Sunset Gardens

Melanie Powell

Impressions / Receptionist

I was born in the small town of St. Maries in Northern Idaho, which is a small logging community. Upon graduation I went to Southern Idaho to attend college to study psychology. A few years later I obtained a cosmetology license in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and worked in several salons in a few states. After getting married I spent 17 years in Logan Utah which I loved and still call home. I had all five of my children in Logan.

I moved to the Tri-Cities a few years after my divorce and have been here for 16 years. I obtained my Associates degree in Library Communication Services from Spokane Falls Community College and a Certificate of Office Technology from Columbia Basin College. I love to read, specifically British mysteries, with a good cup of decaf tea. I always have a book down loaded.

I love my cats, and enjoy traveling, the outdoors, and most of all, spending time with my kids who are all grown up. My two boys live with me still and I am enjoying the bond we have as a result.

I have 30 years of working with the public along with 5 years as a Clinical Administrative Assistant. I enjoy working in a field that is centered on helping people.
Working in a funeral home is a whole new world for me and am finding it very interesting and rewarding. I am looking forward to many years with Einan’s.
