Interim Development Director
If you have been to one of our many events over the past two years, chances are you’ve met Melissa Anthony. She joined the KCME team in 2011 as Development Assistant, and after quality training from the previous Director she has moved into the position of KCME Interim Development Director.
Melissa hails from Groom, Texas, home of the Giant Cross, and the Leaning Water Tower, where she was a standout citizen among its 587 residents. She moved to Colorado Springs in 2002 and now calls the Springs ‘home’. Much of Melissa’s professional background is in graphic design, but after a period of self-reflection she realized her passion is in serving her fellow humankind. A desire to begin a new career path in the non-profit sector inspired Melissa to graduate from Pikes Peak Community College and continue on to the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs where she will graduate with her Bachelor of Arts in Women’s and Ethnic Studies in the fall of 2013. This desire to enter the non-profit community eventually brought Melissa to classical music and KCME. Now she serves the listeners of Classical 88.7 KCME and we are proud to include her in the KCME family of staff, volunteers, and listeners. Although classical music is not her first passion, Melissa understands the importance of the continued existence and appreciation of classical music and the arts in every community, and she is committed to helping ensure a place for the arts in the Pikes Peak region.
Outside of KCME, Melissa enjoys volunteering for other local non-profits, anything to do with the gorgeous mountains in the area, reading, and spending time with her honey, Andy, their dog and four cats…yes, four cats is correct.
