Melodie McFadden, Counselor
Melodie McFadden grew up in Eastern Oregon with aspirations to be a singer, a professional roller-skater, and a veterinarian.  The only one that panned out was the singing.  She has been a worship leader at various churches around the country and in Japan for the past 15 years.  She is currently the Worship Director for Bellevue Foursquare Church. She has two children - both in college.  Her son, Cole, is a junior at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and her daughter, Maya, is a freshman at the University of Idaho. Having focused most of her adult life on being a stay at home mom, Melodie took the opportunity to finish her bachelor degree, then began a Masters in Counseling Psychology through Northwest University in Kirkland, WA.  Interning at Eastside Academy is a perfect fit for Melodie.  She has a love for teens and enjoys being a mentor and supporter of their goals and aspirations in life.  She’s looking forward to learning and growing right alongside the students at Eastside Academy in this 2017-2018 year.
