Melissa has always had a special place in her heart for seniors. "I remember thinking when I was a child how lucky I was because my parents were older. My father was fifty five years old when I was born, so my parents were a bit older than most of my peers. It was a blessing to have the privilege of wonderful parents who taught me so much and set an incredible example for me. And, I hope, I turned out to be a blessing for them, as I had the honor of caring for them in the last years of their lives," she shares.
Her involvement in the field of senior issues gives her a unique perspective on the challenges we all face when dealing with aging parents who need care. She's volunteered for well over a decade with the Meals on Wheels organization in her city, directed their major fundraiser for multiple years, and currently serves on their Board of Directors.
Melissa was chosen as one of the top "20 Under 40" business leaders in central South Carolina by The State Newspaper in 2009.
