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.

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.

Hi - my name is Laleh, mum of an amazing 4 y/o daughter named Sharan. I am a physiotherapist and moved to Oman from Iran in 2019. Since I joined Muscat Mums, I started to know a lot of lovely people and in a short time I felt like home - knowing people I can count on and have fun with. I love Oman because of its peaceful atmosphere and so many beautiful places you can explore. My hobbies are cooking, baking, music and singing. I found peace in them. I believe the whole point of life is about listening,understanding and feel each other’s music and the energy comes from us. Only in this way we can be less judgmental and more at peace with ourself and others. Looking forward to see you all and make great memories.

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.

I moved to Sohar in 2016 to teach in Al Batinah International School as a Learning Support teacher. In 2018 I moved to Muscat to join my husband and had Noah and became a full-time mommy. We have been very fortunate to have lots of support through my husband’s family who have been in Oman for a very long time. They have allowed us to continue saving the world through Pandemic or conquering the lands of Catan, some of our favorite board games. I also enjoy eating out or making a mess in the kitchen. I look forward to meeting you all!
