As a child, Melanie was always curious about how spaces fit together inside a building and what their relationship was to each other. That inspiration led her to architecture school and then to K2M. ā€œI love coming to work every day and knowing that I am among friends–friends in five different states,ā€ she says. Melanie loves to nurture relationships and that aligns quality perfectly with her favorite core value. ā€œInside and outside of K2M, team-building and nurturing relationships are one of the most important things we do.ā€ If given the opportunity to meet anyone, she would choose her favorite author, Barbara Kingsolver, who changed Melanie’s life in middle school.
