Melinda joined the Lifeline team in March of 2018. She serves on the Hong Kong/Taiwan team and is also a domestic specialist! She lives in Auburn, Alabama but is originally from Mobile, Alabama. Melinda attended the University of South Alabama for her undergrad in social work. After that, she headed The University of Alabama for her MSW. She and her husband, Sawyer, got married in December of 2016. In her free time, Melinda enjoys traveling, hiking with her husband and puppy, organizing / planning, and cooking. Her favorite foods are Italian, French, and farm to table. Her favorite place to visit (besides Disney World of course) is Paris. Her three simple joys are new Bible studies / books, anything Disney, and hosting gatherings that bring friends together. Melinda’s favorite thing about working at Lifeline is the people because of the overflow of kindness and joy among staff and leadership. She considers it a privilege to be a part of such an amazing team of people all pursuing the same mission.
