Melanie Ross Mills, a Texas girl, intended to be a teacher. Receiving a B.S. in teaching from the University of Texas at Austin, she planned to enter the classroom, but fate stepped in. Marriage, a son, and becoming a homemaker changed her original plans. In 2002, Melanie began working as a mentor. Her sincere and unique approach to helping others quickly gained her recognition as the "go-to for insight” person. To her surprise and appreciation, she became a sought-after voice by community and business leaders, churches, and non-profit organizations. Accepting her calling, Mills augmented her education by becoming certified in Temperament Counseling.
