Chief Financial Officer
A lifelong Greensboro resident, Melanie is a graduate of UNC-Greensboro with an Accounting degree. She worked for a major accounting firm straight out of college until leaving to become part of an Investment Management/Financial Planning company.
Melanie comes to us from Rossabi Black Slaughter where she was previously the paralegal in the Estates and Trusts department. She now serves as our company CFO and is responsible for all client billing. Melanie personally strives to provide our clients with quick and exceptional service because she (correctly) believes that extraordinary client service is our cornerstone.
Melanie enjoys working on Habitat for Humanity houses, where she feels her efforts can contribute to a better life for those families who need a helping hand. She is passionate about charities that provide for the needs of less fortunate or abused children and for the elderly who are too often forgotten. She provides a happy home to four animals who found their way to her doorstep in various ways. Melanie loves football (specifically, the Carolina Panthers), and likes being active. She loves people and will be happy to help you in any way that she can.
