Melissa has a BA in Music from Central WA University, and almost completed her BA in Accounting from Central as well. Almost all of her working experience has been in the area of accounting, while her music has been her “other life”; singing in many different venues, including singing in and leading worship teams and choirs at churches.  She has lived in the NW nearly all her life, preferring to remain near her parents and five brothers and sisters, and all their families.  She met her best friend, Scott, online in 2007, and married him  in 2009, becoming the step-mother to his six children.   When she is not keeping the numbers balanced for the church and Heritage Christian Academy, you will find her working on knitting or crocheting projects for her other business, Knifty Knits, directing the Alpha Singers choir, or at home with her husband and 3 dogs.
