Melissa realized her passion for performing when she landed the role of the Cowardly Lion in her elementary school’s portrayal of “The Wizard of Oz”. From that point on, Melissa became heavily involved in the theater arts in high school and went on to join a longform improv team at UC Santa Barbara. Having recently graduated and starting work in the advertising industry, life was going great, but Melissa knew something was missing. After a quick Google search of “best improv teams in the OC”, Melissa decided to audition and give it a whirl. Melissa became a member of Laugh Chance in September 2015 and cannot be more excited for the laughter, hilarity, and camaraderie that is to come!
