Office Manager

Melody is the Office Manager of Brook Trout Dental. She was born in South Texas and is a graduate of Howard Payne University in Brownwood with a Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism. Melody met Dr. Weinhandl in 1996 in Denver while he was a resident of Denver General Hospital, an extremely busy trauma hospital. In fact, many of their dates consisted of them spending time together at the hospital as he was on call every fourth night. They married July 5, 1997 at University Hills Baptist Church in Denver and moved close to Edmonton, Alberta where Dr. Weinhandl practiced for five years before moving back to the United States. Melody handles staffing, insurance, payroll, taxes, and completion of governmental forms that keep the office running smoothly.

After graduating from high school, Tayah said that she was uncertain which career was of interest.
