Miss Melora Barlowe has a checkered past. Suffering from OCD as a child which she eventually managed to overcome, for the most part, she was interested in psychiatry and decided to pursue that field in college, where she became certified as a counselor. She found work as a private institute where she discovered that she had little patience for most of her adult patients. Always loving children, she decided to try the work at schools, which she discovered she loved, as she felt she was actually making a difference. She took the job at Westside Valley Academy as soon as it was offered. She carries herself with a little more glamour and is the gossip of the school. She seems to know just about everything, and has ways of getting information that she doesn't disclose. She does, however, take her actual job very seriously and loves the children, offering help whenever she can, even to students after they've graduated. When it comes to her coworkers, however, she is not above using her looks and sexuality to get what she wants. She was hurt in the past by the man who she considered to be the love of her life, so she does not look for a serious relationship, just something that she considers fun and satisfying. She doesn't speak of her own past with this man though she speaks volumes about the past of others.
