Now, for the informal, background and other fun parts of her story:

Melonie is from a small town in Southwest Louisiana, a part of the state with a mixture of French, Cajun and Creole heritage. Ever since she was a little girl, she wanted to be a writer. She grew up writing songs and poetry about the world around her. She also wanted to be a teacher, nurse, astronaut, artist and archaeologist and go dig up cool stuff in Egypt. So many to chose from, what is a girl to do? 101_1843 (3)She began her career as a teacher after graduating college. Throughout her career, no matter what role she had, she always managed to use her creative gifts of art, writing and training to help others. Looking back, she became all the things she wanted to be – an astronaut (help others soar to new heights), nurse (help people heal), archaeologist (help others dig up buried dreams in their past), artist/writer (help people express themselves), and teacher/trainer/coach (help others achieve goals and organize their life).4301-Curt and Mel (2)Melonie currently lives in the Tampa Bay area with her wonderful husband and greatest fan. She enjoys vintage shopping, mixed-media art and paper crafts, bullet and creativejournaling, writing, singing, reading, watching movies, meeting new people, volunteering, dancing and walking with her hubby by the ocean or nature trails. Her faith is the foundation and secret weapon to her purpose driven life.
