About Melissa
I grew up in a small town in Ohio, and work opportunities moved me around, including eventually to the east coast. I was living in Chicago when a great opportunity came up. I thought I'd move out here for a few years, make some money and do some cool stuff, and then move back. Instead, I met the man of my dreams, sold my home in Chicago and had three kids. I'm so happy I was wrong.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

Best advice you've ever been given

It's better to do something than to do nothing.

Personal Passions, Charities, Hobbies:

Besides travel, I enjoy tennis, yoga and reading.

What do you want to achieve in 2018, personally and professionally?

I launched my company and now I'm in a learning phase. I want to learn how the customers interact with the brand and figure out what changes I need to make to the offering before I start marketing more aggressively. So, my business goals are to prove (or disprove) my initial demand, growth and CAC hypothesis and to make rapid changes where necessary.

On the personal side, my goal is always to travel one new place each year, read one new book each year, and to keep the romance alive in my marriage.

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:

Heights. And Donald Trump.

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

Awareness and trial.

If you could tell your 20 year old self one thing, what would it be?

Don't worry so much what other people think - be true to yourself and you can't go wrong.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I love the idea of women supporting women. I've seen how powerful men's networks are, and it's high time we had our girls network!
