MORE ABOUT MELODY
Melody and her husband are avid supporters of their alma mater, SMU. When not cheering on the Mustangs, she can be found watching sports, reading, traveling, and spending time with her son. Melody supports charities that empower and assist women and children, and is a long-time Sunday School preschool teacher. She has visited all 50 US states, and is muscle car aficionado —owning both a ’67 Mustang and ’69 Torino.
For me there are two things about Sendero that make us unique – we truly live our core values in everything we do and we place our people first. Both of these motivate me every day to ensure that we provide growth opportunities for our people, support them in their passions, and continue to coach and grow the Sendero team in alignment with our why.Melody Mattox
