In her “previous life,” as she likes to say, Melissa used her B.A. in broadcast communication from The University of Toledo to enjoy a career in television news and commercial production. She found herself training staff at the TV station and felt a call to education. Melissa joined UT in 2007 as a program manager for University College; she also became a graduate student earning a master’s degree and a graduate certificate in communication. Melissa served as an academic adviser before moving to her current role for UT Online as an educational technologist — which she considers the perfect union of her communication and education careers.

Melissa enjoys costume parties, flea markets, vintage home design, and just about anything with wheels, from cars to tractors to rollerblades. She is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in educational media and looks forward to – someday – reading for fun again.
