Melanie Young is a motivational muse and master of reinvention. After a long career working running her respected culinary marketing and events agency, working with global wine and food clients and serving as the Founding Director of The James Beard Foundation Awards ( a.k.a. “the culinary Oscars”), she took a Leap of Faith in 2011 into a new venture- author, radio host and certified health coach. The “tipping point” was a breast cancer diagnosis in 2009. Young decided to prioritize her health over business- something she had not previously done- and become an advocate for self-care and positive reinvention in the face of a setback. Young is author of “Getting Things Off My Chest: A Survivor’s Guide to Staying Fearless & Fabulous in the Face of Breast Cancer” and “Fearless, Fabulous You! Lessons on Living Life on Your Terms.” She hosts two weekly national radio shows, both podcast permanently on iHeart, Spotify and other platforms. Fearless Fabulous You (the Women 4 Women Network) is a lifestyle show for women. The Connected Table Live, co-hosted with husband, David Ransom features engaging conversations with global thought leaders in wine, spirits, food and hospitality. She blogs at www.melanieyoung.com and www.theconnectedtable.com, Her articles have been published in Huffington Post Health, Greatist, Livestrong, Wine4Food, Wine Enthusiast and many breast cancer media outlets.
