This is a photo of Melissa Rackliff and me as she accepted our coveted Spa Babe award in 2002. Oh, how young we looked. What a difference 12 years makes! Back then, Mel was one of our rising Guest Relations team members – smart, reliable, talented, and personable – with a great attitude to match. Fast forward to 2014, and I am pleased to announce that Mel has been promoted to Spa Director. 

During her many years of work at TallGrass, Melissa has shown her skills in a variety of positions from our first Sage Room coordinator, to Guest Relations Team Leader and then Assistant Spa Director. It has been inspiring to watch her learn and grow consistently to be ready to take on the high level of responsibility and challenge as the manager of our company.

Mel graduated from Ohio University in 1995 (the year TallGrass opened!) with a degree in Fine Arts. She is an accomplished artist, and has a wonderful family – husband Jason and two children, Noah and Jaxon. 

We are thrilled to have Mel in this new role. She will be out and about in the spa and I know she’d love to meet you and say hello. And, of course, she’ll be front and center at our Transistions14 Hair and Fashion show! We hope to see you there!
