A Little About Melissa’s Role

Melissa joined Headway in September 2016 and has worked in human services fields since 2011.  She has previous experience working with children and young adolescents with a variety of special needs and mental health issues, but specializes in working with children on the autism spectrum.  She loves being an advocate for those who are unable to do so on their own by helping coordinate community resources for families.  “I hope to build trust through honesty, attentiveness, and unending advocacy for my clients,” she says.  “I want to enable my clients to overcome obstacles and live positive and fulfilling lives.”

Some of Melissa’s favorite things to do outside of work include cooking, hiking, yoga, traveling, creating pottery, painting, reading, live music, and refinishing old furniture.
