Melody Hunter-Pillion is a journalist, historian, teacher, traveler, and public servant. Melody has worked as a broadcast journalist and media relations professional whose career spans video, writing, public relations, news, health care, higher education, and travel.
Melody never selects a travel destination without first exploring its history. As a native North Carolinian, she is still fascinated by the history she discovers about her home state and also places abroad. While earning her Master’s at Duke University, Melody began to develop a deeper appreciation for history.
She is currently the Director of Communication in the North Carolina Office of State Human Resource with the Office of the Governor. However, she continues to work in higher education as a communicator and most recently a Lecturer in Journalism at N.C. State University. Melody is also a doctoral student in North Carolina State University’s Public History program.
