My name is Melanie. I live in Northern Kentucky and have lived here most of my life. I

have three sweet dogs that I really enjoy spending time with. My goal is to join the IBD

community, through Girls With Guts, and show support for other girls with IBD.


How did you learn about Girls With Guts? 

I found Girls With Guts when doing an internet search on ways to get involved in the IBD

community. I really like that it is an organization that supports girls and provides

resources to those in need.


Why did you decide to volunteer with Girls With Guts? 

I decided to volunteer, because I am passionate about being part of the IBD community.

Volunteering allows me to be supportive of other girls with IBD and spread helpful

information and ideas.

When you are not volunteering with Girls With Guts what do you do with your time?


I am a full-time student, so that is what I spend most of my time focused on. I also like to

play with my dogs, spend time outside, and go on walks!
