Melissa Kaufmann

Training and Compliance Specialist

“It doesn’t matter where you come from, where you live, or how much money you have in your pocket, we want you to get [the care] you need AND for it to be a good experience.”

Melissa Kaufmann sees her role as a Training and Compliance Specialist is “to engage with the agencies, to support them so they can better provide these high-quality services to clients.” She came to Every Body Texas from a clinic in the Title X network, giving her a special perspective on the work. “That experience helps me visualize, shape, and create programs that are really meaningful to individuals because I have that intimate experience working with the individuals receiving services.”

Melissa came to Every Body Texas with a vision of improving the lives of individuals at a larger scale. When she counseled clients, she could help individuals on the local level, but by supporting providers, she sees her impact happening at a state level – aiming towards system changes.

Originally from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Melissa says, “I come from a country where healthcare is a right, it doesn’t matter where you work or how much money you have. I’m really thrilled to be working for an agency that’s helping to provide these services to individuals.”

Melissa has a Master of Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin and lives in Austin. She has followed in her grandfather and great grandfather’s footsteps and is a talented jewelry maker as well.

Serving Every Body since 2019.
