Hi I'm Melanie

I grew up in England and New Zealand. I am a wife, mother of two and a preschool teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a bachelor's degree in Biology and love to spend time outdoors. I like to hike and climb and do anything adventurous. I am a mother of two beautiful girls and teach preschool. Being a mother is by far my most challenging adventure.

Why I am a Mormon

I am third generation Mormon on both sides of my family. I live faithfully to honor my ancestors that sacrificed so that I could have the gift I know as the gospel of Jesus Christ. The gospel provides me peace, instruction, guidance and a place to serve and learn more about myself whilst serving others. When I serve and live my life centered around the teachings of the Mormon church I am happy. I want my daughters to feel this same happiness. I love that wherever I am in the world I can walk through the doors of any chapel and it feels like home.

How I live my faith

I have been an activity leader for the 8-9 year old girls for the past three years and just got the calling to serve with our young women aged 16-17. I am excited to serve and teach these Young Ladies and be a part of this time in their lives. I still remember my leaders from when I was this age and hope I can make a similar impact on their lives.
