While growing up, Melody Harkness wanted to be a nurse like her mother, so working in an industry that supports nurses is equally fulfilling for Melody. In fact, even after eight-plus years at RNnetwork, Melody has no plans for a career change. A culture of integrity, coworkers who are positive and supportive, and consistent opportunities to grow keep Melody very happy.
Every morning, the first thing Melody does is “make her rounds” to check in on her team and see how everyone’s doing. It’s this style of warm leadership that lets each member know they matter to her as individuals.
Outside work, Melody’s world revolves around her family. She and her two daughters enjoy all types of activities together and even love doing things together at home. They motivate her to be her best, which is why she decided to pursue a master’s degree. “I’m dedicated to working hard to set an example and to give them the kind of education that will set them on a path to success in life,” she says. One day, Melody hopes to backpack through Europe and skydive in Vegas with the Flying Elvises.
