Melissa received her bachelor’s in 2008 from Indiana-Purdue University Fort Wayne and her master’s in 2010 from Governors State University. She has been working with Milestone since 2011 and enjoys being able to work in both the clinic (which she also manages) and Indiana First Steps. She enjoys the diverse caseload to help children with various abilities develop their communication skills. Melissa shares that it is often very hard work but the reward in helping children and their families reach a goal makes it all worth it!
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family (including 2 dogs), staying active via running and barre classes, fishing, and watching sports. Melissa is a big Cubs fan and even has a tattoo of their logo!
