A former Montessori student, I graduated high school in Bigfork, MT, then instantly jumped on the opportunity to live in and travel much of western Europe, Mexico and the Caribbean.  Ten years later, home, family, establishing roots called me back to the United States where I married my husband, Kelly, and we began raising a family of our own.   Our home is busy with the energy of our four young boys, who keep us on our toes, and a Siberian Husky.  My hobbies include traveling, mountain biking, football season (Go Broncos!), and playing with my children.

Ms. Melissa is currently enrolled in an Early Childhood Montessori Teacher training and certification program with plans to graduate in the winter of 2018.
