Melody grew-up on Kaua’i where she graduated from Kula High School and then attended the University of Hawaii at Hilo to study Administration of Justice. Her intention was to follow in her sister-in-law’s footsteps and pursue a career in law enforcement. However, when she moved to California, she was offered a role as a Human Resource Manager with Target Stores where she found her true career passion. Melody then moved back to Hawaii to be near her family and friends and worked at NAPA Auto Parts where she delivered human resource support to all seven of the stores on Maui.
As an HR Consultant in Vantaggio HR’s Maui office, Melody is responsible for providing her clients with both on- and off-site human resource support in the areas of recruitment, on-boarding, employee benefits administration, employee relations, and much more. Her favorite part of human resources is that each day brings a different challenge and gives her the opportunity to provide solutions for her clients and their employees.
Melody has a Bachelor’s degree in Administration of Justice from the University of Hawaii at Hilo and a Master’s degree in Human Resources Development from Villanova University.
On the weekends you can find Melody and her husband around the Kihei area camping and teaching their daughter how to boogey board.
