Speakers & Entertainment
Charlee Tchividjian, Keynote Speaker
Charlee Tchividjian founded Every Mother’s Advocate (ĒMA) in her college dorm room in 2011. Her passion for this work was fueled after spending a semester in South Africa and engaging in inner-city work in her college town - being made so painfully aware of the systemic challenges and barriers vulnerable mothers experience without support in place. For the first 5 years, the ministry operated locally out of community centers and Churches mentoring inner-city teenage mothers. In 2016, Charlee and her husband became licensed foster parents where she learned of the systemic difficulties mothers face when involved with the child welfare system. Three years later, ĒMA propelled into an organizational rebirth and ĒMA continued to serve vulnerable mothers in crisis, but with a refined mission and vision to eradicate the preventable causes of family separation by advocating for and empowering mothers in crisis.
Jen Tucker, Emcee
Jen Tucker pens films, commercials, grocery lists, and lunchbox love notes. Her footing in the world of marketing, advertising, publishing, and videography includes roles as creative director, editorial director, content strategist, and producer. Known for her work locally and globally in film, commercials, print ads, and content creation, Jen has collaborated on projects in Europe, Hollywood, San Francisco, New York, and Washington DC, yet her favorite work will always be with the women—and Floyd—of Bravely Women’s Health.

Jen has written seven books, collaborated on and ghostwritten several others, and her memoir, The Day I Wore My Panties Inside Out, was a 2011 Goodreads Choice Awards semifinalist in the humor category. You can find her long-running Chick Lit Cheerleader column at Chick Lit Central, and read her musings on Survival for Blondes, Humor Outcasts, Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop, Survival Mom, Apraxia Mom, as well as a handful of Google reviews from carpet cleaners to her favorite Thai food.

A Purdue University graduate twice over, Jen is thrilled to have recently returned to Greater Lafayette after four years living in the Washington DC area. In her spare time, Jen is learning how to use a chainsaw, trying not to kill houseplants, and loves doing absolutely nothing.
Melissa McAtee, Speaker
Melissa left her career in banking in 2010 to follow her calling as the CEO of Bravely Women's Health.  It was through her own unintended pregnancy that God radically changed Melissa’s path in life and led her to the pro-life movement.

Under her leadership, Bravely has become a leader among pregnancy resource centers and within the pro-life movement – through innovative approaches which save and transform tens of thousands of lives.

Melissa is also the board president for the Indiana Association of Pregnancy Centers.  She is a mother of five and happily married to her husband, Kyle.  In her spare time, she likes to read, spend time with her family, and be the number one cheerleader for her kids at their activities.
Bryan and Summer Watowich, Music
Bryan and Summer recently got married and moved to Lafayette, IN from the west coast and are so grateful to be a part of what God is doing in Indiana. Bryan is currently working as an interim youth pastor and Summer is on staff at Bravely as a client advocate. They are excited to partner with God as He moves in the lives of families in the Lafayette area. Both Bryan and Summer have a heart for ministry, both inside and outside of the local church. With a background in worship ministry, they will be offering musical entertainment throughout the Bravely Ball this year. In their free time, Bryan and Summer like going bowling, going on walks, playing board games, and worshiping God through music.
We believe that all people, from conception to natural death are made in the image and likeness of God and are created with
value and purpose.
