Melissa Hoster

Database Manager

Melissa decided to hang up her pastry chef hat after creating delectable desserts for 15 years and transition into a career as Database Manager at the Foundation in 2015. She is thrilled to help benefactors make a heartfelt impact and to also know firsthand the positive impact it has on Vail’s community.

An outdoors enthusiast, Melissa loves the natural beauty of Vail and the ever-changing seasons; the like-minded, compassionate community; the world-class events and the welcoming atmosphere to people from all over the world. A perfect Vail day for her is floating on the river under the warm sun or hiking on a crisp fall afternoon. It all sparks a little magic, allowing her to relish in the many small gifts life has to offer.
