Director of Operations

M.A. in Communications from Georgia State University
B.F.A. in Communications from Valdosta State University

Melissa Faulkner is an artist & avid supporter of alternative education in the Atlanta Area. She has studied Communication, Filmmaking, and Digital Imaging and worked in a variety of fields including news production, vintage & antiques sales, education, and the arts. She brings her unique expertise and eclectic style to LEAD as our Director of Operations

Melissa's responsibilities include overseeing the organization -- everything from developing LEAD's course offerings and onboarding new instructors to coordinating LEAD's membership. She also moonlights as our website manager and Jill of all Trades. She's a mystery wrapped in a riddle, not like Skittles. She loves dogs, sculpting, hanging with her Girl Scouts, and can often be found at the potter's wheel, hiking, reading, digging in the thrift store, or planting native plants.
