Growing up in Las Vegas, NV, Melissa decided to join the military right after high school. She served in the U.S. Army for 6 years, where she spent most of her time in Fort Riley, KS, but also completed a tour to Afghanistan and a rotation to South Korea. After her service, Melissa returned to Las Vegas where she began her transition to civilian employment and gained a variety of experiences within the administrative field. By the end of 2019, she made the decision to move to Houston, TX in hopes of establishing a better lifestyle for her and her kids, which ultimately brought her here in January 2020. After first working within different areas of a meat warehouse, she realized it was time to seek more of a career path instead of “just another job.” This ultimately lead her here to SAS, LLC, where she is hoping to build a long-lasting career.
During her spare time, Melissa loves to spend time with her 3 kids, DJ, Dawson, and April, either at home or exploring the outdoors/Houston area. She also attempts to make as many trips to Las Vegas as possible to visit family.
