Meet Our Speaker

Many know Melissa Voetsch as an on air WTVG 13abc news reporter with an infectious smile and incredible talent for sharing a story. Some are lucky enough to know "Mel" as an amazing friend, advocate, and mom to daughter Madeline 22 (above right), son Cole 18 (middle), and Gabriella 13 (not pictured). 

Mel has always approached new challenges with strength, courage, and humor. This was never more true as when she received Cole's diagnosis of autism when he was 3 years old. Inspired by her son’s accomplishments, Mel not only took on the challenge of making Cole's life the very best possible, but began working diligently with the Great Lakes Collaborative for Autism (GLCA) to make an impact on others’ lives in Northwest Ohio. Through her work with the GLCA, she has helped raise more than $1million that has gone directly into local programs and services. 

We invite you to share an inspiring evening and truly get to know, Mel Voetsch.
