Melody Thomas Scott is best known for her Emmy Award–nominated role as Nikki Newman on the daytime drama The Young and the Restless, and this year she celebrates 40 years in the role. As host of Feel Good Day, she will moderate the panel discussion with New York Times bestselling authors Robyn Carr, Brenda Jackson and Susan Mallery, share opening and closing remarks, and lead the Energizer sessions, which are designed as short bursts of activity to help build a strong sense of community and excitement.

“We’re so thrilled to have Melody Thomas Scott as the host of Feel Good Day.  For years, she’s played a beloved character in many women’s lives, from generation to generation—much like our stories, which have been shared by mothers, grandmothers, daughters and friends for decades,” says Merjane Schoueri, the Feel Good project director. “We know Melody will add fun and excitement to the day, and will help women be transported in this new immersive experience we’re launching.”

Serving as local Feel Good Day Ambassador is First Lady of San Antonio Erika Prosper Nirenberg, wife of Mayor Ron Nirenberg.

Prosper Nirenberg will help present The OutStander Awards, which shine a spotlight on outstanding San Antonians who champion the message at the heart of the Feel Good mission every day. “I believe that San Antonio residents deserve to have their passion, commitment and outstanding achievements be recognized not just in the city, but on a national and international scale,” Prosper Nirenberg said.  Prosper Nirenberg is a former chair of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and in that role she helped establish the Latina Leadership Institute (LLI) to help women learn more about how to be engaged civically and politically.
