By working overnight in group homes, she was able to put herself through school and earn her B.A. in psychology. Melissa has studied acting at the New York Film Academy and other studios in New York and Los Angeles. She has been in many films including "Felix and Meira," "Blackstar" and "The Visit."
Melissa produces videos for Diamond Lighthouse and EZ Kosher. Additionally, she produced and created a pilot for the webseries "Marry Me." Melissa is excited to be a part of Malky Squared Productions and to produce films that are close to her heart.
