In 2013, Melissa decided to take a break from her 8+ year Corporate Marketing career and stay home with her first son, Noah. Over the next couple of years, she mom'd hard and had another beautiful son, Leo, in 2015. These were the years that Melissa was called to her yoga practice more than ever. Being a mother was the best thing ever, but it also took her on a wild ride of ups and downs with the only stable and constant thing being yoga. Yoga was where she found her lost self. Where she could take one whole hour alone to recenter and give herself some much needed self-care. Her mat is where her passions began to speak to her again, where she felt alive, and where it became clear that she is exactly where she is suppose to be.
Melissa had been wanting to do Teacher Training for several years and 2018 finally felt like the perfect time. She graduated from Ra's Teacher Training program in March 2018 and has been sharing her love and passion for the practice ever since. Forever a student and always growing in mind, body and spirit.
