Melissa C. Hanna

Los Angeles

At 17, while being a contestant on a reality tv show to win scholarship money for college, I was asked to share my life goal. I said, "My goal in life is to have a positive impact on the lives of others." It's still true to this day. My greatest joy comes from creating experiences that allow others to feel connected and empowered.

I am an advocate and volunteer for Stoked Mentoring and I previously founded Audist Entertainment, Little Spoon, and Body Language, a live production about women's health and wellbeing. I've consulted on strategy and operations for LA and NYC startups in education, health, and other areas with a social focus. And, I previously served as the Assistant Director of Outreach for the Eugene Lang Entrepreneurship Center at Columbia Business School.

After pursuing my JD/MBA at Southwestern Law School and the Drucker School of Management, I began working with my mom Linda Hanna, founder of My Nursing Coach. Together we launched Mahmee, a hub for ongoing, integrated maternal healthcare for new moms and their infants.
