The Women Connect4Good Team
Melissa Miller Young
Team Leader Melissa Miller Young works to keep the issues pertinent to Women Connect4Good at the forefront and loves working to help women find the tools they need to succeed, help one another and lead an empowered life. She enjoys coordinating the efforts of the WomenConnect4Good team and finds the opportunity to connect with thought leaders in the field and share their messages a dream come true. Melissa has spent over 25 years in the industry, working in both corporate and freelance settings. She shares her empty nest with her husband Gary, her dog Watson and two temperamental cats. Her daughter, Mallory, and son, Tyler, are both grown, and Melissa loves to spend as much time as possible with them, and extended friends and family.
Writer-producer Cathy Evans researches, schedules, coordinates and promotes Dr. Nancy’s Conversations with Smart, Amazing Women. It thrills her to connect with so many wise, accomplished women, learn about their work and help to share their messages to help other women. With a master’s degree in communications and 30+ years’ experience in writing and production for different kinds of media and purposes, she feels grateful to use her talent for such “worthy work” and to contribute to this amazing team. The WomenConnect4Good team lives the mission and works together in mutual support to deliver the most positive outcome possible. “Dream team” is not a placating term; it’s the way we would all like to work, and we feel fortunate to experience it.
