Melanie was a member of Ohio’s Workers' Compensation Specialty Board, the Ohio State Bar Association, the Workers' Compensation Law Committee, the Dayton Bar Association, and the Southwest Ohio Self-Insured Association.
Melanie’s significant accomplishments as an attorney were equaled by the impact she made on the lives of others as a member of the Dayton legal community, as a mother, and as a friend.
