Your Name: Mimi Brock Moseley
Your bio: Mimi hails originally from Atlanta, where she honed her skills in encouragement.
“Southerners are all about building courage into others to be their best while making the choice to be sweet in the process,” she says.
The encouragement calling started in her high school years as a cheerleader where she found encouragement was what she was made to do. This calling continued through college at the University of West Georgia and today.
Mimi and her husband, Marty, moved to Redding six years ago to be closer to their sons and their families. Marty’s love of winemaking was celebrated by their friends and, shortly after their arrival in Redding, they open Moseley Family Cellars. The first location was downtown in the Gateway building. Mimi loved downtown and quickly immersed herself in a downtown business association and became a class member of Leadership Redding. Leadership Redding set her on the path of knowledge about the city, solidifying her love of Redding.
Today Mimi is actively involved on the Shasta Library Foundation, as well as the Steering Committee of Leadership Redding. She also strives to promote and support One SAFE Place, Turtle Bay and as many nonprofits as possible.
“As Redding business owners, our heart is to impact our city in unique ways to help it become an even better place to live,” she says. “Do what you can with what is in your hand.”
Mimi is also serving on the team to elect Julie Winter to City Council. She also worked on Measure B in the last election, where she said, “Working on local issues has reignited my belief that my vote can make a difference. And it has.” Mimi first heard about The Women’s Fund from Judy Salter. Even before the first meeting, she knew she wanted to be a part of women helping women and children in Shasta County and The Women’s Fund was the avenue to bring that change.
Mimi is also a motivational speaker and the author of the in-law relationship book “Arm Around Shoulder/Hand Over Mouth.”
She has “two amazing daughters-in-law and four fabulous grandchildren.”
Mimi says she’s “crazy in love” with Redding and “honored to serve this great city.”
