Missy Hitz loves sharing the joy of entrepreneurship with others. She is active in her community and serves on the City of Erie Mayor's Small Business Council, Great Lakes Institute of Technology Massage Therapy Program School Board, is a member of both the Erie Regional Chamber & Growth Partnership and the Erie Downtown Partnership and their Downtown Distance with Dignity Taskforce.


Missy received her B.S. in Kinesiology from Penn State University. She taught at two schools and was a massage program director responsible for writing and implementing curriculum for business and anatomy classes.


As the founder of Monacella Massage & Kinesiology, LLC she expanded her business from sole proprietor, to hire independent contractors and evolved into hiring employees. Her goal is to help other entrepreneurs learn from her mistakes and grow the entrepreneurship community. Although we may be in business for ourselves, we should never feel alone.


Missy and her husband, Scott, love listening to music, relaxing in their backyard and spending time sailing on Lake Erie (Scott owns "Your Sailing Adventure.")
