She holds a bachelor’s degree in social welfare from the University of Kansas, and has a background working with foster children and children with special needs. Melissa and her husband, Matthew, live in Aledo with their two daughters and their dog, Aspen. She loves jazzercise and the Kansas City Chiefs.


  • Melissa and her best friend tried out for The Amazing Race once. Considering the awful things contestants have to eat, she’s glad they didn’t make it on the show.
  • Melissa is TERRIFIED of snakes and can’t even go into the MOLA exhibit at the zoo.
