Live Each Day – exploring life well-lived. 


the person behind
the brand

Well, hello there! Welcome to my corner of the internet where we explore life well-lived.

I’m Melissa, a 40-something executive turned creative entrepreneur. I’ve spent much of my life living in my head on the logical, orderly and analytical left side of my brain. All the while, the creative, imaginative, artistic right side of my brain has been fighting for its place in the world. 

I’ve served in executive leadership roles for the majority of my career. With a degree in accounting and a MBA, by training I’m a business person. I’m making a major life pivot to enter the world of online entrepreneurship where I can focus on my passions and creative energy.

I’ve decided to give myself the freedom to pursue a completely new path.

I’m a mother to 3 beautiful souls who offer me diverse lenses through which to view this world. These small humans might possibly teach me more about life than I teach them.

I’m fully dedicated to figuring out how to live this wild and crazy life in a meaningful way, and to help you do the same. In the words of late American poet Mary Oliver, 

“what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

a few fun facts about me

~ I’m a fierce foodie, a wine enthusiast, and an avid reader. Give me a good book, a hot cup of jo, a cozy blanket and I couldn’t be happier.

~ I have a passion for cooking and believe that preparing healthy meals for your family is an expression of love to be plated and savored.

~ Writing frees my soul and I’ve longed for a career that allows me to fill my days with creative writing.

~ After an art class with my daughter, I developed a love for painting with watercolors. My creative, right brain is fighting for its place in this world.

~ I love all things nature – kayaking, gardening, camping, hiking. The answer to almost any of life’s hardest questions can be found in the calmness of the water or in the peace of nature.

 ~ I’m a lifelong learner, INTJ, Enneagram 5, Objective Thinker, and a Futuristic Visionary.

My 3 kids play a ton of sports. You will find me driving halfway across the state to ensure I don’t miss a game. I will always be there.

~ I was a Chief Financial Officer at age 21 and helped save a small community hospital from closing. I was highly under-qualified for the role at the time, but it was offered to me based solely on my integrity. With grit, determination, and a solid team, we pulled off a complete financial turnaround.

~ By giving myself the time, space, and freedom to explore my passions, I’ve completely rediscovered who I was before the world got to me. I’ve made it my mission to help others do the same.
