Who we are atThe Little Gym of Waco
My name is Melissa McNeil. I'm married to a great guy named Matt and have a 5 year old, crazy boy named Connor. Let me start off by saying that I’m a 20 year old girl trapped in a 50 year old woman’s body! I love being silly, playful and just having fun! For quite some time now, I have wanted to own my own business but just never quite knew what I wanted to do.
For 26 years, I have worked in the medical field. The past 10 years have been in a Pediatric ICU. While there are many success stories and MIRACLES that happen within the walls of a hospital every day, there are also the tragic stories that no one wants to be a part of. Three Summers ago, I was witness to SEVEN tragedies within EIGHT shifts at which point... I had HAD ENOUGH! I asked God to guide me into a different career path … I wanted to do something FUN with CHILDREN. YOUR CHILDREN!! And here I am!
For years, I struggled with fertility issues but at the age of 45, through that same Grace of God, my own MIRACLE child was born. When Connor was 18 months old, we began attending The Little Gym classes and he LOVED it. I watched him grow physically and socially with his teachers and other students. He would swing from the parallel bars and do his flips with pride. And, he was always looking over his shoulder to see if I was watching. I could see the confidence that he gained from week to week. He couldn’t wait to go to the gym, learn something new and see the friends that he had made!
So…in June of 2018, my NEW dream will come true. I will own my OWN The Little Gym and I can’t wait to meet your happy, healthy children and help develop their confidence, social skills, and tumbling abilities.
