MELISSA HAYES | Board Member
Melissa grew up in northeast Ohio to a family of artists. She had her first set of professional colored pencils at the age of 5 and began sweeping the teddy bear coloring contest circuit at 6 years old. Although art has always been a love and a hobby, Melissa's career passion was in the environmental field. She graduated with a BA in Environmental Studies from Hiram College in Ohio and promptly set off out West post-graduation. She worked as an environmental educator in New Mexico and as a park ranger in Colorado before making her way to Montana to attend graduate & law school.
