A graduate of Regis University’s Mile High MFA program, Melanie chose an emphasis in poetry and non-fiction, though she enjoys writing across genres. Most recently, she put her skills to work for her tribe. As a production writer for the Chickasaw Nation, Melanie worked on various projects for social media, virtual presentations, and internal communications, but is most proud of the work she did on a video for a National Parks Grant and a collection of mini features for the Chickasaw Hall of Fame. Melanie is an Assistant Editor for the literary and art journal Inverted Syntax, has worked with Indie filmmakers for the 48-hour Film Project, and works as both a writer and a teacher for Cherry Blossom Yoga.

Having spent time in Tulsa teaching both yoga and creative writing through the Women In Recovery Program, part of Tulsa’s Family & Children’s Services, Melanie is happy to join the Lighthouse faculty and serve the Writing to Be Free community.
