Photo Melanie JohnsonI am a mass communications student living and learning in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my husband of over 30 years and our five children.

A sweet labradoodle named Belle is also part of the family.

My current personal and educational goals include:

  1. Embracing a healthy Whole30 lifestyle
  2. Homeschooling my two sons through high school
  3. Earning a bachelor’s degree


After graduation, I hope to produce work that will help people connect with services that will enrich their lives.

I am passionate about adoption and would also like to use my multimedia storytelling skills to promote and encourage adoption. My three youngest children joined our family through state foster care and I have seen firsthand the wonderful blessing adoption is and what a difference it can make when a child grows up in a safe, secure, and loving forever home!
