Originally from Newfoundland, Melanie has spent the past 5 years in Calgary and joined the TOPP KIDS family in May 2019.
With a passion for inclusion and social change, Melanie completed a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology at Mount Royal University. She was drawn to TOPP KIDS for the same core values of not only inclusion, but mentorship, community, and growth.
Melanie loves incorporating art and sensory-based activities to expand, grow, and challenge creative minds.
She hopes to eventually pursue an Education degree, specializing in Inclusive Education, focusing on art and expressive therapies with youth.
Melanie also loves coffee, weekend hikes in the mountains, and her 6 year old Orange Tabby cat, Bella.
