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.

CEO & PRESIDENT
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.
I’m Brian! Husband to Melissa theJava Momma Roaster. I also work full time for Geisinger Health System as a Computer Analyst. I’ve been there for 30 years. The thing I love most is all the adventures Melissa and I have with her brainstorms.
CBDO - Cheif Business Development Officer
Hi! I am Brie and I am the CBDO of Java Momma as well as Creative Director and Brand Developer. Also, I am the companion to the Doctor (aka Melissa) I am lucky enough that I get to work remotely from home here in Sweet Home Alabama. Graphics are my baby and I love how much fun and sass we get to pour into them. The thing I love the most about Java Momma is not just the product, but the community and heart. We are a tribe and we have a good vibe. When Melissa says we are a relationship built company, she was not kidding. I have met some amazing people that I now get to call friends. I have 3 kiddos, a teenager, a tweenager and a toddler! My boys’ middle names are David and Tennant respectively. I bet you know my other obsession. Allons-y!

The opportunity to join the Java Momma “family” came kinda unexpectedly. People want a great product and have it delivered in a timely manner, Java Momma hit that nail right on the head and it’s Jamaican me crazy that I was given the opportunity to grow with an amazing company such as Java Momma.
Hey Y’all! My name is Grace and I do customer support for Java Momma. I was previously a part of the Production Crew of Java Momma. I currently live in Jacksonville, NC with my husband who is a Corporal in the Marine Corps. It has been a wonderful experience watching Java Momma grow from Melissa’s kitchen to now our new and larger location! I have been working for Melissa since 2014/15. I have been through her most of her LuLaRoe years and since the start of Java Momma. I was one of her first workers when Melissa and Uncle Brian started Java Momma. My favorite Java Momma product would be the various Hot Chocolates with Chocolate Truffle being my favorite Hot Cocoa. I think the most ironic part of being with this business is that I do not care for coffee but I love smelling the various coffee flavors!
Armed with an arsenal of responsibly grown options of coffee, tea and, cocoa, we are fueling the opportunity to percolate your own dreams. Java Momma is brewing a strong community one sip at a time.
