    As some of you already know, I will be letting go of my WebMD communities on 9/24.

    On this community, you are lucky to have Lainey joining you as moderator. For the next two weeks, she will shadow me here getting to know the community-piping in here and there.

    Please welcome her and Lainey, if you will, introduce yourself.

    Thanks so much Louise and hello community!

    My name is Lainey and I am very happy to be your new moderator. I have worked as a moderator for almost 5 years now.

    I am the mother of 6 children. 4 children are grown and 2 are teens. I am also a grandmother of 3. We are a nuclear family and very proud of all our children. My husband (of 14 years) is a firefighter and also owns a construction business.

    Looking forward to getting better acquainted with this community and helping in any way I can.

    Lainey :)
