Melissa R.

Marketing and Communications Supervisor
Traverse City, MI, USA


I have a passion for protecting and serving our most vulnerable populations. My career has focused on serving children that have experienced abuse and/or neglect, including runaway and homeless youth, foster youth, and sexually victimized youth. I have worked for Child and Family Services since 1998. My first position was as a foster care case manager. Throughout the years, I have worked in many different departments at CFS, learning more about each unique system and population. I now use this knowledge and experience to increase awareness of the issues surrounding our youth, and assist in developing programming through fundraising, marketing, and establishing sustainability to better serve their needs.
