Employee Engagement Consultant. Adventurer, traveler, and sports addict.
Melissa grew up playing all types of team sports, such as basketball, volleyball, field hockey, swimming, and many others. But it was soccer that was her main passion, playing the sport competitively throughout her childhood and for her university team.
In addition to athletics, Melissa has always enjoyed adventuring and exploring different cultures, foods, and landscapes. It wasn’t until she went to Sweden for grad school, though, that she caught the travel bug. Since then, Melissa has been to five out of the seven continents and plans to travel to over 100 countries before she dies. Her biggest accomplishment was climbing and summitting Huayna Potosi, an almost 20,000-foot mountain peak in Bolivia.
In her spare time, Melissa enjoys hiking, camping, skiing, travelling locally and internationally, and cooking. You can always find her in the mountains on a blue bird day.
