About Java Momma

The idea for Java Momma came about in September 2017. Melissa and Brian Shoop came up with the basic concept for Java Momma at their kitchen table one Friday night. The focus would be on relationships from the very start. A company built from the ground up to serve the needs of fellow direct sellers, with the focus on customer relationships. Java Momma cares about the community, providing leadership to our baristas, maintaining your trust, and product integrity.

Melissa Shoop

CEO & PRESIDENT

I am the Founder and President of Java Momma.  Before all this awesomeness, I was a major “kitnapper” in many direct sales companies, a consultant in a few that I ran as a business, and still a loyal shopper of many.  I am married to Brian and between us, we have eight kids, four grandkids and three dogs and two cats. We live in Danville PA with three of our kids and three of our grandkids! Life is such an adventure – so live every moment to it’s fullest. I am a firm believer in being positive every chance you get.

COO

Hi! I’m Dana and I am thrilled to be a part of such an amazing company, Java Momma. I’ve known Melissa for years and love the culture and company that she has built with Java Momma. I’ve been involved in Direct Sales for over six years as a consultant and leader – but I enjoy working on the back-end business processes the most. My favorite part of Direct Sales is watching consultants grow into new skills, leaders and business owners. Prior to DS, I fulfilled a 20-year sales career as a rep, manager, and executive leader mostly in the pharmaceutical arena. I have a love for strategy, business processes, marketing, and analytics. Newer to a coffee-obsession, but long-time tea lover! It’s important for me to have work-life balance, so I love working remotely for Java Momma. I live in MD with my husband, son and daughter.
