Melissa and her husband, Chris, have made Colorado their home since 2007. They live in and love the community of Castle Rock, but escape to the beach as much as possible. Together they are currently braving the high school years with their two amazing teenage sons.

Melissa has a passion for serving others and a heart for those in need of a little TLC. She worked as a hospice R.N. before having her children and has always tried to find a way to stay connected to the healthcare field.

You’ll often find her curled up with a soft blanket, a good book, and at least one dog on her lap. She volunteers with a local dog rescue and finds great joy in fostering dogs rescued from puppy mills. Finally, she has a brand new passport on its way and big dreams in her head.
