Mel resides in Horseheads although Schuyler County feels more like home on most days. She started her career as a teacher and came to CCESC for what she thought would be a short stay, and instead found that Extension work provides strong opportunities for community education and training. Mel has found her home in working within 4-H Youth Development and is passionate about creating spaces that support diversity, equity and inclusion where all youth can thrive.
