In October of 2003, Melissa lost her husband, Mark Wandall, in a tragic crash which was caused by the negligence of a red-light runner. At the time of the crash, Melissa and Mark were 9 months pregnant and had just celebrated their first wedding anniversary. The couple had enthusiasm and passion for their marriage and for their new family. Melissa was devastated the evening she lost her one true love.
In addition to the Foundation and Coalition, M3 Motivational Concepts was created to honor Melissa’s husband and their daughter, Madisyn Grace. Melissa and her daughter travel internationally delivering encouraging, motivational speeches to insurance companies and their agents, community groups, students, and law enforcement. Personally, Melissa exudes the message she delivers in all of her speeches, that tragedy can be transformed into something beautiful and positive. Melissa’s motto, “Marked by Grace with an authentic approach to educate, encourage and empower” creates speeches which are captivating, hopeful and confident.
Melissa’s hope is for Madisyn Grace to inherit values that evoke compassion, strength and the desire to “give back” throughout her life. Melissa believes that their work will create a lasting legacy for her life-time love, Mark. If you would like Melissa to be a speaker at your next event, please reach her via the information below.
