About the Novato Mothers Club

The Novato Mothers Club offers friendship and activities for mothers in Novato.  Events include family activities, mothers' nights out, holiday parties, playgroups, outreach to the community, and a rummage sale.  Members are required to volunteer two hours annually to an event or activity, or give a donation to offset the time if they cannot volunteer.  The club allows moms in Novato to meet and feel supported by other mothers of kids of all ages.  It is an especially great opportunity for those new to Novato who want to meet new friends.  Read more about our events and member benefits.

Our Board consists of a dedicated group of members that are committed to ensuring the success of the Novato Mothers Club. We feel it is important to make sure all our members and their families feel welcomed, supported, and actively involved in our events and activities. 

NMC Co-Directors



Tiara Johnson
Co-Director

Tiara has been an NMC member since 2018, has two young boys (2018 and 2021), and an urban quail farm in her backyard.  She is a member of the "Boo Crew" and Easter Egg Hunt committees and is incredibly passionate about her work with the NMC.



Sophia Osotio
Co-Director

My name is Sophia and I am a single mom to a sassy tween. We have lived in Novato since 2011. Prior to that, I lived and grew up in the East Bay (Hayward, Fremont area mostly). I moved to Novato so my mom could help me raise my daughter, but she moved back to the East Bay. Being so in love with this town, I stayed. I joined the club in 2011 after seeing the group in the 4th of July parade. I joined an amazing playgroup, with many of the moms becoming my closest friends. I absolutely adored all of the events and activities over the years, even as my daughter got older. I joined the board in 2014 and was a Co-Director from 2017-2019. Over the years, I have helped in almost every facet of the club in some capacity. In addition to being very involved in the club, I am a mobile notary and I work in the Novato office of the Neptune Society. You may often see me around as I am the volunteer coordinator for the Novato 4th of July Parade and serve on the City of Novato's Multicultural Advisory Commission.

NMC Board

The Novato Mothers Club is run by a group of almost 30 volunteer moms and one dad.  We have a lot of fun meeting each month over snacks while discussing fun plans for our group.  We are always looking for more members to join us!

Board commitments range from helping to plan a one-time event, planning monthly events, assisting with website/social media/administrative work, or whatever you are willing to put in! We also meet once a month (typically the first Wednesday of the month from 6:30-8:15pm)  to discuss upcoming events and initiatives, get out of the house, enjoy some time with other adults, and eat yummy food.

If you are interested in learning more about the board or adding your input to future events, we invite you to attend one of our meetings.  Joining a committee on the board is an excellent way to meet people and make sure your voice is heard.
