Layla Lisiewski is a mom of four and CEO of The Local Moms Network, a platform of local resources for moms by moms. After graduating Brown University, where Layla studied international relations and was a Division 1 Lacrosse player, Layla spent six successful years at Merrill Lynch in NYC before becoming a Mom. Upon returning to her hometown of Greenwich, CT Layla was eager to connect and share resources with other moms and create a sense of community for herself, driven by a love for the town she lived in. It all started in Layla’s kitchen in Greenwich and fast forward 5 years, The Local Moms Network has established a national brand that is recognized as a parent’s modern-day connection to their community. “We exist to help moms and parents navigate all the choices they face and feel comfortable in their town by providing valuable trustworthy resources and opportunities for connection.”
Following her lifelong passion of horseback riding, Layla is also the Managing Director of the Greenwich Riding and Trails Association (GRTA).
