Melissa is a journalist based out of Eugene, Oregon. Her work has appeared in Ethos Magazine, KVAL, The Register-Guard and MyEugene.org. Currently she is a graduate student at the University of Oregon pursuing a master’s in magazine journalism.
She laughs, she giggles, she orders dessert first, dances and loves ’90s TV shows and music. She is a warm piece of razzleberry pie with a pinch of cinnamon in the crust and two scoops of slowly melting French vanilla ice cream. Sweet but a little tart; comfort with a little bit of an unexpected twist; pairs well with a 4-course meal but can stand alone beautifully as well.
Melissa has been known to ride a pink bicycle in a pencil skirt to get a story. She has a soft spot for wit, humor and food.
