Before coming to the UCSRB in 2013, Melody maintained a private practice as an environmental facilitator and mediator. She worked on a variety of issues, such as watershed planning, underground petroleum contaminations, public workshops on numerous contentious Draft Environmental Impact Statements, and marine fisheries impacts from power plant operations. Melody obtained a Bachelor of Science in natural resource sciences from Ohio State University, and a Master of Science in natural resource sciences from Washington State University with a research focus on collaboration and multiparty dispute resolution. Her home is nestled at the base of the mountains in Leavenworth, where she skis and hikes with her husband and two rambunctious children.
