Dancing since the tender age of five, Mel has traveled the world dancing, teaching and performing on stages such as the world famous Copa Cabana in New York City and across the globe in Japan, Europe, and Latin America. Latin dance became Mel's passion; music was her refuge and the stage became her saving grace. In 2007, the grand opening of her dance studio located in Brooklyn, NY aired all across the world on MTV TR3S. A lifelong dream shortly lived. After closing the doors to her dance studio, Mel and her husband became the parents of a beautiful baby boy. Although still dancing, teaching and performing locally, her primary focus became her family. In 2013, Mel hung up her dancing shoes, retired from dance and gave her life to the Lord. Mel no longer dances for the world, rather, her praise and worship is for Jesus. He has radically transformed her life, restored her family and is the foundation of everything she does. In 2017, Mel became the founder of WIFE'D, a ministry for married women. Today, Mel has combined her love for dance, personal fitness, and women, more importantly, Jesus, all for the purpose of bringing together women and their stories and becoming ONE with Jesus.
