Mel had seen and felt the impact of addiction occur in her family and became passionate about helping others struggling with substance use disorder in any way possible. This inspired her to work in the field of recovery. She has an AA in Social Science and Sociology and loves coming to work every day to connect with others. Mel finds every day at Alo House Recovery Centers a new experience and enjoys being a part of our family like atmosphere. One of her favorite things to do is drive. It allows her to clear her mind, enjoy music, see new sights and often have deep and meaningful conversations with others. Mel finds the staff at Alo incredibly unique and feels honored to be on the team!
