Melissa Thomas
Office and Finance Manager

I have worked for Tanio (formerly Valley and Vale Community Arts) for over 15 years. I have a degree in Theatre and Media Drama and I worked as a professional actor for a number of years before joining the team at Tanio.

I have a 5 year old little girl who keeps me very active, I spend lots of time in the swing park and walking our lovely dog Brian. I love spending time in West Wales and I love eating out at lovely restaurants. I enjoy pottering in the garden, baking, watching live comedy and visiting the theatre especially watching musicals!

What advice do you have for people to bringing creativity into everyday life?

My advice would be to do something you enjoy and makes you feel happy. It could be a new skill, baking a cake, reading a book. We’re all creative everyday in our own little ways!

What is your number one self-care tip?

My number one self care tip would be to take time out for yourself whether it’s 10 minutes having a cuppa, seeing friends or going for a walk. Never be too hard on yourself and remember to breathe! Ahhh
