She continued her education in Early Childhood Development and taught at the Montessori School in Sheboygan. Melanie was an amazing mother and spiritual person. She was a member of Unity Church where she taught Sunday School and sang in the choir. She enjoyed the outdoors, hiking with her children and loved yoga, especially at sunrise on the beach. She also found interests in astrology, meditation and enjoyed volunteering at Springdale Farm in Plymouth.
