Melissa Gaddie is a lifelong resident of Louisville, KY. She shares her home with husband David, children Elliott and Emerson, dog Moses, cat Gary, and a bunch of fish and snails Elliott brought home from a 2nd grade science unit. The daughter of a retired minister and a retired teacher, Melissa grew up instilled with a sense of service that led her to volunteer stints in public radio fundraising drives, as a board member for (now defunct) local music organization LMIA, non-profit arts organization management and board member (Art Sanctuary and The Alley Theater), and most recently as former PTA officer at her children’s school - along with being a Cub Scout and Girl Scout leader for both her kiddos. When not volunteering, Melissa loves to read, knit, travel, and craft. She is excited for this next chapter in service by joining the Snacks in Sacks board, and hopes to help continue the good work of the organization.
