Melissa was born and raised in Maine, right in the Newport area where Northwoods Ranch is located. Melissa comes from a large family; she is the oldest of six children, and a mother to five teenagers who do not think she is cool, even though she insists she is!
Before Melissa began working for Northwoods, she was a Hair Stylist for 9 years. She loved her job, but after her husband Devin joined Northwoods, she
started “helping out” where she could, morphing into the needed roles. Eventually, it led to be her full-time job where she wears many hats, from (but not limited to) the unexciting administrative paperwork, meeting and talking with families for new admissions (the best part of her role at Northwoods), to the ever-demanding task of keeping Devin under her command.
Outside of Northwoods, Melissa enjoys spending time with her family, whether it be road trips, hiking, camping, participating in an occasional mud race, exercising or just hanging around being lazy!
