Sports and extracurricular activities have always been a huge part of Melissa’s life. Growing up a competitive figure skater Melissa spent a lot of time in skating rinks. In the winter she loves to skate along the Rideau Canal and hit the slopes on her snowboard, and in the summer months you can usually find her on a baseball diamond playing softball. Melissa also loves fashion, music, pop culture, spending time with her family, friends and her dog Zoe.
