In August, 2004, she returned to KCBS as a fill-in anchor and began co-anchoring the mid-day hours with Rebecca Corral in May, 2008.

Raised in Pasadena, Melissa has studied acting and spent several years performing in San Francisco and Berkeley. She now sings, both on her own and with the cover band Sober Nixon. Melissa enjoys going to the theatre and live music shows, reading, and spending time at a good spa. She also writes a column for the monthly neighborhood newspaper, The Northside San Francisco.
