||When Caroline saw Jessica Seinfeld on the Today show talking about her New York
City-based charity Baby Buggy and its Million Diaper Drive, she was struck by a
comment Jessica made–that low-income moms have to choose between buying diapers
and buying food on a daily basis–and mentioned it to Melissa. Both women knew how
hard it was to be a new mom and the thought of the added stress of trying to provide
basic necessities such as food and diapers broke their hearts. In 2005, LA
Diaper Drive was born.
Prior to becoming a mom, Melissa worked as a communications strategist for the
White House, non-profits, and in politics. She received her B.A. in Psychology from
the University of Pennsylvania.
In addition to her philanthropic experience spanning twenty years, Caroline worked
as a casting director for many of television's most popular reality-based shows.
She received a Master of Public Policy from the University of Southern California,
an International MBA from Richmond College in London, and a B.A. in History/Art History from UCLA.
In 2008, Melissa moved to San Diego and Caroline has assumed full responsibility of
LA Diaper Drive, managing the all-volunteer charity.
