Melanie has worked in the human services field since 2010 and joined Headway in April, 2014. She received her BSW and MSW from Augsburg College, and has experience working with a variety of demographics and ages ranging from early childhood to age 21.  Providing outpatient therapy services within the alternative high school in Richfield (SECA), she strives to bridge the services between home, school and community to help her clients transform in every area of their lives.  "Being in a unique setting such as I am, working in a school, I get a chance to look into the lives of my clients that not all therapist get to see," she says.  "I am able to greet my clients right away in the morning and find out if they have had a difficult weekend, morning or are struggling through their day.  It allows me to have flexibility and meet with the child when they need it to help them process through difficult things in the moment."

Outside of work, Melanie is very active and enjoys playing sports, working out and playing volleyball.  She loves to travel, try new restaurants, cook, go to comedy clubs and listen to live music.  She also enjoys hanging out with her two dogs, Nina and Dexter.
