Executive Director

Melchert is a non-profit advocate who is passionate, innovative, and results-oriented. She is a leader with a demonstrated history of working in the non-profit industry. She has more than 20 years’ experience in fundraising, marketing, communications, special events, and Board of Directors management.

Melchert graduated from Iowa State University and after some time in retail marketing moved to Texas, in 1997. A recent newcomer to Cooke County from the DFW Metroplex, she is a proud mother of her adult son Parker and a recent new Nana to her only Grandson, Easton. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, exploring new places, taking her 4-legged fur baby, Cowboy, to doggie parks, and volunteering.  In her spare time, you will find her whipping up a new recipe as she loves to cook, gardening, shooting targets, watching movies, and or reading a good book.

Melchert states “I am very excited to use my over 20 plus years of non-profit experience including previous United Way to join the Cooke County United Way. I look forward to helping continue the wonderful work that is being done in our community.”
