I often get called the most connected mom in Hoboken, NJ, but that title rightfully belongs to Cathy Tennaro. A former sales executive who began staying home when her company offered a buyout, everywhere you go you see her pushing a stroller with three red pony-tailed girls in tow. A Girl Scout troop leader and tireless organizer of school bake sales and fundraisers, Cathy shares cheerful greetings with at least three people on every block. Like the Pied Piper, Cathy can add dozens of engaged people to Facebook conversations within minutes of the first message.
In addition to caring for three children in preschool and elementary grades, Cathy runs a business selling handmade wine cork wreaths. With her youngest child now attending Abbott preschool, Hoboken school kids will soon benefit from her upbeat attitude and corporate smarts since she has answered the call to fill a dire need for public school substitute teachers.
What better way to celebrate Columbus Day than to salute the mom who cheerfully and unflinchingly faces great hurdles and and keeps her family and community moving forward every day?
