Melinda Barnhardt, originally a Midwest girl, grew up in South Dakota, and subsequently spent ten years living and working in Minneapolis, MN. Never having been a fan of excessive cold/snow, she moved to Southern Oregon, somewhat on a whim, where she has now lived for 4 years. Melinda has worked a number of administrative and customer service jobs throughout her years, but has always had a passion for social services. She is soon to finish a Bachelor’s degree in Human Services at Southern Oregon University, and is honored to be able to use her existing skills and experience to support Maslow’s vision and mission as Executive Assistant.
In her free time, Melinda enjoys traveling near and far, exploring the beauty of Southern Oregon, consuming delicious and interesting foods, music (both listening to and playing), movies, appreciating/creating art, and spending quality time with friends.
