As the director of the Cancer Network of Hope, Melissa knows well the difference our community makes for our families in times of crisis. She joined us in 1991 with her husband, Brad. We came to know of her commitment to service through her work as secretary at Wesley United Methodist Church. As she and Brad started and grew their family, Melissa maintain her service work outside of the home, becoming an active member of the American Cancer Society Victory Board, chairing the 2001 Cancer Ball. Her service followed her children through our schools, first as president of Oglethorpe Point Elementary’s PTSA, then PTSA president at Glynn Middle School. In addition to her years of service in leadership roles in our community, Melissa’s credentials also include a Bachelor of Arts from Auburn University.
