After having tea at Cristina Harty’s home a few years ago, Melissa knew the Lord had brought these friends together for His glory. Not only were Melissa and Cristina fast friends, but also, they both had a love of the Lord and a love of helping women. It was at this moment Melissa became involved through marketing and design to help NBM move forward in their mission to help women thrive in their lives!
Melissa accepted the Lord in 2008, but knew He was there throughout her life. After enduring her husband’s long military deployments on her own with a child at home and one on the way, she chose God to help her from that moment on instead of doing life alone. Since then, Melissa has worked for and volunteered for many non-profits using her gifts to help get the word out and make a difference.
Currently, Melissa resides in Colorado Springs with her husband of 12 years, two children, Ellie (9) and Levi (6), and extra-large Yorkie, Harley (11). She owns a photography business where she finds joy by capturing candid moments for families and couples. Also, Melissa volunteers for Focus on the Family as a online mentor - encouraging women in an online world that is often filled with negatively, she literally is the light in the dark online world.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
Psalm 119:105 NIV
