Comings and Goings

Melinda Olson has joined the graduate admissions counseling team to work as an admissions counselor for the Doctor of Education program. She arrives from the Hillsboro School District, where she was a secondary resource specialist for the past two years, teaching college and career prep classes for high school students. Melinda lived in Texas prior to that, working as a special education teacher at Hutto Middle School in Hutto, Texas (2015-16), serving as a fitness instructor at a YMCA in Austin, Texas (2013-14), and working as a special education coordinator (2011-13) and teacher (2010-11) at Harmony Charter School in Austin. She holds a master of education degree with a specialization in multicultural special education from the University of Texas (2006) and a bachelor’s degree in speech communications and public relations from Miami University (2005). Melinda lives in Hillsboro with her husband Russell, their two children, Xavier and Stella, and Shadow the dog. The family attends Sonrise Church in Hillsboro and enjoys exploring the outdoors and discovering good restaurants. Melinda’s hobbies include reading, cooking, Latin dancing, and as of very recently, knitting.
