Director of Hospitality

Melanie has been putting on great shows since an early age. After attending the York County School of the Arts, she received a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Administration from James Madison University.


During college, she worked as the Lead House Manager at The Forbes Center for the Performing Arts, with double duty at Capital Ale House working as their Front of House Manager and Hospitality Coordinator.


With an eternal love for food and beverage, she quickly realized the uncanny overlap between theatrical performances and the events world. In turn, she joined the team at the Country Club of Virginia as their Bridal attendant and eventually graduated to James River Clubhouse Supervisor.


Today, Melanie directs the cast at Dover Hall and will ensure that your next event is worthy of a Tony. When she is not working, you will find her enjoying live music, drinking a good craft beer, traveling, and watching football.
