Melissa lives in Northwest Montana. She is a dedicated wife and mother to four boys, the eldest one being her Marine. She is a Home Educator, substitute teacher for the local Christian School Academy, and CEO of her home. In her spare time she enjoys reading, journaling, baking, volunteering in her community, participating in various military outreach programs, and hiking the mountains of Montana with her husband and sons. While she and her husband both come from a long line of men who have served in various branches of the Armed Forces, their son is the first Marine in the family, and they are all incredibly proud of him.
After learning about MarineParents from her son's Recruiter during bootcamp, Melissa became an active participant in the MP Facebook groups, gaining a wealth of knowledge and support along the way. Inspired by her Marine's commitment, dedication, and willingness to serve his country, Melissa joined the MarineParents team to help show her support for all Marines, military personnel, their families, and her country. She is committed to doing all that she can as a MP volunteer and MoM (Mother of a Marine), on the home front by participating in various outreach programs, letter writing campaigns, and military awareness events, as well as offering words of encouragement, support, and guidance to all who may need it.
