Working Mama: Melissa Leraye Legions

In celebration of Mother’s Day, all week I will celebrate some of the Working Mama’s in my life who are making it HAPPEN.

Today’s feature is the extraordinary, super talented Melissa Leraye Legions.


Melissa is the mom of one of Leah’s BFF’s Kayla Joie, she is a dancer, choreographer, entrepreneur and all around bundle of unprecedented talent.

Here’s a little bit from her site…

Melissa Leraye Legions was born in Brooklyn, New York. She is the only girl and the oldest child to Leroy and Jeryl Legions. She is also the proud single mom to the smart and talented Kayla Joie, “Joy”. In April 2015, Melissa was interviewed by Author Omar Bryan on the subject of “Motherhood, Balancing Ministry and Home”, her “two babies”. This interview gave her the opportunity to speak to and encourage other single mothers at The Brooklyn Tabernacle. 

Melissa currently works as an educational assistant, “paraprofessional”, for the Department of Education but is also pursuing a couple of entrepreneur opportunities. She is the artistic director of the New Life Cathedral Dance & Movement Ministry at New Life Cathedral under the leadership of Bishop Robert J. Rochford. 

Please stop by her site and learn more! One of her many awesome endeavors includes Movement With Mel – a combination of cardiovascular exercises and choreography designed to help you have fun while dancing your way to getting and staying healthy. Whether you feel like exercising is boring or you feel that you can’t dance at all, these cardio and choreography routines are for you. In a non-judgmental atmosphere, these routines cater to men, women, boys and girls of any age, and size. Every fitness and dance level gets moving to stay healthy. Take it from me, the class is fun and gets your blood pumping!

Happy Mother’s Day Melissa, you rock!!!
