Amelia Torres

Amelia is a newlywed mom of 3. Typically she goes by mom or mom-mom. Her 9 year old son has battled health issues his whole life and has a Facebook account to bring awareness to his story and to Narcolepsy. As a young and single mom navigating life after the military, she found a love of the community and resources available. Now married and a stay at home mom with 2 daughters, 2 and 10 months, she tries to stay as involved as possible. With a love of health and wellness, Amelia can be found doing yoga or participating in some activity with the kids. You can find her cheering on her son in basketball, soccer, and taekwando during most weekends. Coffee, wine, and a good book take up any alone time, and she recently became an ambassador for the Bettendorf Public Library. She is a big supporter of breastfeeding and mental health, and always open about the good, the bad, and the ugly of motherhood.
