Three Fast Facts
1. I attended a 2-week yoga retreat in Greece.
2. I love to cook and entertain.  I have regular cooking face-time dates with my sisters so we can enjoy dinner “together”.
3. I’m known in my family as the ultimate game rule follower and enforcer… I’m slightly competitive.

More about Melissa
I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and spent most of my adult life in Cleveland, OH where I worked as an auditor for a regional accounting firm and later transitioned to the Finance Team at an Independent K-12 school.  I love being in nature and always wanted to live in the PNW. I finally took the leap in 2017 and haven’t looked back! I try to hike every weekend and be by water or mountains as often as I can.  Along with my cat, Simba, my 3 sisters and 5 nieces and nephews are my world and get all of my attention in my free time. 

What I do at CBI
I work with the Congregation’s finances and budget and oversee all accounting functions, including helping with member accounts and donations to CBI.
