About Us

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.

Letters from Melissa

Happy “Galentine’s Day” to all of you extraordinary women!

I have to say that this date, February 14th, has always been a strange one for me.

As a wee child, there was the pressure of which special Valentine card I was going going to choose for my crush.I would agonize over that silly box of Valentines for my class choosing and re-choosing just the right one.

As a young adult, I imbued it with so much importance as it is the day after the anniversary of my father’s death. As a consequence, I viewed Valentine’s Day as the day that would somehow make up for the feelings of grief and loss from the day before. That’s an awful lot of pressure to put on a partner, or poor even little Cupid. Now here I am at this place in my life. I’ve moved through a lot of the grief so for a few years, Valentine’s Day became a true and traditional way to celebrate the love in my life, or the love of my life, my sweet husband, Tim…

We believe in

(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.

What They Say

Read how our products have impacted the lives of our community members.


I just wanted to say thank you SO much for creating this forum for women like me (modern along with being mature) who are learning to accept ourselves as we are and finally feeling at peace with our bodies, our accomplishments, and where we are headed next.


Thank you for the wonderful outreach you have provided to me and many other women who needed this in our lives. And Nicole, when you get a moment, could you please thank Melissa for me? It’s amazing that she graced my childhood and is still influencing me now as I’m older. Keep up the good work! You are touching more lives than you realize!


Just note expressing my gratitude for all you do for women our age! You are so beautiful inside and out! Thank you for being your true self.


I closed my business. We packed our things and moved to Texas. I owned property there on a lake. We cleared the land and built our home with our own hands. We have not looked back! It has been the greatest experience of my life. And most importantly…I found out what I was made of.


Thank you, for the session, for the community, for the follow-up...for everything! Everyone was incredibly inviting and down to earth. Sharing this experience with Ms. Gilbert was like meeting up with an old friend. I was moved by her openness and others’ sharings ...


It is important to know that so many others feel the same way as you, that we can lean on each other, and that we can empower ourselves and each other to turn negative emotions into positive thoughts by simply looking at them from a different perspective. I do hope that we will be able to do this again soon!! It was very healing and insightful.
