Meet Melissa Gish
Melissa is a foster parent trainer and works with families in the Roanoke Valley. Melissa has two daughters and was unsuccessful in breastfeeding her first, which made her passionate about the breastfeeding relationship and being successful with her second. Melissa is the founder of Star City Milk Makers, a breastfeeding support group for Roanoke and the surrounding communities. Melissa has been happy to provide a platform for mothers to receive support and create successful breastfeeding relationships. Melissa is excited to bring her passion and experience working with families to better serve our communities and increase breastfeeding rates right here at home.
