Melissa is a respected health professional and graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

In addition to her role as Elected Director with Triathlon Tasmania, Melissa is Chairperson of Karinya Young Women’s Service and the 2020 Intern Director at TasPorts. Melissa is excited to bring her passion for all things triathlon to board level to promote triathlon in the community. Melissa completed her first triathlon as a veteran age grouper at the 2017 Women’s Only Triathlon at Beauty Point. Promising herself never to compete on a mountain bike again, she committed to training hard and enjoyed her first season in 2018/2019 with the Launceston Triathlon Club. The 2019 Noosa Triathlon was her first Olympic Distance and was an exciting start to the 2019/2020 season. Melissa highly values the camaraderie that comes with training and competing with fellow triathletes.

Jason Clark - Vice President (Elected Director)

Jason is Program Leader – Facility Operations at the Doone Kennedy Hobart Aquatic Centre. Jason has only been in the sport of triathlon for five years, but fell in love with the challenge it brings, signing up for his first full Ironman before he’d completed his first Triathlon! Jason prefers the long-distance format – he trains and tries to compete in at least one full Ironman per year. When Jason saw a vacancy on the Triathlon Tasmania Board, he thought he could be of assistance after sitting on the Triathlon South Committee for several seasons. Jason brings knowledge, motivation, a fair playing field (Technical Official) and a laugh to triathlon! Jason loves being involved and helping out where he can.
