Introducing Melissa

Cheers! My name is Melissa.  I was born in Astoria, Or, then moved to Pendleton, Or when I was eight.  What a change in climate!

I met my husband during my second year of college.  My friends and I were at a dance, one of them shoved me into him and said, “here, meet him.”  We’ve been together ever since.

We have a son named Drew.  He is very funny, smart, thoughtful and caring.  Right now he delivers pizza.  Some day he would like to be a screen writer.  He just announced to us about two weeks ago that he was getting married.  Wow!

Some things about me:  I have wanted to be an actress since I was a little girl.  Never happened though I have been in many plays.  Even did a little extras work many years ago.

Between 2003-2010 I was let go from four jobs.  That did not do much for my self-esteem.  I didn’t particularly like those jobs but they helped pay the bills and it was difficult to be shown the door so many times (and don’t let it hit my big butt on the way out). In 2012 I owned and operated a food cart.  It did well for a while but burn out and Groupon did me in!

So here I am at LCC trying to find something to do that I feel passionate about.
