GET TO KNOW MELISSA

What was the biggest risk you have ever taken?

At some point, I decided that I needed to “run away” from my life and experience a completely different
culture. So, I sold my things, loaded a backpack, and took off alone to live in Costa Rica. Did I mention I
barely speak Spanish?

Skydiving is another big one for me. The first roll out of the plane was cathartic…I highly recommend it!

What are your hobbies?

I am currently learning to play the Hammond organ in a rock power trio.

Where would you live, if it couldn’t be Austin?

Outside the US on a beach….pura vida. OR somewhere in the country surrounded by nature, lots of space, the simple life…and NO traffic!

What is on your bucket list?

I would like to travel to Italy and Thailand.

If you played hooky for a day, where would we find you?

If the weather is nice…sitting outside on a patio somewhere enjoying a cocktail. If the weather is not nice…curled up on the couch watching movies.
