Melissa Thomas

Office and Finance Manager

I’ve 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 little girl who keeps me very active, I spend a lot of time in the swing park and soft play. I love spending time in West Wales and I love eating out in lovely restaurants. I enjoy being 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 make you feel happy. It could be a new skill, baking a cake, reading a book. We are all creative every day in our own little ways!

What is your number one self-care tip?

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