A little more about Melissa…
Outside of being a mom to my little boy, Boone, I enjoy reading and learning anything new. My hobbies are hiking, cooking, and working with my hands. I used to educate restaurant staff about liquor, beer, and wine and still enjoy learning and trying new things in that industry.
