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 ┬áthat 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!
