My name is Melissa Fullerton. I grew up in rural Montana in a small town called Florence. I graduated from the University of Montana with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. I married my high school sweetheart and we moved to Colville, WA where he began his career as a forester with Boise Cascade in 1992. I found work with an accounting firm in Colville shortly after arriving in Colville. In May of 1993 my husband accepted a job for Boise Cascade in Elgin, OR so we relocated to La Grande. I began my career with Boise Cascade in November of 1994. We have been in La Grande since then. We have two children, a son and a daughter that we are very proud of. My husband is still a forester with Boise Cascade and I have since moved on to Woodgrain as their lumber division controller.
