Our Village Co-Captain: Westshore Plaza
Hi! I'm Melissa. I was born and raised in Miami, graduated from Bucknell in Pennsylvania, and lived in DC for 6 years. My husband and I moved to Tampa in January 2014 from Baton Rouge, LA when I was 7 months pregnant. While living in Baton Rouge, I ran a homeless shelter for children, which challenged, fulfilled, and consumed me. Moving to Tampa and becoming a stay at home mom were difficult changes for me, but when I joined stroller strides in 2015, I met some really great moms. Stroller strides is something I look forward to each week and I'm excited about organizing fun events!
