About the Author

Married for 24 years with 2 teenage boys, Melanie Gomez’s passion is to share the message to every special needs mom that there is joy, there is purpose and there is hope in their journey.

With a master’s degree and years of experience in the corporate world, Melanie now finds herself  an expert in the non-traditional areas of: care-giving, juggling multiple social and therapeutic schedules, chauffeuring, and cheerleading for her family.   Her favorite hobby is encouraging other women and moms, whether over a cup of tea in her living room, or on a stage before a multitude.

Melanie, husband Tony, and boys Ben and Nick, recently moved from Chicago back to their native Florida, where they are looking forward to sunshine and flip flops all year long.

  1. Melanie,
    I am sure you are an inspiration to a lot of parents dealing with special needs children. I loved reading your steps for training and I know your family is proud of all the wonderful things you have accomplished.
    Keep up the good work and there is a St Jude run in Nashville and would love for you to run in it and stay with me.We will be your cheering team!!!!


    • Thank you so much Barbara. I’m so honored you took the time to read my posts 🙂 I sure do love Nashville, I will see about planning a trip back soon and will stay in touch.
