Melissa Gongora was born and raised among the rolling hills of Holmes County, Ohio. After graduating from Faith Christian Academy and studying at Rosedale Bible College, she returned home and for many years worked in the family business in various roles and also spent 14 years providing transportation to the Amish community. Melissa joined EQUES in January of 2023 as a legal secretary. Along with Melissa’s skill set in an office setting, she hopes to bring comfort in a situation that can sometimes be uncomfortable, and to one day further her education in the legal field.
In her free time, Melissa enjoys spending time with her three children; encouraging their dreams, playing card and board games, and lately, they have rediscovered a love for Legos. She also enjoys traveling, spending time with extended family, reading, listening to music, scrapbooking, and watching Netflix. Through every mountain and valley of life, Melissa’s faith in Jesus has carried her through.
