Melanie Eyre is an ordained Interfaith Minister who brings a wealth of experience to One World.  Long a student of the world’s many diverse faith traditions, she is committed to interfaith dialogue and understanding as a pathway to peace.

Two of her children have special needs, and Melanie and Deborah are active in special needs programs in North Fulton.
