As a mom to two boys with varying Autism disorders, Gena Mann knows as much as anyone what being brave and resilient and kind is all about. While life may be a bit less predictable, and things like family dinners out or trips might be a bit less frequent, she and her husband – and their two younger daughters have come to really embrace the unique joy these boys bring to their world. Gena has spent much of her free time devoted to providing awareness and support for other parents of children with special needs, most recently with her launch of Wolf + Friends to connect people in a specific area with other parents who “get it.” While Gena admits her family often gets those funny stares, they focus as much as possible on enjoying every day and uncovering the passions each of her four incredible children has.
Meet A Mom
Mom of 6 (YES, 6!) kids, Melissa is a therapist focused on Sensory Process Disorder and the therapeutic treatments availability for kids. After founding the Sensory Kids clinic in Stamford years ago, she just opened a clinic in Wilton (which she helped design!) in partnership with The Southfield Center, offering a multi-disciplinary treatment center with access to specialists of all types. In her spare time, Melissa loves family hikes at Devil’s Den, admits to being quite shy deep down, and claims her new Dyson hairdryer was worth the splurge! In another life she’d be a full-time mom or ski bum, and places tremendous value on screen-free time for her and her kids to enjoy this fleeting time in life! Thank you Melissa for all that you do for this community!
