Since an early age, Mel has adored music, theatre and storytelling. She was born on Long Island to two native New Yorkers who then picked up and moved to Roswell, GA where she grew up with her sister and family. Mel graduated with a BFA in Acting from The Conservatory of Theatre Arts at Webster University in 2014 and has been living in NYC to pursue this wild dream of hers ever since.
Outside of performing, Mel loves a good craft. Any. Craft.
She also loves to travel; discovering new places and new people. She has been lucky enough to visit over 15 countries spanning across 5 continents. She is also an avid coffee drinker, Yoga with Adrienne fan, plant mama and loves to take pictures with her 35mm.
Thanks for stopping by!
"Speaking of super powers, how did they fit that giant voice in that tiny actress?"
"I have to say I was severely disappointed hearing Maria's understudy was going on for the performance, but that feeling did not last long. The girl who played Maria was fantastic! She was warm and engaging and believable. The affection between Maria and the children was authentic. Her voice was melodic and pretty. So moving. I'll have to look for the girl who played Maria as I hope we will enjoy her again!"
