My name is Melissa and I am the Franchisee and instructor for FIT4MOM of Madison. My husband Matt and I have two children age 10 and 12 that keep us very busy. Our family moved down to Alabama from the North East in June of 2015 and we absolutely love it here.
I was a part of Stroller Strides 10 years ago when I owned a franchise in Monterey, CA. At the time my kids were both very young and Stroller Strides really served as a vital life line to me during a season of life when I felt like I was just learning as I went. I struggled with feeling inadequate as a mom and not quite knowing how to be ME and also be MOM to my kids. The other moms I met at Stroller Strides were supportive, loving and most importantly living the same season that I was.
Fast forward to now and my kids are considerably older but my passion for Stroller Strides and FIT4MOM (on a whole) has not changed. I truly believe that it takes a village. We all need support and love and encouragement as we try to parent the best way we know how. It is an honor and a blessing to be able to provide the same Village of support here in Madison that I was so fortunate to have when my kids were small.
