Melissa Fox Lehman is the CEO and co-founder of Pogo Rides. For the last 15 years she’s been helping Fortune 50 companies and nonprofits develop strategy and roll-out global programs. She loves developing actionable strategy and seeing those strategies brought to life. When she became a mom she knew she wanted to focus her energies on building something to make life easier for busy parents. This was the genesis for Pogo. Her team is committed to helping families find safe and flexible transportation for their school-age children. As a mother of two she understands the logistical challenges faced by busy parents of busy kids and believes in the power of communities to help each other live fuller and less stressful lives. Safety, community and ease are the core tenants of Pogo. Melissa earned her Bachelor of Arts with honors in Business Administration and Interdisciplinary Fine Arts from the University of Washington. In her spare time she does ceramics, hikes, and spends time with her supportive husband and two young sons.
