Melody FreemanFinancial Analyst
Melody Freeman is the financial accountant/analyst for St. Louis Public Radio (STLPR). She has the honor of processing donations from members, paying the bills that keep the station running, and assisting our finance and administration director with the proper stewardship of STLPR assets.
She enjoys what she does because her work helps to ensure that we continue to inform, educate, and entertain the audience that chooses STLPR over myriad choices available. Being able to work for an organization that she admires feels like having her cake and eating it too.
Melody lives in University City because she can get almost anywhere she wants to go in 20 minutes or less, there is no shortage of trees and parks, and her neighbors say hello. She is inspired by the resilience of people who have endured horrific circumstances and has more heroes than she can name.
A frequent community volunteer, Melody often prepares taxes for those in need. Her free time is spent enjoying time with her family, reading a good book, or listening to music playlists prepared by her husband. Both of her sons enjoy sports, particularly playing baseball. She has visited almost every youth sports park in the Metro St. Louis area and quite a few in other states.The easiest way to describe her family’s relationship with baseball is to Google, “If You Give a Boy a Baseball.” It pretty much sums up her life as a baseball mom.
