Missy Durant


Missy believes in people. And she’s happily committed her entire life to that cause.

For more than 15 years, Missy got paid to believe in people as a successful human resources professional for very large U.S. businesses. Then she threw her life into a tailspin, on purpose, as she left her job and began a search for something deeper. Today, one of the things that matters most to her is inspiring others to let gratitude for the things that matter most – people – set the course for their lives.

Active in the community, Missy has served several non-profit organizations, Project Success (a non-profit serving Minneapolis and St. Paul youth), the Human Rights Campaign (America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality) and People with AIDS Coalition Jacksonville (PWACJ) board of directors.

Missy earned her master’s in organizational management from the University of Phoenix and bachelor’s of science from the University of Northern Florida.

Missy, her partner Sam, and their two endearing children – Thing 1 and Thing Thing 1 – call Minneapolis their home.
