Melissa joined the Becker Ritter team in September of 2017. She
was a graduate of East Troy High School in 2014 who then studied abroad through
a program at NSCAD University in Nova Scotia, Canada.
In her role as Office
Manager, Melissa finds assisting the funeral directors in supporting and caring
for families to be tremendously fulfilling and rewarding.
Melissa is often the first person at Becker Ritter to speak
with families. Her calm, empathetic, and assuring personality is
comforting, and families feel she is treating them as if she would her own
family. Melissa plans to become an apprentice funeral director in 2020 and
hopes this will allow her to make more of an impact in the lives of the grieving
and broken hearted.
In her free time, Melissa greatly enjoys kayaking and going
on walks in nice weather. She also enjoys all things creative and crafty, and
is a proud keeper of a 5-year-old leopard tortoise named Moby.
