In addition, persevering hardships and refusing to fall into the victim syndrome is by far Meli’s most inspiring characteristic.

In 2008, Meli was the 3rd Hispanic Woman in Nevada to be selected to attend the Premier National Hispana Leadership Institute (NHLI), a one year long leadership program that included executive training in Washington DC, Harvard University, John F. Kennedy School of Government, and the Center of Creative Leadership.
Before joining Project 150 in 2013, Meli’s non-profit experience includes various organizations who advocate in areas of hunger relief, rights for higher education, youth leadership, fair access to health care, and strongly pursue community empowerment and unity.
Meli and her two college age daughters enjoy traveling, spa days, as well as share mutual passion to serve our community.
