lookout for fun things to do and share with others. Go Valley Kids combines all of her passions –motherhood, design and community. Some of her other interests also peak through on GVK including baking, photography and sewing!
Liz was raised in Wisconsin and returned with her husband and children nine years ago. They've been exploring all of the old familiar places and lots of new ones too. She is an avid fan of coffee, tea, and tacos. When she manages to steal free time without a pile of laundry, she knits like a mad woman.
Katherine Freund is a professional librarian with a passion for the arts and smelly food. Not surprisingly, Katherine loves to read and collect books. When Katherine is not fermenting foods or paging through books, she enjoys walking her husband or watching cult classics with her snarky teenage children.
Veronika is a work from home mom, birth and documentary photographer, and writer. Her husband is a high school art teacher and artist, and her two daughters, four and six years old, are following in his footsteps and making sure to leave their marks on every piece of white trim in their Appleton home. When not spending too long thinking of (what she thinks are) witty Facebook captions, Veronika can be found either hanging out with her kids, binge watching Netflix with her husband, laying on the couch gestating (due with #3 in July!), or hiding in a corner of a laboring mothers’ birthing space taking pictures and making films.
