Melissa first began in residential real estate over thirty years ago after graduating from the Hockaday School in Dallas and from Wheaton College in Massachusetts. She resides in the Park Cities but had a cosmopolitan upbringing. She has lived in Utah, Georgia, Florida, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and New York, in addition to England, France and the Bahamas. Despite this exposure to many different places she firmly believes that the Dallas/Fort Worth area offers everything one could possibly require for a superlative lifestyle. She is actively involved in fund raising for the SPCA of Texas, in addition to which she volunteers for Meals on Wheels. For relaxation Melissa enjoys cooking, travel and scuba diving.
