Melissa’s love for travel began on a two-week European vacation she took with her mother shortly after graduating college. She remembers being awestruck by the immense beauty of Cinque Terra, Italy, and the stunning elegance of Paris, France. Since then, her love for travel has only continued to grow.
Melissa believes, “to travel is to live” and helping someone see the world, while being part of that process, has made her fall in love with travel in a whole new way. As a Shameless Tourist Travel Advisor, Melissa is eager to help you plan the experience of a lifetime, without the worry and stress that can be paired with travel preparation. Having visited Europe numerous times, she can plan the perfect trip you desire.
When Melissa isn’t planning trips or traveling herself, she enjoys, Pilates, spin cycling, snowboarding, great food & wine, cooking and hosting friends and family in her home. She lives in Laguna Niguel, CA with her husband and their Hungarian, Vizsla.
