We are Military Spouse & Veteran-Owned

About Us

Our Founder

Melissa Green founded Southern, Sweet & Sassy with the intent to help create an inclusive environment for all Military Families.

As a Military Spouse, Melissa has relocated to various areas where family was not accessible. Being the new spouse with young children in a new environment became difficult. In the Navy, "sponsors" are provided for the service member, but not for their family. During transition, information and help is hard to come by.

Because of this experience, Melissa is in process of creating an environment that will help with during transition. Sponsors for not only the service member, but also the family who can help guide them during this tough time.

Melissa is a Military Spouse of 17 years, and a U.S. Navy Veteran. Her husband, Landis, is U.S. Navy Retired. Together, they have four children, two dogs, and three cats. Melissa believes in connecting, networking, and learning other's stories. "You never know who you will connect with or who you could potentially help."
