About Us

“Growing older has given me the confidence and permission to discover my authentic self.  I have become more empowered by embracing change and my reaction to it and now understand the importance of slowing down.  

That includes being more mindful and appreciative of the little things, along with my connections to other people. 

This is rooted. This is confident. This is a woman who has earned her opinions.”

– Melissa, Back to the Prairie  

Modern Prairie is a brand centered around the modern, mature women and their needs, focusing on empowering them to regain their confidence through aging.

As we age it can feel like a struggle to be seen and heard which can result in us feeling isolated or that we don’t belong. At Modern Prairie, we want to change that by creating a space where women can share their stories, ask questions and learn from each other.

Our goal is to facilitate a journey of (re)discovering what’s possible –

We aim to amplify, celebrate, and connect women’s voices – those who have embraced change and who are making changes in the world.

As we embark on this adventure together, we promise to focus on relevant topics, activities and products from women, Modern Mavens, who have come from different backgrounds and life experiences – and have embraced their aging journeys. We will share their stories through the content on our site, virtual events and social media channels to give you an opportunity to engage directly.

You will find our narrative authentic, honest and inclusive –

We accept you as you are – and we see you.

We believe that “it’s never too late to find your natural self . . . brave change, open your heart, and evolve.”

Join Melissa and the Modern Prairie community as we choose to (re)discover what inspires us –

(Re) Discovering

From the grandest editorial feature to the surprise benefits of a butter bell, everything presented in our universe has a story that explains why we believe it’s worth treasuring.We curate products, experiences and content that have their own unique heritage and history – our goal is to help people (re)discover the products that enrich and enhance their lives and give visibility to those individuals who create them.

Embracing the Possibility of Change

Our goal is to empower you to shift your narrative around the uncertainty of change - especially as we age. The topics and conversations that we address are aimed at helping you navigate and gain power in your aging. Bringing our maven’s stories to life gives them a voice and raises awareness so that others seeking direction, can find their inspiration, passion and purpose.

Celebrating Women

We believe in celebrating Modern Mavens – unique and inspiring women, who’ve found their voices and rediscovered their passions, wherever they may be. We carefully hand-select the individuals we collaborate with, focusing on those that share our values of purpose, and togetherness. We appreciate and understand that there are women who are making a difference every day and we want to hear their stories.
