Melissa is a native of North Carolina and a UNC Chapel-Hill alumn. Her first ever internship was in marine mammal husbandry (dolphin training), and her latest job position was teaching science in a Mississippi Public School System.

Having moved 4 times in the first 4 years of life as a Navy wife, she faced unemployment and endured the job hunt over and over again. With little guidance and even fewer personalized career resources, she realized there was a lack of reliable career information on the web.

She has now combined her love for teaching and her interest in learning about people’s careers and skills by delivering a resource to students and job seekers with firsthand accounts from real people in real jobs.
