Melissa is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and student pursuing her BS degree in Dietetics. Melissa has always been active since a very young age. She took tap, ballet, and jazz classes, figured skated competitively with the ISI for 8 years, and ran track in high school. Near the end of high school, Melissa struggled with depression and substance abuse and ended up gaining weight. It wasn't until she was about 23 that she really decided to transform her life. She started running, making healthier choices, and lost 30 pounds on her own. After contacting a local trainer to train for her first bikini competition, Melissa trained hard for over a year and competed in two competitions; All South, where she placed 16th, and South Florida, where she placed 8th. After seeing herself transform, Melissa realized quickly that she wanted to help empower other people to do the same. In August 2015, Melissa became a Certified Personal Trainer with NASM. Now she is continuing her education and pursuing her bachelor's degree in Dietetics.
