Besides her film and commercial work, she has produced short films and a TV pilot and wrote a screenplay which was produced for a local competition. Over the years, Melissa has been a singer and keyboard player with a local band, continued her dance training and volunteered as a reader for Recording for the Blind, an adoption speaker for CSS, a tutor for Michigan Literacy Partners and delivering for Meals on Wheels.
