Welcome to Fraser Valley Lifestyle Magazine!
We are a collective of storytellers, documenting the faces and places that make the Fraser Valley home. We value community, collaboration, and authenticity; and most of all, we value you. Our goal is to bring you the most inspiring and engaging content we can find, from right here in the Valley.
Join us as we share stories, struggles, and successes from White Rock to Chilliwack and everywhere in between.
Melissa is an entrepreneur, partner, mother, and writer. When tasked with bringing the dream of Fraser Valley Lifestyle Magazine to life, she jumped at the opportunity to build a platform for authentic, community-based storytelling. Melissa manages the FVLM website, brand, and content- but her favourite part is overseeing our phenomenal team of contributors!
When she’s not working on FVLM, Melissa is busy running Foundation Creative Co, a boutique agency offering branding, web design, and content marketing. Outside of work she’s usually found clutching an iced coffee while reading Pete the Cat to her toddler over, and over….and over again.
Christa is a proud mom, wife, and entrepreneur. She believes in living life to the fullest and enjoying the journey. She’s jumped headfirst into the world of online publishing and brings years of business experience and impeccable taste to the FVLM leadership team. As one half of a father-daughter real estate team based here in the Valley, Christa is passionate about her community and everyone in it. Christa lives in Langley with her husband and new baby girl; outside of business, she’s an accomplished equestrian and a lover of new adventures.
Christa’s father Mike brings a little testosterone to the leadership team, along with an excellent taste in wine! Mike has been serving clients the Fraser Valley for the last 25 years and is passionate about helping people make a home in this beautiful community.
