I'm a wife and mother of a engery filled little boy. I've worked in a variety of positions involving children. Everything from a non-secure detention facility in Niagara County, a youth group home in Buffalo and administering drug & alcohol prevention programs to school aged children in Niagara County. I am a part time instructor at Niagara County Community College where my area of expertise is juvenile delinquency. I like writing about social issues pertaining to today's youth. I also write crime stories in Western NY and have recently starting writing on addictions as I am a full time addictions counselor in Niagara Falls. If you have questions, concerns, or topics ideas, please contact Melissa by email.
