Melissa Telzer Milne-Pott

FOUNDER AND CEO

As a two-time cancer survivor, at ages 13 and 46, Melissa knows the challenging journey that awaits anyone who hears the words, "you have cancer." From diagnosis through treatment and recovery, there are emotional, logistical, and health demands that can be exhausting and overwhelming. It is a difficult road, and no one should have to travel it alone. Melissa decided to leverage her over 20 years of experience in management consulting (PwC, Accenture, KPMG) and technology (Pearson, Salesforce, and TimeWarnerCable) to change the journey of those experiencing a life changing event. Her family, friends and community made a crucial difference in her journey fighting cancer. Her hope and passion is for InKind Space to make that kind of loving support possible for everyone. Melissa lives in Brooklyn with her husband and twin daughters.
