Melody Lynch, BA, MA, CMP

Melody has always been fascinated with language and its evolution, so it’s not a far leap that she ended up pursuing a career in communications. After a stint in Leeds to obtain her Master of Arts in 2009-10, she returned home to begin her career in journalism, producing various radio and television programs before crossing over to the world of public and media relations. Since then, she has filled a handful of communications management roles with non-profit organizations, worked on many advocacy campaigns and with various Indigenous institutions. She’s also the Vice President of the International Association of Business Communicators, Saskatoon Chapter. When not at work, she can be found reading, cross-stitching, or binging Netflix with her two fur babies.
