Melissa was in Guadalajara, Mexico when she decided she had to be a journalist. That was six years ago. In that time, Melissa has worked as a journalist for the Guadalajara Reporter, a content coordinator and social media strategist for the Pan American Game, and a travel writer for Fodor's Travel Guides in Argentina. Her stories have also appeared in the English-language textbook Step In, published by Oxford University Press. Melissa is a self-confessed grammar fanatic. While her at-times ruthless editing may frustrate others, these qualities ensure her work is always of the highest standard. She genuinely loves the English (and Spanish) language and as its advocate, takes critical, microscopic care in all work she delivers. She holds a Bachelor in Communications and International Studies.
