A Charleston native, Melissa relocated to the Charlotte area after graduating from Winthrop University. She has a passion for kids and initially worked in Education before transitioning to Administration in Banking. She left the working world to become a full time Mom to Camden (18) and Mavis (16). She currently works as the Office Manager at Carolina Sports Clinic.
Melissa is an active member of SouthPark Church where she serves on several committees, including the Leadership Team. Her passion for Haiti was sparked in 2017, when SouthPark Church partnered with Ballantyne Rotary and Water Mission International. Together, they worked to bring clean water to communities in Bayonnais. Melissa and her fiancé, Hal, traveled to Haiti in the Spring of 2018 and fell in love with Actionnel’s vision and the people. They returned to Bayonnais in 2019 and are already making plans to go back in 2020.
In her free time Melissa loves to run, garden, and work in her garage. She can also be frequently found at Ardrey Kell High School, lending a hand with her kids’ activities.
