As a Registered Nurse specializing in NICU and Labor & Delivery for over twelve years, Melissa is also a mother of three. A dedicated professional, she is a tremendous source of information for new parents and is passionate about sharing her knowledge about the best possible baby care. After the birth of her first child, she became increasingly interested in studies on the sleep habits of newborns, and saw a need for quality in-home newborn nursing care and education for new parents in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Melissa founded Newborn Nightingales in 2012 and is committed to helping parents establish a nurturing, caring and calm environment. She places only the most qualified Nurses and Nightingales, training all of her team members on best practices for developmentally appropriate newborn care and sleep training.
Melissa was recently elected to the board for the Mother’s Milk Bank of North Texas. In addition, she was a featured speaker for the Bump, Baby & Beyond event in Dallas in 2014 and The Dallas Mom’s Blog Bloom event in 2016.
