Melanie Larson

After graduating college with a journalism degree, Melanie Larson spent 15 years building a career as a developmental book editor, working with a variety of publishers and authors. But after her first child enrolled in preschool at Keystone in 2013, she found a new passion, and later spent most of her free time volunteering at the school.

While this is her first year to be officially on staff, Melanie has, for several years, managed Keystone's social media presence, co-chaired fundraising events, coordinated marketing efforts, and been active with our parent group, PAK. Now, as our front office person, Melanie utilizes many of the same skills she used in running her editing business: clear communication, multi-tasking, organization, attention to detail, and running a schedule. Her favorite thing about being at Keystone is getting to spend time with her two kids during the day, but she is also thrilled to get to be a part of a place that she loves so much.
