Melissa Marie Lopez

Melissa Marie Lopez was born and raised in the Mesilla Valley (San Ysidro/Las
Cruces, NM) to self-employed parents, living next to her grandparents on
Lopez Chile Farm. After pursing formal education and career in government,
Melissa found herself in a position of burn out, poor health, and a longing to
pursue something different. Initially the founder of Reclaim Wellness from
2016-2020, Melissa sought to bring wellness to the community from Soil to
Soul. During this time, she was sought after for her work in Transpersonal
Hypnotherapy (specializing in trauma and emotional release), Reiki, and as a
Full Spectrum Doula. Pivoting during the pandemic, Melissa was selected as
the Executive Director of the New Mexico Doula Association and began
working in state-level advocacy. Recently, Melissa returned to the family farm
with the intention of creating a safe place for full spectrum reproductive
healthcare for all people and a gathering place for community.



Angelique Osburn

Hello, my name is Angelique Osburn. Everyone calls me Angie. I am from Las Cruces, NM. First and
foremost I am a wife and mother of 2 intelligent, beautiful daughters. I was raised in Garfield, NM on a
farm and went to a small high-school in Hatch. I have studied at NMSU and received an Bachelor of
Science degree in Family Consumer Science. I have worked with children since 1991. I have been with
Early Intervention for the past 14 years as a Developmental Specialist and Infant massage therapist. I
took a 3 year break due to health concerns. My goal is to pass the CLC exam and offer services as a
home visitor in early intervention to help further support and educate fellow minority women.
