Mel originally joined Family Promise as an intern with the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Social Work, where she is earning her Master of Social Work. Mel also attended the University’s Sturm College of Law, where she received her Master of Legal Studies degree.
Since her internship has ended, Mel is now a part-time Community Support Assistant focused on events and fundraising, helping families feel comforted and supported while in our program, developing deeper relationships with our volunteers and community, and overseeing shelter operations. Aside from Family Promise, Mel interns at a local nonprofit providing support to victims of violent crimes. In her free time, Mel loves being outside, playing with her cats and listening to podcasts!
