Melanie Schottenstein is a native of Bexley, Ohio. After attending Bexley Schools for her elementary years, Melanie transferred to and graduated from Columbus School for Girls. Melanie then attended Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, where she graduated with an undergraduate business degree in Marketing and Management, and a minor in Psychology. After moving back to Columbus, Melanie worked at The Huntington National Bank as the Head of Internal Communications.

Melanie's understanding and influence extends beyond the Bexley community where she resides. Since becoming a parent, Melanie has enjoyed serving the Columbus community. Over the years, her family's philanthropic and service focus has been raising funds and awareness for the Community Shelter Board, carrying on the mission of her late father-in-law, Mel Schottenstein who believed it was, 'unacceptable for a person in our community to be without food or shelter even for one night.' Licensed as a Realtor since 2007, Melanie is pleased to be affiliated with Street Sotheby's International Realty team where her high-level organizational and communication skills can be highlighted within the company's unique boutique atmosphere.
