Mellisa has deep connections to the Canning region, starting her career as a teacher at Armadale Primary School, where she was known as Ms Angwin, before moving to teach in Williams. Passionate about training and young people, Mellisa then became the Managing Director of the regional TAFE College in the Goldfields-Esperance region. Mellisa moved back to Canning in 2012 to serve as the CEO of the Peel Development Commission and Chair of the Peel Workforce Development Alliance. During that time, Mellisa was proud to deliver key projects in the Peel region, including securing funding for major infrastructure including the Mandurah traffic bridge and the Nambeelup industrial park, which will drive more than 33,000 jobs over the next 20 years.
