About The Author

Hi! I’m Melissa. I live in Oakland, CA. I’m a part-time nurse, full-time wife & mom of 2. One of the greatest perks of being a nurse is flexibility.  It makes it possible for me to still be a full-time mom to my children. It can be challenging at times; to take care of my patients, my family, then myself. But the reward it gives at the end of my every shift (in and out of the hospital) is fulfilling.

I created this blog firstly, for myself. But also to all working moms (and dads) who would like to learn more about how to take care of their families and keep them healthy. I’m not the best writer out there but I write about things that matter to me and writing is my way to destress, so I hope you find my entries enjoyable and insightful. Much love.
