Melissa TomberlinOffice Administrator
Melissa Tomberlin joined the team of VOICES in January of 2018 after settling back in her hometown of Montgomery, Alabama. She has always had a passion for children and their well-being which has led her to roles as a Pre-school Teacher and Nanny at different times in her life. These positions helped her understand the benefits of proper early childhood education, as well as other issues in child development. Her supporting role at VOICES is a joyful opportunity each day to expound on her calling as a child advocate. It means that much more knowing she is impacting the lives of children in her beloved home state of Alabama.
Since her graduation from Auburn University, Melissa has had many exciting opportunities that have taken her to different states including Arizona, Utah and South Carolina. Through these multi-cultural experiences, she has developed a wide range of business knowledge through working in industries including logistics and supply chain, healthcare, manufacturing, food processing, governmental affairs, and non-profit.
Melissa has learned from her various positions that with drive, teamwork, and a desire to make a difference, anything is possible. She has honed her skills and abilities through positions as an Administrator, Customer Service Representative, Patient Counselor, Business Support Associate, Sales Assistant and most recently as a Customs Brokerage Coordinator. In these roles, she has benefited from working in large international corporate companies such as Kuehne + Nagel Inc. and smaller privately-owned businesses such as Plastic Surgery Associates of Montgomery. Her niche and vocational awareness of the non-profit circuit began as she worked for Alabama Society of CPAs.
In Melissa’s current position as Office Administrator, she uses her positive work ethic, attention to detail, organization, professionalism and multi-tasking capabilities to manage various office duties, general business, scheduling, and other administrative tasks. She acts as a communications role to the Board of Directors and staff helping with grant writing, fundraising, and any other advocacy needs.
She lives in the quaint community of Pike Road where she attends Century Church and is nearby her parents, sisters and their families, which include her treasured nieces and nephews. She also enjoys the company of her dear “Sheltie” dog, Lily.
