Melissa has been working with families across Montana for most of her professional career. Prior to joining Montana Pediatrics, Melissa worked in several early childhood professional positions. In 2007, she became a Family Support Specialist and found a passion for working with parents who had children with developmental delays and disabilities. It was during this time that she fell wildly in love with supporting parents and their children. Over time, this love led to her pursuit of a Master’s degree in Social Work and now helping parents bring more fun and ease into their parenting is her passion. When Melissa is not working she can be found cooking, dancing, or connecting with her family and friends.
