Melanie is an award-winning writer and teacher. She has received multiple grants for her creative work, from the Maryland State Arts Council, Arts & Humanities Council of Montgomery County, National Endowment for the Arts, and more. She is also a skilled grant writer from her “previous life” as a nonprofit development officer, where she secured and managed large programs and grant budgets for a variety of arts, education, and social service organizations.
