Melody comes to us from a variety of backgrounds that include an upbringing in a household of music and dance and a family business in the hospitality industry. Her parents wrote and performed music as well as taught ballroom dance for extra income, giving Melody and her five siblings the gift of dancing.
While growing up, her family ran a small town tavern/restaurant/dance hall in Northern Wisconsin. This led her to working for the trade association for the Wisconsin hospitalitiy industry for over a decade after she graduated from high school. After marrying her husband Steve and having two children, her life took a path in another direction working from home raising her two children and running an in-home daycare until both of her children started school. She then found herself interested in the dental field and utilized her business background in dental office management for 16 years.
After surviving cancer twice, she decided it was time to ‘face the music’ and realized that she needed to work in a stress-free environment that not only brought her ‘back to her roots’ but also brought her joy on a daily basis. She loves that her job allows her to listen to dance music all day long while looking out on the dance floor and seeing people of all ages smiling, happy and active.
Melody’s hobbies are camping, gardening, training her beautiful German Shepherd, Helix, singing in her daughter’s band, and of course….dancing! You will find her on the dance floor at any opportunity.
