Finance & hr manager
Melissa hails from The Windy City and headed out west after obtaining her Master’s in Public Service Management at DePaul University. While she misses the urban mountains and pizza, she’s happy to live in an area on the forefront of innovation and ingenuity related to our environment and building resilient communities. After spending 6 years in the Finance Industry she is thrilled to be working in the nonprofit sector and for a community oriented organization.
When not working at the ReBuilding Center, Melissa spends her summers breaking up pavement with Depave, winters planting with Friends of Trees and year-round teaching self-defense with WomenStrength. You can also find her out enjoying the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, or enjoying stage performances at Profile Theatre where she serves as a Board Member.
