Melissa joined Blossom's Board of Directors in 2020. She started coming to Blossom's parent-baby groups after the birth of her daughter in 2019. The Blossom community helped her embrace new motherhood after a challenging delivery and a move to the Bay. In previous lives, Melissa was a scientist and then a management consultant. In her current role, she combines many of her identities: scientist, business person, and mother, working in the women's health biotech industry. She's passionate about empowering expecting and new parents with the support and knowledge to thrive in their road ahead.
