Melanie Lee grew up on a lake in Bigfork, MT, located in the Northwest corner of Montana. A passionate Montana native, she spent much of her childhood hiking, climbing, and camping in Glacier National Park. To many people’s confusion, Melanie decided to move to the flattest place she could find on the map, and moved to Moorhead, MN to attend Concordia College. She graduated in 2012 with a degree in Sociology and Religion.

Just a couple months after graduation, Melanie married her college sweetheart. Her husband, Josh, is a teacher at Park Christian in Moorhead, and is also the head boys basketball coach for the Falcons. They welcomed their spunky little girl, Ella Rae, in January of 2014. A family of redheads, their life is full of personality, adventure, and a touch of sass.

Before coming to Hatch Realty, Melanie spent time as an Admissions Representative at Concordia College, a piano teacher, a barista, and a stay at home mom. Melanie joined the Hatch team in October of 2015.

Melanie loves to spend her free time making memories with her husband and daughter, and their dear friends and family. She also enjoys singing at church, teaching piano, reading, and being active.

Above all, Melanie loves God and loves people. As she puts it, “I love people and building deep, meaningful relationships. I believe we have all been placed on this earth for a specific purpose, and my mission is to run after my calling with everything that is within me, in order positively impact the world one person at a time.”
