Born in Monterey, California in 1986 and raised in Salinas, Melissa moved to San Diego after high school and later graduated from beauty college. She was styling the hair of a local news reporter, who suggested she try modeling. She did, but also focused on one day getting her SAG card. Melissa modeled but also booked roles on infomercials and local commercials. She moved to Los Angeles and in 2015 finally got her SAG-AFTRA card.
Her trademark abdomen tattoo is actually designed to cover a scar suffered from a near-death car accident as a freshman in high school. Her back was broken and she was bleeding internally, doctors had to operate. Turning pain into art, Melissa has flourished. Featured on magazine covers, music videos and studying acting with The Groundlings, her goal is to appear in a James Bond film. She also enjoys boxing, briefly becoming a bouncer at a Los Angeles nightclub.
“My main priority now is acting and branding myself even more. I have been making a lot of connections here in LA, and my goal is to have my own reality show since my life is very crazy and interesting.”
