Biography

Melissa is part Sicilian, Native American and part French. Melissa spent most of her childhood clowning it up at school and impersonating her beloved family. After graduation, Melissa spent three years as an assignment editor at Atlanta's CBS affiliate, while acting in commercials and films whenever possible. Steady acting work in the South-east's flourishing commercial market quickly meant 'adiós amigos' to the station and 'hellooooo' to full-time alien.

Since then, she's landed countless national and regional commercials (over 50), including her current campaign as co-spokesperson for S & K Menswear. Notable television roles include a reccurring role on the WB's One Tree Hill, a co-staring role on the WB's Dawson's Creek, recurring character Melissa McCall on MTV's Teen Wolf, and the CBS miniseries Shake, Rattle, and Roll. She's been in over half a dozen independent films and can be seen in theatres this Summer in the independent drama Stateside.

As co-owner of The Goods Inc., Melissa co-hosts and performs in The Goods Variety Show and is active in The Goods Youth Foundation. She is proud to make kids laugh while showing them how to find "The Goods in themselves". Melissa spends her down time as a rock star. Well, maybe just a rocking' person. "It seemed the next best thing".
