Collin County Moms is produced by local moms for local moms and to connect local families with the county, each other, and local businesses. We believe that with the right resources you can make decisions that are best for your family! Our team (writers, events team, and executive team) is made up of local moms who are involved in their communities, local schools, philanthropic and activism organizations, and who are raising their families in Plano, Allen, McKinney, Frisco, and surrounding suburbs. We come from different backgrounds, belief sets, faiths, educational experiences, cultural experiences, parenting philosophies, and have definite taco preferences. Above all else, our mission is to remind you that you’re not alone on this parenting journey and we’re here for you!
Collin County Moms (originally named Collin County Moms Blog) was founded as an expansion site of Dallas Moms by Krystal Hurst. Krystal helped develop Collin County Moms as an influential parenting resource before stepping down as owner in 2022.
Meet The Founder
FounderKrystal is a Dallas-native who began her career as a fourth grade teacher in Richardson RISD, but quickly changed paths to became a stay-at-home mom in 2011. Through a happy coincidence, she stumbled upon (what was then known as) Dallas Moms Blog in 2012 and found a community she’d been looking for since coming a mom. Shortly after joining the team, she gratefully accepted the “baton” passed to her as new owner of the site, and took off with it running full speed! Krystal not only helped to grow Dallas Moms into a large parenting resource, but also launched Collin County Moms in 2016; providing those in the north Dallas suburbs their community resource platform. While building a community, uniting the moms, and growing a business around this passion was a dream come true, after almost 10 years, Krystal officially stepped down as owner, and is now focusing on raising her 4 boys with her husband, Tim, and rediscovering old hobbies.
