Melissa Cullen

A recent Austinite, Melissa was born and raised in *whispers* Orange County, California. She is married to her college sweetheart, Wes, and they have two children, Samuel (2020) and Charlotte (2022). The move from the beach to hill country has afforded Melissa the opportunity to be a SAHM while also going back to school to receive a dual masters in Divinity and Nonprofit Management and Administration. When not studying or changing copious amounts of diapers, Melissa loves to explore all the family friendly activities that Austin has to offer. She lives in Dripping Springs and is a lover of Jesus, a good coffee shop, reading, wine, any and all sugary carbs, and making memories with family and friends.
