Melissa Twomey was born and raised in Kelowna, BC. She resides here with her husband Marc and is lucky enough to have all her immediate family surrounding her. Melissa has her BA with a major in Psychology, a Masters in Counselling Psychology and extensive post-masters training in trauma-related work. Completing her Masters and working in the community to accomplish graduation requirements allowed her to see firsthand the lack of mental health support available. Melissa has a passion for helping others and supporting them through their journeys. She has taken her education and provided our mamas with mental health support from the early days of Mamas for Mamas.
