Melissa Timberlake was home schooled in high school and did not receive a traditional diploma. However, she earned her GED® in 1994 and enrolled in community college. After transferring to Mary Washington College, she earned bachelor’s degrees in both business and psychology in 1998. While pursuing a successful career in real estate, Melissa began taking flying lessons and realized this was the life she loved. Today, she flies passenger airplanes for US Airways Express. Melissa says, "If you don’t try, you will never know what you can do. Getting my GED® was that bridge to everything I wanted to do."
