Melissa was born and raised in Maryland but after yearly visits to see her aunt in Florida, she knew that The Sunshine State where she needed to be. She fell in love with St. Augustine during a college visit in 1990. She obtained her Communications and Marketing degree in 1994 from Flagler College. That education has helped her throughout her careers in surf product sales, sports management, and finally, real estate.
When it was time to put family first, Melissa worked part-time as an assistant to two top-producing agents at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. It was during this time that she learned the business from the ground up. In 2018, as her youngest left for college, she earned her Realtor license. Melissa quickly earned a monthly award as Top Producer in the St. Augustine office and later was named Rookie of the Year for the entire company. You will find her to be compassionate, knowledgeable, savvy, and calm.
