Patti began her career with TTA when she was 9 years old and swam for the team for 9 years.  During that time she was lucky enough to travel to many wonderful places around the country and see many successes.

Patti started coaching in 1990 with our beginner team that was called the “water wonders” now known as the Novice team. She has always enjoyed working with the younger Aquettes and watching them mature and grow into elite athletes!

Patti attended Kenmore West Sr. High School and Buffalo State College and has a BS in Elementary Education. She has been married to her husband Ed Melber for 28 years and have 4 children. Their older daughter, Trisha, is an alumni of TTA and their younger daughter, Grace, is currently swimming and competing for TTA.  Both girls have had a love for synchronized swimming and have carried on the TTA traditions.

Patti currently coaches the 12/under swimmers and she is the teams travel and business manager.  She also enjoys being the teams Meet Manager when we host local competitions.  Patti is a level 3 Zone figure official and a level 2 certified coach by United States Synchronized Swimming. She is a proud recipient of the 2011 East Zone Coach of the Year Award!
