Mellisa joined News10 as a member of the weather team in January of 2010, but is no stranger to interviewing guests and personally connecting with viewers. Her broadcast career spans over a decade including work as a radio DJ, Morning News Anchor, and Entertainment Reporter.
During her four years as morning news anchor in Boise at KIVI, Mellisa was recognized as "Best Weathercaster" by the Idaho Press Club and was honored with numerous reporting awards.
She also received two Emmy Awards; one in 2008 and the other in 2010 for "Good Morning Live," Idaho's first Emmy Award-winning morning show. Mellisa was also a DJ for KQXR radio in the area and represented the state in the 2000 Miss America Pageant, as Miss Idaho.
Having grown up in the Treasure Valley, Mellisa attended Albertson College of Idaho before graduating from BSU with a Bachelor in Arts in Theater. She also attended the Oxford School of Drama in Oxford, England where she specialized in Shakespearian Acting. Her education allowed her to travel and study in a number of countries including Greece, Turkey, Italy, Great Britain and Ireland.
After receiving her degree, Mellisa moved to Los Angeles to work as an actor in TV, Theater and Major Motion Pictures and also worked for a time for a major record label and the Hollywood Bowl. She eventually left Hollywood behind to pursue her career goals in broadcasting.
In 2009, Mellisa was recognized as one of Idaho's 'Accomplished and Under Forty' by the Idaho Business Review, an award based not only on professional achievements, but community service. Mellisa looks forward to bringing her passion for helping others to the Sacramento area…and ‘connecting’ with the community.

Mellisa and her family, (husband, Greg, their little girl, Abigail and loyal dog Clyde) have fallen in love with Sacramento and are proud to call it home.
