Meet Our Dynamic Founders

Queen Mel Slim & King Leon X

Hence "MeLeon"

Mel Slim: Born under the steadfast sign of Taurus in 1989, Mel Slim hails from the vibrant city of Philadelphia. With an entrepreneurial spirit that ignited in 2009 when she started her first fashion business, Mel has since become a recognized brand expert. But her talents extend far beyond the business realm. As a singer, humanitarian, and devoted home birth mother of two, Mel embodies the power of creativity, compassion, and the ability to nurture a dozen successful ventures.

Leon X: A true revolutionary with a worldly perspective, ironically, also a 1989 Taurus, Leon X has traversed the globe and honed his skills as a sales and marketing expert since his entrepreneurial journey began in 1998 when he moved to the United States from Bahrain. With a fervent dedication to youth development and self-mastery, Leon's passion is palpable. As a published author and renowned life strategist known as "Dr. Abundance," he empowers individuals to unlock their potential. As a proud home birth father of two, Leon cherishes the values of family and growth.

Since 2017, Mel Slim and Leon X have not only been partners in life but also in business. Their partnership flourished in 2018 when they embarked on a remarkable journey together, running the most impactful underground arts venue in the United States, The AMF House, located in uptown Philadelphia. Over the span of five years, they powered over 1,200 events, revitalized communities, and assisted countless businesses in scaling their operations. All the while, they joyfully started a new family.

In 2022, the couple made a life-changing decision to relocate to Puerto Rico, a move that has proven to be the best for their relationship and young family. Founding Casa Meleón, a healing center and relaxation station, marks the next step in their extraordinary journey. With their passion, experience, and unwavering dedication, Mel and Leon are committed to creating a sanctuary that embodies their vision of holistic well-being, tranquility, and transformative experiences.

The History and Inspiration Behind Casa Meleón: 

Casa Meleón is more than just a retreat center—it is the culmination of a remarkable journey that began with Leon and Mel. Their shared vision, deep connection, and desire to create a sanctuary where individuals could find solace and transformation set the foundation for Casa Meleón. 

Leon and Mel's path intertwines with their history as a couple and their collective experiences as entrepreneurs, artists, and advocates for community development. Their journey began in 2017 when they became partners in life, igniting a spark that would soon propel them into a profound creative collaboration. 

For five impactful years, Leon and Mel ran The AMF House, an underground arts venue in uptown Philadelphia. It was here that they harnessed their collective talents and passion to create a space that breathed life into the local artistic community. Through over 1,200 events, they fostered creativity, supported artists, and assisted entire communities in experiencing the transformative power of art and culture. 

However, their path took an unexpected turn in 2022 when they made the decision to relocate to Puerto Rico. Inspired by the island's natural beauty, vibrant culture, and commitment to sustainability, Leon and Mel sought a fresh start for their relationship and young family. It was during this pivotal moment that the seeds of Casa Meleón were planted. 

Casa Meleón represents their shared vision, values, and dedication to holistic well-being. By combining their names, Leon and Mel, they symbolize the harmonious union of their individual strengths and aspirations. Casa Meleón is the culmination of their diverse experiences, creative genius, and unwavering commitment to making a positive impact.

With Leon's sales and marketing prowess, world travels, and passion for youth development, combined with Mel's brand expertise, artistic talents, and humanitarian spirit, they create a dynamic force that breathes life into every aspect of Casa Meleón. 

Having both of their names on Casa Meleón signifies the essence of their partnership and their joint commitment to creating a transformative retreat experience. It reflects the fusion of their unique perspectives, love for each other, and their shared desire to provide a haven where guests can reconnect with nature, rejuvenate their spirits, and embark on a journey of self-discovery.
