Past Governor Melissa grew up as a Kin Kid, being the daughter of Preston Kinsmen Life Member Jerry Whetham. She began her own Kin career in 2000, becoming a member of the Kinette Club of Saskatoon. Melissa transferred to the Kinette Club of Preston in 2002, followed by a move to the Kinette Club of Waterloo Grand River in 2010, back to the Preston Kinettes in 2013 and is now a member of the recently merged Kin Club of Cambridge (Preston). Melissa has held almost every club executive position, and completed a term as District 1 Governor. Melissa is currently serving her fourth term as the Zone A Kinette Deputy Governor. Melissa has been honored with the Maple Leaf Award, Founders Award for Achievement and District Kinette of the Year. In 2017, Melissa was honoured to receive a Life Membership from the Kin Club of Cambridge (Preston).
In her spare time, Melissa works as a Senior Group Benefits Underwriter for Sun Life Financial. She is also proud mommy to 11 year-old Kin Kid Paxton.
Some of Melissa’s proudest moments in Kin include: being honoured with a Life Membership, being part of District 3’s Telemiracle 25, performing on stage as a part of the Preston Kin Rock Kin Roll Revival and, of course, serving as Governor for District 1.
