She is also involved in Early Childhood Education services as Part C ASL Family Trainer focused on IFSP and Parent Infant Toddler playgroup. She majored in social work at Gallaudet University in 1982. She had her first two part-time contracts with Maine DHHS and Child Development Services, then became Early Interventionist for 13 years with SKI-Hi Institute certificates at MECDHH. Due to state cuts, and limited job opportunities, Melinda also worked as a children's case manager for Community Counseling Center, now known as Maine Behavioral Health. That was when Child Development Services was moved to under the Department of Education. Melinda returned to MECDHH as a contracted Deaf Mentor in the Parent Infant Toddler program.
