I'm a busy mom who loves to help others. I have 2 biological children, 1 stepchild, I foster children and I'm married to my best friend. I'm a born and raised Tampa native and couldn't imagine raising my family anywhere else
In addition to my work on TBMG I am the "Mom" on Daytime TV's Ask the Mom Segment. I also am proud to work with and have contributed to WFLA's News Channel 8, WTSP 10 News, Bay News 9, Fox 13 News, Tampa Bay Times, Good Living Magazine, and Tampa Bay Parenting Magazine among other media outlets.
I love helping moms and advocating for families and supporting them. I truly hope you find support and something fun on TBMG.
Rhonda Hoornstra aka Ralynn67
Graphic Designer &
Lead Event Cordinator
I love being a part of this group because I have met some wonderful people through it. I love planning and finding event's around the Tampa Bay Area. I grew up in Omaha, NE and studied Art, Photography, and Interior Design. After much thought I moved here to Tampa to pursue a career in Fashion Design which I have an Associates Degree in. I also have a Bachelors in Marketing & Advertising and an Associates Degree for my true passion Graphic Design. You can check out my Facebook page HERE.
I have been busy college wise , but even busier with my four children. I gained my Step-Daughter when I met my husband and we then added 4 boys to our family..My oldest has Autism Spectrum Disorder. I love Design, Music, and Reading. It's mainly why I surf the web so much to find new and inspiring ideas.
Social Media Admin, Writer & Fitness Challenge Founder
I'm a busy mom of 4- 2 are in college, one is a homeschooled middle schooler and the youngest is a competitive dancer.
I've been married for 23 years to a man who still makes me laugh and am a native Floridian.
I've been with TBMG from the beginning and run the fitness challenges helping moms become more fit and healthy.
I love to blog, I hate working out and will graduate with my AA in December (eventually I'll get my bachelor's degree in communications or marketing.... maybe). I volunteer at my daughter's school and am on the PTA at the dance studio. I really need there to be more hours in the day!
It's the creation of moms who just wanted a way to connect with each other for support, events and real relationships. Motherhood is hard but it should never be lonely and moms at their core are all the same...
We want what's best for our children and that unites us!
So before Facebook became the preferred form of social interaction, before it was more common to go online from your phone than your computer, way back when moms found it hard to get advice and form lasting relationships... we created Tampa Bay Moms Group (TBMG).
Amazingly enough, we have transferred our websites success to social media while still keeping our online presence strong. We evolve with our members and offering them more of what they want and more ways to connect in the methods that best fit a busy moms lifestyle.
And our success has allowed our site, staff and members to be featured on
Whether you are here to check for local activities, entering giveaways, looking for friends or just have a question, TBMG has something for every mom.
Our members are vast, varied and unique and it's that positive community both online and off that makes TBMG not only Tampa Bay largest local online forum but also it's best. We look forward to connecting with you.
Feel free to reach out to us anytime! We'd love to hear from you!
