Introducing Melissa

Photo: Jeff Weber "I first saw Mel the same time I noticed Sierra, who were these hot bitches?! I remember seeing her at think tank on Halloween and thinking how beautiful she was. I had no idea how old she was but she has this young, calm soul that you just want to be around. Her energy is contagious and she's always so happy no matter what's going on in her life. Anytime one of her friends has a problem or is going through something, she's always there with her kind, courageous words." Danie

The next thing I noticed was how strong and intelligent she is. One of our first one-on-one conversations together was about spirits and other paranormal activity. She was so well spoken and interesting, I just wanted her to keep talking to me. I used to be so intimidated by her but now she makes me feel so empowered and loved." Ana

Melissa is always one call away to be a helping hand or even just for some nonsense chit chat. It is always a great pleasure to find people like her in life. " Christina

I was so intimidated by her but I’m so grateful she gave me a chance to be in her life. I’ve loved all the times we’ve spent sitting on my couch in face masks watching stupid shit on Netflix and drinking red wine. She is one of the best listeners and gives the best insightful advice I’ve ever gotten. She should be a therapist….really. She has this way of removing herself from situations to give you an unbiased point of view that everyone needs to hear. She’s blunt but has a way of expressing herself that doesn’t hurt the listener. Like Danie said, Melissa’s energy is one of the most contagious energies I’ve ever been around. She lights up the room and makes everyone around her smile no matter what." Jackie

"Out of all of my beautiful peaches, I have known Melissa the longest. As intimidating as she may appear, Melissa is truly the opposite of unapproachable. Her spirit embodies what it means to be selfless. Melissa is the most generous, kind, gentle, humble, open-minded, accepting, loving being. Her external beauty is a million times more beautiful internally, if that is even possible. The respect and admiration I have for Melissa only continues to grow stronger over time, as she has faced obstacles throughout her life that most people would run away from; but Melissa proves time and again that she uses life’s challenges as opportunities to become a more internally beautiful, introspective, generous, and incredibly wise. Melissa’s free-spirit will never be tamed, and she will always be the first one to find the genuine beauty in anyone and everything that crosses her path. There is no one in my life that gives such unbiased, understanding, honest advice as Melissa. She will always be the first one I call no matter what, because I know she is truly listening, understanding, and loving me without judgement. Melissa is the rarest breed; The most unique, intelligent, emotionally sensitive, radiant beam of light in my life, and everyone else lucky enough to be around her." Haley

"From the very first time I met her at Tucson Fashion Week, I have remembered Melissa’s calm spirit in contrast with all the chaos around me at the time. She’s the girl to go to for some sound advice as Melissa is wise beyond her years and has such a good head on her shoulders. She’ll help you summon ghosts with a Ouija board or tell you a spooky story about the haunted houses she lived in as a kid. I find this free-spirited gypsy-ness about her comforting. It reminds me of my mom. Mama Melissa <3" Sierra
