Melanie was born in Louisiana, moved to Texas in the 3rd grade, then moved to London, England and lived there for five years before returning to Texas where she has lived ever since. She graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing and to satisfy her curiosity about all things human behavior, she also minored in psychology.
Melanie joined SHM Architects as their Marketing Coordinator in May 2019. Although her career and educational background are marketing/business focused, the time she spent living in England and traveling throughout Europe inspired an interest in architecture and design that has been amplified by her experience working at SHM.
When she isn’t working, Melanie enjoys going on road trips, getting outside with her dog, and giving back to the community. She is on the board of directors for yCPD, a young professionals organization that supports CPD (Community Partners of Dallas) and ever other Sunday she can be found serving in the Children’s Ministry at Watermark Community Church.
