Mels 2nd Act

Welcome! I’m Melanie and this site is dedicated to women going through the midlife years and beyond.

​My passion is encouraging and motivating women to live their best life mentally, physically, and spiritually, regardless of age.

On my blog, I’ll share some personal experiences, some organizational and planning tips, and whatever else strikes my fancy. I’ve never really liked to be boxed in and even less the older I get.

A little background on me:

​I’ve been married to my best friend since 1989 and I have 2 young adult children and 1 daughter in love.  I also have 2 of the cutest fur family, a Maltese and Morkie.

Professionally, I have worked as Director of Sales & Marketing, Pharmaceutical sales,  owner of an event planning business, and for the past 20 years was an Owner/Recruiter for an Executive Search Firm. I love networking, connecting, and building relationships.

After our kids moved off on their own, we decided to sell our family home and take on a huge remodel and I would manage it. So, I  closed down my Executive Search firm and dove into finding and managing contractors.  Hopefully, I’ll get around to posting that story at some point.

One of the things that have been on my “someday list” is to start blogging and in 2019 I finally did that.

I write from the perspective of a midlife woman who has rediscovered passions, open to possibilities, and living with a purpose.

I hope you will enjoy reading the blog posts.  Please share comments on the posts or send me an email.  I always enjoy hearing from you!
