Melissa grew up in Anne Arundel County before making the transition to Eastern Shore living. She resides in Easton where she enjoys weekends at the beach in Ocean City joined by her husband of 25+ years and their son and daughter. When she's not working or enjoying a weekend getaway, Melissa spends time running, fishing, trying new eateries and decorating. She is also involved with her daughter's Girl Scouts troop.
