    Hi! I'm Mel. I moved to Dallas with my husband and 3 kids from Sydney, Australia at the end of 2013. When I'm not on the sidelines of the soccer field cheering on my oldest son, my family loves to get out and explore all that Texas and the USA have to offer. We love road trips and camping and all things travel and get away as often as we can. I keep busy with volunteering at my kids' schools and in my community and love working with Plano Moms!
