Welcome to "8 Minutes with Melissa"! A little about me.
I'm Melissa, a wife, mother, and a passionate advocate for veterans. In between raising my five incredible children, ranging from 22 to 8 years old, I find solace in rescuing cats and kittens. There is a story behind that, but we will save that for another day.
For my day job, I am privileged to assist those who have bravely served our country, helping them find their dream homes.
Over the past two decades, I have dedicated my time to volunteering and making a positive impact in the lives of veterans. Their stories of resilience, sacrifice, and determination inspire me every day.
When I'm not immersed in the world of mortgage finance and serving our veterans, I indulge in my favorite hobbies. Traveling, writing, and reading allows me to explore new horizons, gain fresh perspectives, and find joy in life's simple pleasures. But if there's one place that truly brings me tranquility, it's the beach—it's my happy place, where the rhythmic sound of crashing waves and the gentle touch of sand beneath my feet create a symphony of serenity.
Through this blog, "8 Minutes with Melissa," I invite you to join me on my life's journey. Here, you'll find short articles that take no more than eight minutes to read—snippets of my adventures, insights, and musings about life, family, and the incredible experiences that shape me.
I hope to connect with you, as we navigate the beautiful chaos of everyday life together. So grab a cup of your favorite beverage, take a deep breath, and let's embark on this 8-minute adventure filled with laughter, inspiration, and heartfelt stories. Welcome aboard!
