Melissa K. Norris is a 5th generation homesteader and lives with her husband and two kids in their own little house in the big woods in the foothills of the North Cascade Mountains.
Transformed by her experiences with a personal and family member health scare, Melissa decided to take charge of her and her family's health through living a more natural lifestyle.
She's chronicled her experiences and lessons-learned in several books and how-to video courses that today help hundreds of thousands of people each month build resilience and self-reliance by creating a homemade and homegrown kitchen, home, garden and barnyard.
Her mission and passion to empower individuals and families living a natural, homesteading lifestyle is evident in the training and resources she offers through her website, popular Pioneering Today Podcast, the Pioneering Today Academy and her books.
Melissa is also a co-founder of the Modern Homesteading Conference as well as owner of Norris Farmstead - a 40-acre homestead farm-stay experience for vacationers.
