Who: Melinda Perez
Sector: Local Business
Melinda Perez is a Bronx, NY native having spent most of her adulthood commuting between Manhattan and New Jersey. She grew up rebelling against both parents and leadership, fought through addictions and wild behavior learning all the lessons no parent would want their child to experience. Because she has survived so much, she is able to speak firsthand how God can use every, even the dark ones, to show His love for us. She now resides in Lawrenceville with her husband and family. Melinda gave up her career as a designer to help women and teens redeem their mind and bodies back to Christ through Ignyte Global Body movement, a fitness program that offers an alternative to Yoga.
