Melanson joined the Louisiana SPCA as part of the communications team in 2018 and became the communications director in 2021. The ability to partner a passion for a cause that resonates with her personally and a love for all things marketing and communications is a rare find, but it’s one that she has found at the Louisiana SPCA. She has a 4-year-old beagle mix named Millie, whose name was inspired the musical “Thoroughly Modern Millie.”
