Melissa Biliter coordinates digital communication and platforms for LiKEN projects. She is an advocate and facilitator for educational and occupational opportunity who is delighted to join LiKEN, an organization built on core values compatible with her own heart. Melissa’s education and experience span a broad swath, from the precision of laboratory tests to the wild spark of small children embracing engineering through LEGO. During her four years in the US Air Force, as an Engineering Assistant, she worked on projects in Bosnia, Hungary, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait, as well as Florida, Louisiana, and South Carolina. Creative expression holds a central place, and Melissa enjoys painting, drawing, recreational mathematics, sewing, knitting, and writing. Her family members are charter members of Red Oaks Forest School, and she has also gained certification in Project WET, Project Learning Tree, Project WILD, and Focus on Forests. Melissa lives south of Lexington with her husband, and five children.
