I’m Melissa, first-time mom, infertility advocate, fan of Jesus, grace, and encouraging others.

I’m so thankful you’re here!

Hey! I’m Melissa, Founder of Living in the Wait. I created this online resource to encourage and guide those who find themselves in a period of uncertainty wondering when their wait will end. Know this, even in your waiting, you can live life to the fullest.

I created this site from my own experience of waiting, which was 3 1/2 years of navigating infertility.

I’m a first-time mom, writer, speaker, infertility advocate and seasoned event planner who enjoys all things related to logistics and details.

I love to strike up a conversation with everyone I meet. Hearing your stories and connecting on a personal level is what energizes me!

I’ve been featured on several popular podcasts, respected infertility websites and was the cover story for the largest readership magazine in my tri-state region. 

I’m a huge fan of generosity, grace, planners, asking questions and encouraging others. In my spare time, you’ll find me in the great outdoors or watching college sports with my guy, Ry, and one-year-old daughter, Crosbee, the coolest person I know.

Fertility Coaching

I’m a woman who navigated infertility and felt totally unprepared.

So, I decided to change that and help others like me.

My experience comes from Living Through Infertility, not just reading about it online or in a textbook.

Let’s be friends!

Success! You're on the list.
