Branch Manager
Plaza Branch
Walla Walla

Melody started with Baker Boyer in 2011 as a Personal Banker for the Eastgate Branch with one year of prior banking experience. After three years, Melody was promoted to the Plaza Branch Assistant Manager. In 2020, she was promoted to Plaza Branch Manager.

A Walla Walla native, Melody graduated from WA-HI and went straight into the work force where she spent nearly 30 years in the retail industry. She was employed by several local stores, eventually working her way up to the position of General Manager of Gottschalks department store. She found that her experience in customer service and attention to detail gained in retail translated easily into banking.

Melody enjoys spending time with her friends and family including her husband, daughter, and dog. Melody and her husband are on an amazing adventure of turning a school bus into a motor home to take on long trips. She loves music and tries to go to as many concerts as she can. She also loves to travel. While she is not currently involved in any community programs, she spent 17 years volunteering with the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
