Melissa is originally from Pretty Prairie, KS. She fell in love with Sterling College while attending from 2004-2007. After graduating with a B.A in psychology, she spent four years working with adults with severe mental illness at a mental health center. She joined the SC staff in July 2011 as an administrative assistant in the Student Life Office. Melissa’s passion is that every student would come to know Christ in a personal and transformational way. When she’s not at work, Melissa enjoys cooking, traveling to Pennsylvania to see her extremely cute niece Evy, growing flowers, going on mission trips, and spending time with her friends and family.
“I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14
