  • Description

    Hi there, my name is Melisa! I was born and raised in the Pacific North West with a heavy cultural influence from my families native land of Bosnia. I have a strong passion for traveling, meeting new people and discovering new cultures!

    - I graduated with a degree in Personnel Psychology and Human Resources with a Business Minor.

In the last couple of years I have transformed my passion for travel into hospitality which has allowed me to meet and manage a diverse group of people, write and operate within budgets, and use my creativity to streamline procedures and processes. Hospitality will forever hold a special place in my heart and I absolutely love it!

  • What else ...

    I enjoy the outdoors - hiking, going on walks, snowboarding ( I must admit I'm still learning! ), paddleboarding, kayaking, and I love to try new things!

    Staying healthy is extremely important to me both inside and out! I fuel my body with nutritious foods and I enjoy working out regularly.

    I am hoping to stay in one location for more than a couple of weeks, potentially a couple of months! I think this is the best way to fully immerse myself into the culture.

    Lastly, one of my favorite parts of my day is waking up and drinking my coffee. I'm the type of gal that wakes up early to make sure I have enough time to enjoy my morning cup of joe! There's just something so special about a cool morning, hot cup of coffee, being alone in your thoughts and planning for your day!
