Melissa is a Waukesha native and is raising her boys in the same neighborhood she grew up in. Her friends call her Mel. She’s a single, full-time working mama to three boys (12 and 8) and an angel. Mel lives on coffee and Diet Coke. After the boys are in bed, she spends her nights making lunches, doing dishes and crocheting to crime TV. She loves trying new things and laughing until her sides hurt. Mel is daughter, sister, mother, auntie, godmother, coworker and friend … but most of all she says, “I’m just messy me.”
