Hi friends!

I’m Melissa! I sat down to write this “about me” section and y’all…this crap is hard to do! There are a lot of things I could say about myself that will make me sound fancy or important but really, what I want more than anything is to let my little piece of the internet be a place where you feel welcome and encouraged and excited to do BIG things! I’ve been an entrepreneur for over 15 years, building a successful photography business by showing people how beautiful they are in real life, speaking at conferences and retreats that empower women to go do the big scary things in their businesses they’ve been dreaming about, and creating a community of strong, brave, amazing oilers who are looking to take care of themselves and their families with plant based goodness. I’ve been scared to evolve at times but God’s goodness is all over me and resting in that affords me the ability to not sit on my hands when new things are stirred in my heart and I don’t want you sitting on your hands either! Don’t you ever let anyone tell you you CAN’T do it all…because you can. You can mom and run a successful business. You can start a podcast and be president of the PTO at the same time. You can grow a business with 6 figures in annual sales and do it with people you adore and keep your integrity intact. My goal is to be encourage others to step outside of their fear to chase dreams…it’s really uncomfortable at times but worth it. I love Jesus. I drink a LOT of coffee. I am a 2w3 on the enneagram...married to the most solid 8 you've ever met in your life.  I love The Office, Parks and Rec, and New Girl. I hate eating alone and being in nature when there are lots of bugs out. OK...I'm indoorsy.  I love feeding people. There is always room at the table for you…you matter here. <3
