Welcome! I'm Melissa, a mom, developmental therapist, and the granddaughter of the real-life Rosie the Riveter! Knowing what good parenting looks like and being confident is important. I’m here to give you the "We Can Do It" inspiration needed when life gets difficult. My Rust Belt Grandma made life work during the hardest times in history, both living through the Great Depression and World War II. She was an unstoppable force. Let’s journey together using the insight she left with me to grow strong and resilient families, through whatever difficulty comes our way.
