Melissa has served on a variety of nonprofit boards and has volunteered her time to great causes, including Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation, Children's Hospital Colorado, Abolish Slavery Coalition and Animals & People Together, to name a few. Now she lends her experience, compassion and humanitarian spirit to the board of Walk With Me and the families they serve.
