Hi there, I'm Melissa. Life as a military spouse has taken my family and me on quite the adventure, from one move to another, with four kids and a dog in tow. Now, as I venture into my 40s, I'm finding the rhythm of this new chapter alongside the hustle and bustle of family life.

My career is dedicated to women's health, a field that's both my passion and my daily work. This focus has become even more relevant as I've entered my 40s, bringing to light the shared experiences of women at this stage of life. It's clear to me now more than ever that we need a space to share, support, and sometimes simply laugh together about the ups and downs we face.

That's why I started Suburban Crunch—a blog where we can talk openly about everything from family dynamics and personal growth to the nitty-gritty of women's health as we age. It's a place for us to unite over our collective experiences, whether they're challenging, joyful, or somewhere in between.

Here's to making the most of our 40s together, learning from each other, and building a community that celebrates the real, sometimes messy, but always beautiful journey of midlife.

Welcome, and I'm so glad you're here.

It's me, Melissa
