Home Melissa Newberry, Early Interventionist

“Hi! My name is Melissa Newberry, and I am from San Antonio, Texas. I recently graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor of Science in Public Health. I fell in love with the state of South Carolina and the University when I was just 11 years old while on a road trip. When it was time for myself to apply to college, the only option that stood out to me was USC and I am so glad I stuck to my gut. Along with knowing where I wanted to advance my education, I also knew what I wanted to pursue a career in. I have always had a passion for working with kids and I realized there are so many pathways to work with children and make a positive impact on their lives. I am so excited to be able to work with families and children to make a positive impact all around!”
