YouTube Star

Melissa Hunter is better known in the YouTube world as Mommy, the co-host of Mommy and Gracie Show, which she shares with her 13 year old daughter, Gracie. Although starting a YouTube channel was originally Gracie’s idea, Melissa, a retired finance and operations executive, quickly saw the business potential in the medium. A natural born networker and gifted public speaker, she used her skills to build up a strong reputation both in the toy industry and the YouTube community. In 2014 she launched Family Video Network, a boutique MCN dedicated solely to kid-friendly and family-friendly content. Through Family Video Network she is able to share her experience as a creator, businesswoman and parent to help other family-friendly creators succeed on YouTube and beyond.

Melissa believes that success isn’t about leaning in or being a tiger, it’s about having fun doing what you love, and finding a way to love what you do. She encourages both kids and adults to find the joy in life, and in the everyday things that they do. Her strong advocacy for parents to get more involved with their children through play has led her to a position on the Toy Insider’s Parent Advisory Board, and in 2015, she and Gracie were awarded the Social Influencer of the Year award by Women in Toys.

As Gracie continues to grow up, Mommy and Gracie Show continues to grow and change with her. Now at 700,000 subscribers, the show remains at its core about a mother and daughter having fun together in front of a camera. It is about the relationship, and it is about family. They never know what the future holds for them, but they do know that they will be doing something fun together online!
