Melissa Tafoya is an activist and advocate for people with Parkinson’s to provide hope and improve quality of life. She is a pint-sized powerhouse with a mountain of creativity, experience, and purpose and has been training and coaching special populations for nearly a decade. Growing up she felt different; she was incredibly shy and terrified of the world. In elementary school, she found her voice on the playground and became known as the Mini Mike Tyson of tetherball. Melissa grew to be a voice for others who were too shy or misunderstood. Little did she know it would define her destiny to start Rock Steady Boxing Sacramento, while allowed her to put her love of hitting things and defending others together. This worldwide affiliate program is evidenced-based, non-contact boxing designed to improve quality of life for people with Parkinson’s. She recently founded her very own center of hope, Hope In Your Corner, a safe space designed specifically for her fight family and private clients to thrive as well as for support groups to meet. In addition, she currently serves on the Latino outreach committee through Parkinson’s Association of Northern California (PANC).
