About Melissa

Melissa has over 20 years experience in sales, marketing, and management. She grew up in Oregon where she received her degree in Business Administration with a minor in Behavioral Science from Oregon State University. She relocated to Boise, Idaho, 17 years ago where she currently lives with her wonderful husband and two amazing children. She helps families every day but searching for your own family is difficult. Pulling the trigger and saying, “It’s time” can be hard. As well, you know just how unique your parents are. For example, her father was a forester so putting him in a city apartment was hard to imagine. To make matters worse, her parents had really different care needs. But she found something that works. She found a community with a view of mature trees and a pond full of wild ducks and geese. They provide the care for her mother while having other alert residents for her dad to talk to. Making the move was actually easier than she thought it would be. She's not saying it was easy, just that everything fell into place. If she hadn’t made the move when she did, Melissa doesn't know how they would be getting through things right now. Her dad just had knee surgery at 92. Can you imagine?

A Note From Melissa

"Helping others has always been a passion of mine. As an Advisor, I can truly make a difference in the lives of seniors. My personal experience gives me the ability to be empathetic to what others are going through. I enjoy educating families about new options in senior communities and helping to find what's right for them. I love hearing the relief in their voices when I've been able to help."

Reviews and Testimonials

"Melissa has been really great! She is so on top of it, she stays in touch and sends me information, she calls me and follows up with me. She has put my mind to rest, and we talk. She has recently gone through a similar situation, so she really understands the dynamics of what we are going through. She is still helping me, now that we moved. She has really gone above and beyond to give me options, and I am so glad I found her. And thank Joan Lunden for me too, because that's who led me to you."
