Meet our Owners

Julie Sasse

Co-Owner and Co-Founder

Born at St. Vincents, Julie has lived in Birmingham nearly all her life. Before having kids and co-founding Birmingham Mom Collective, she worked various jobs as a retail and merchandise manager, a software support associate, and a recruiter. When she’s not taking care of her two young children, you can find her (sometimes) working out, singing and fellowshipping at her church, playing golf (horribly), drinking lots of caffeine, and taking trips with her husband, Nathan. She loves all things coffee, Dolly Parton, Gilmore Girls, Disney World, and peanut m&ms!

Jenny Yoon

Co-Owner and Co-Founder

Jenny-Lyn was born in Decatur, grew up in Ohio, and moved to Birmingham as a teenager. Her favorite things about Birmingham include sweet tea, the use of Sir and Ma’am, and the way people offer friendly smiles while out and about. Oh, and the food. Jenny’s background is sales and marketing, each of which she enjoys putting to use behind the scenes with Birmingham Mom Collective. After getting married, Jenny moved from Birmingham to Minneapolis where she invites anyone interested to visit around August. She’s strongly connected to Birmingham through friends, family, and of course Birmingham Mom Collective. Jenny and her husband Soo-Young have two sons, Michael and Jonathan. She guesses she’s officially a boy mom, and that’s a pretty good thing to be in her book.

Meet our Executive Team

Ashley

Managing Editor

Ashley lives in Leeds but is originally from the small, one-redlight town of Grant in North Alabama. She attended Auburn University where she met her husband, Ryan, and married him a couple of months after getting her Bachelors degree in 2011. Although she studied PreMed/Microbiology, she has never actually worked in the field. Instead, she has had many random jobs from seamstress to private English tutor to while helping her husband through seminary. Now she has her dream job of being a stay-at-home-mom to her two daughters; E is 4 and M is 2. Although her original dream of living overseas full-time isn’t likely to happen anytime soon, she is still involved in the internationals’ ministry at her church. When Ashley is not busy with her girls or church, she can be found cooking, scouring the internet for good deals, listening to music or podcasts, reading, or drinking coffee while doing any of the above.

Kristina

Social Media Manager

Kristina was born and raised in Seattle, Washington and moved to Helena at the end of 2019. She spent her early career working in the Psychology Department at the University of Washington as a Research Study Coordinator, and later transitioned to working at the UW Center for Child and Family Well-being as a Program Operations Specialist. After Kristina met and married her husband Landon (a traveling RN) in 2015, they ended the year with a cross country road trip and spent the next couple years traveling for Landon's work, bringing whatever they could cram into their Honda Civic. Her biggest adventure, however, has been becoming a stay-at-home-boy-mom to two active little boys! Kristina runs on caffeine and loves exploring the Birmingham area, being involved at church, trying out new recipes, doing at-home workouts in her closet, and being outside with her boys.
