While living in Boulder, Colorado for college, Melissa fell in love yoga, and meditation. Melissa is a Denver native. Growing up as the middle child of 5 kids her temperament is empathetic and social. You can often times find her reading books, hiking, and spending time with her three dogs. With an adventurous personality she is an early adopter and influencer of all things tech and wellness.
Melissa has worked for startups since she was 15, and those who know her would say that entrepreneurship is in her blood. After graduating from college, she brought a music content with interactive digital advertising company over to the states from Europe. She spent a short time living in Amsterdam and acted as the liaison between the parent company and the US subsidiary; the end result was nationwide licensee based distribution in the US. Melissa was then recruited to a venture backed high-tech startup, of internet and cloud based security, where she continued to focus internationally on business development.
Two and a half years ago, Melissa liberated herself from the corporate world and allowed herself a 6 month sabbatical to study and immerse herself in yoga. This is when she confirmed that her passion in life was to make the world a better place through yoga, meditation, mindfulness, and wellness.
Melissa went on to bring a mindfulness program to a Denver Public School, C3, and work with a variety of private and elite clients. Her entrepreneurial spirit prevailed and at the request to take on yet another client, she expanded her solo enterprise and created Mindfully Curated. Melissa’s team and client list continues to grow. Looking to the future Melissa aims to be at the forefront of blending technology and wellness, including offering Virtual Wellness Experiences through Mindfully Curated.
