Melody’s professional career started at the Gaslight Dinner Theatre and then went on to film, television and commercial, voice over & industrial work into the 1980’s. After her twins were born she took up the counseling profession and was licensed in 1990. It was then she discovered her model for understanding human relationships, and authored, two books. To give better talks on her books Melody took an improv class, leading to her first Theatrical role since college at the Greater Lewisville Community Theatre.
