A life long animal lover with a charitable heart, she was a regular volunteer with Operation Kindness and Pug Rescue. She often rescued lost or stranded animals and made sure that they found their way to the appropriate rescue societies.
Melissa loved and studied arts and channeled that passion into creating amazing crafts: handmade cards, hairbands, tutus. She had fun and a well-reviewed store on Etsy and frequently donated proceeds of her sales to the Pug Rescue. She made the most adorable gifts for her cherished nieces who love her very much.
