Melissa Perkins

Melissa Perkins returns to her East Texas roots after over two decades working in human services across the state.

Melissa has dedicated much of her professional life to helping people with intellectual and developmental disabilities through her leadership and care. She has also served communities by assisting families and seniors with affordable housing and through her leadership as Senior Compliance Analyst with the Texas Department of Agriculture.

The expertise gained in each chapter of Melissa’s career, in addition to her history with the Tyler community, were instrumental in the final selection of Melissa as Breckenridge Village Executive Director, where she will leverage her skillset to continue growing the principles of leadership, stewardship and discipleship on which Breckenridge Village is founded.

This is a full circle moment for Melissa to be able to come to Tyler and serve families in the heart of East Texas.
