Melissa Patterson

Software Engineer

Melissa received her undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia and then commissioned as an officer in the United States Air Force. After spending four years traveling the world as a laser physicist, she decided to get into software engineering as a civilian. She loves dissecting websites and applications to see how they work or how they can be made more efficiently.

Melissa is beyond thrilled to be part of an altruistic company with an incredible development team. When she’s not hacking the mainframe, you will most likely find her outside or playing video games, but check outside first.
