About Melody

Melody grew up in Texas, Wisconsin, and Colorado, but Chicago is her favorite American city.

Melody has a strong connection to evangelicalism because of growing up in local churches and participating in the home education movement. There are also three Trinity graduates in her family and before coming to TEDS, she worked for Focus on the Family and The Navigators.

In her studies at Trinity, Melody is focusing on nineteenth-century America, specifically the anti-slavery movement and Protestant-Catholic relations. She treasures the chance to study female religious writers of all eras, particularly Julian of Norwich, Angelina Grimke, and Dorothy Sayers. Her passion is connecting people to the larger story of the Church, in the classroom and in the local church.

Her husband Marcus is a scientist, and they share an affection for Charles Dickens, local bookstores, the history of hymns, and adventurous cooking and eating. Ask her about the professor who gives the best fiction recommendations and where to get first-rate calzones in the Trinity area.
