She also worked as a reporter/fact-checker at ESPN The Magazine and her writing has appeared in Marie Claire, Miami New Times,, and more. Melissa is a Massachusetts native but spent half her life in South Florida. She loves all things Boston and the Florida Gators, and has an argument about how she can love both the Red Sox and the Marlins that will knock your socks off.
