Melissa Strawn, Executive Assistant
Melissa is the Executive Assistant here at SafeBeat. She is a mother of four with a background in childhood education and caregiving. She has an incredible passion for each individual child. She is dedicated to see children develop and learn new skills. She has enjoyed every aspect of watching a child flourish and grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Working for SafeBeat will be one more area where she can help a child grow up to become the adult they were meant to be, so they too can have their impact on this world.
As a teenager, Melissa experienced difficulties with fast heart rates. Due to living a very active lifestyle, this was often over looked, and it was never caught in a doctor’s office. At the age of 25, she underwent an electrophysiology study and catheter ablation. After the procedure, her physician told her husband that she was “lucky” that her heart had not “exploded.”
“I feel very blessed that even though my condition wasn’t caught early on, that God saw fit to spare me and allow my procedure to be successful. I didn’t know then that heart screenings were even available. So, when I learned of SafeBeat I knew I had to be a part of this mission. How could I pass up the opportunity to possibly help save a child from the pain and fear I had often endured. This is why I am passionate about letting others know that there are preventative measures you can take to spare your child from sudden cardiac arrest.”
