Meet our Team

Muscat Mums is run entirely by volunteers and many of them take up more than one role within the organisation.  Here is a short introduction by each coordinator to give you an idea of their background and experience at Muscat Mums. If you are interested in volunteering for any of the roles please do let us know as there are always opportunities coming up as mums move country or their children grow up. 


Chair

I am Shabana Noble, a mum to 3 amazing children (Girls - 24 & 21, Boy - 7). I am a counselling psychologist by profession and hands on mum 24/7/365. My last few years I moved from Dubai to India to Oman and have been in Oman since Nov 2019.

I love the calmness and serenity of Oman and the fact that beaches & mountains provide enough & more of travelling/outlets/picnics/holidays.

My hobbies include travelling, swimming and I love reaching out to mums that are in distress with regards to various challenges they face with their children.

I joined Muscat Mums shortly after moving and it has been a great way of meeting people and getting to know my way around. I am very excited to come onboard as the Financial Officer and Adventurers & Muscateers coordinator and am really looking forward to meeting you all. I hope you will join us soon as we continue adventuring

Treasurer

Hi, I’m Anna. I’ve lived in Muscat since 2013. I’m British and my husband is Omani so as a family we have a big connection to this beautiful country. My daughter was born here in 2015 and I joined Muscat Mums when she was about 6 months old and have loved it ever since. I’ve made great friends along the way and it has been more than a lifeline in adapting to my new life. I’ve helped out in various areas, but now I’m the Treasurer.



Secretary

Hello! My name is Lindy and I am a British mum of two beautiful little girls, born in 2019 and 2021. My husband and I have lived in Muscat since 2016 and we love the Sultanate for its beaches, mountains and laid back way of life.

Muscat Mums has been an amazing resource for my girls and I. We've made new friends at the weekly playdates and absolutely adore the libraries that we have access to. I am very happy to be able to help the team to continue with the amazing work they have been doing for us all.

I look forward to meeting many more new faces and seeing our Muscat Mums community grow.

Hello, I’m Hayley and mum to 19mth old Sophie. I have lived in Muscat since March 2018. Beforehand I was living in Dubai for nearly 10 years.

Since having Sophie in Jan 2020, I’ve managed to make a few friends through Muscat Mums and I’m so grateful for the network we have.

I hope, as restrictions start to lift, we can organize more play dates and events for us and our little ones. Would be lovely to meet you all!

Website &Social Media and Book Library Coordinator 

Hi, I'm Akshara from India and I moved to Muscat, Oman in October 2019. This is my first move away from family and friends and Muscat Mums is my way of connecting with new people. I have two girls - 8 years old and 5 years old - who keep me on my toes when I would rather just curl up with a book!

An ex-marketing professional with more than a decade of experience, I enjoy social media far too much. On the plus side, I am always available for a chat - come say Hi anytime!


Event Coordinator

My name is Archia and I am from The Netherlands. I have recently joined Muscat Mums as one of the event coordinators . I have been in Oman since 2012 and love calling it home. My Muscat friends are more like family now. I have twins boys (18 months old) Essa and Musa and they are the reason I joined Muscat mums.

We are looking forward to making more friends and memories. I am super excited to be part of the Muscat mums team as I have always loved planning and executing events and make a big deal out of every occasion.


Event & Bulletin Coordinator

Hi there mums of Muscat!

My name is Tatjana and I am from Serbia. I am also a mother to a wonderful 16 month old boy, named Jacob who just keeps me active and happy 99% of the time. I’ve moved to Muscat in 2013 and as this is not my first experience living as an expat, it still made me instantly feel like at home. Ever since, I’ve worked full time in International Schools in various roles. I’ve made great friends during this time and look forward to making even more through MM. I’ve joined the group since my son was born and have ever since enjoyed all the benefits and perks of being a member. This year, I am excited to become one of the coordinators in MM and helping develop this lovely small, but significant community.



   


Toy Library Coordinator

Howdy! I'm Jenny and I and am very happy to be able to help out in this terrific service. Our goal is to provide MMs a way to help enrich, entertain, and most of all, distract their little ones through the magic of new-to-them toys. I am mom to a very spirited toddler named River and a newborn named Zoe, who was delivered here. We’ve been in Muscat since September 2018 and I’ve been a MM member since October 2018. I am Vietnamese-American, born and raised in Houston, TX and have a background in Architecture. I appreciate the creative arts, and love cooking and trying new recipes, so please let me know if you have any great ones! I also love traveling with my family but we’re still learning (through trial and error) how to do it seamlessly. I look forward to supporting Muscat Mums and this wonderful community! Hope to meet you soon.
