Administrative Assistant Melissa Barr spent six years teaching various preschool age groups before graduating from California State University of San Marcos with a BA in Elementary Education and becoming a full day kindergarten teacher. When the teaching budget cuts hit California, Melissa decided to open up a home daycare, become a home real estate transaction coordinator, help advertise for her friends’ saddle and tack shop, and to spend more time with her own children.
Today, she manages all of LMS’s administration. She lives in Rancho Bernardo with her husband, 14 year old daughter, 13 year old son, 2 golden retrievers, 3 cats, and sulcata tortoise! Melissa loves spending time with her family, watching her son play baseball, riding horses with her daughter, watching polo with her friend, reading, and going to Disneyland.
