Melisa, originally from Miami, FL, has lived in Chicago for 15 years. She graduated from Interior Design school at Harrington College of Design and after working in the field for a bit, she opened her own flower shop in 2008. She decided to close her shop 3 months after her daughter was born in 2015 and quickly noticed she needed structure back in her life. She learned about Fit4mom through a new moms group and immediately signed up. She attended stroller strides 3 times a week and was hooked. Stroller Strides for her is more than fitness it is a community of amazing Moms. After almost 2 years, she decided to become a stroller stride instructor. She looks forward to sharing the Fit4mom love to other moms.
