Woman First: Melinated Moms' Jaye Wilson Is Creating Unity Within the Community
With our country in such a state of social and political unrest, unity within our communities is more important than ever. Jatesha Madden-Wilson; or professionally known as Jaye Wilson, a mompreneur, motivational public speaker, social activist, maternal advocate, and self-sufficiency coach. Jaye saw the importance of how community engagement created better physical, emotional and mental health outcomes for its people.
Through her own personal experience of transitioning from being a married mother to a divorced single mother, Jaye sought out the need to find a community of support for herself. She has created a women's membership organization called Melinated Moms and it has quickly become recognized for creating safe spaces for women to discuss cultural competency for women's health in communities of color. Melinated Moms also empowers, motivates, and cultivates the community through health and fitness meetups and mommy & me bonding events. If we work together within our communities, we can address important issues—such as the social impact of women of color through the intersections of motherhood, sisterhood, and womanhood!
