Melissa Koran Arceneaux came to Atlanta, Georgia in 1995 from Florida where she was a graduate of the University of Florida. Melissa moved to Atlanta to work for a series of record labels and spent several exciting years working in the music industry before transitioning to higher education in 2003. Melissa works full-time at Georgia Tech and is an older mother (at age 47!) to 3 ½ year old Abigail and 10 year old Ariel, who was diagnosed with autism at age 2. Melissa enjoys using a realistic, yet comedic approach to sharing her life experiences as a triple threat – an older, working mother with a special needs child. Melissa is married to Doug and the family enjoys frequent travels, swimming, and doing anything outrageous and fun!
