Member Spotlight: Melissa Morrow

I was born in Houston, Texas. I have lived in and loved Austin for 27 years.

Family Life:
I have been happily married to Greg Morrow for 27 years, and we have twin 17 year old daughters, Izzie and Valerie, who attend school at St. Stephen’s, and a son, Elliot, who is 9 years old at Eanes Elementary.

Work Life:
I am the Executive Director of the West Austin Youth Association, also known as WAYA. We provide youth sports opportunities including soccer, volleyball, basketball, flag football, lacrosse, baseball, gymnastics, as well as preschool. It is a super fun place to work and play.

The biggest lesson I’ve learned through my iGnite experience…
On the days I workout with iGnite, I have more energy, patience and fun!

The best advice I’ve been given…
When I was expecting twins, a friend who had twins told me that every time someone offers to help you, always say yes. I think that is great advice even if you don’t have newborn twins.

In my free time…
I love to play volleyball and soccer.

My guilty pleasure…
Watching action movies at 2:00am.
