I'm Melissa, a millennial who is still trying to figure this whole "being an adult" thing out. I've always had a passion for music, especially hard rock/heavy metal so I'm truly stoked that I have a job where I get to share that. I was born and raised in the Evansville area, and I think we have a great thing going here. I love that I get to help highlight and promote our community. I'm a huge advocate for rescue animals, it's something that's important to me, partially because I've got two rescue dogs of my own, Wrigley & George. A few random things about me, I'm a big fan of the Chicago Cubs (I know after seeing I have a dog named Wrigley, you're shocked), I'm a powerlifter, and I love all things horror/Halloween.
