Ever since she was 4 years old, the world of fashion intrigued Melissa. Growing up in a family with her great grandfather being a barber and her grandmother being a beautician, Melissa knew the beauty industry is where she wanted to be. In 2001, following her dreams she started an apprenticeship only to find out that her body could not handle the physical demand that comes with the profession. However her love for the trade and her feeling at home in a salon never went away.
Years later she found herself as a client at Rau Salon and became fond of the fun and friendly staff. It did not take much time at all to be lead into the salon atmosphere again. With her positive attitude, great energy and passion for helping people, Melissa is back in a salon supporting her coworkers and the clients.
Outside the salon, Melissa loves shopping, shoes, cooking large meals, being with her family, crocheting, fishing and relaxing up in the Northwoods.
