Hello and welcome! My name is Mel and I’m so happy you found me! I want to share the more personal side of me, first, because I’m not just hair and makeup. I’m the first American born in my Portuguese family. My parents are truly my heroes and the greatest example of life goals that I could ever ask for. My sister is the kindest human—the best nurse that has ever lived, and I’m so grateful to have her in my life. I married the man of my dreams, together we support one another in building our best lives. I love being goofy, watching food documentaries, having deep discussions, and dancing anywhere and everywhere. My greatest goal in life is understanding true compassion, remaining authentic to my core self, and creating positive responses to the challenges that life inevitably hands out. The journey to trusting myself and the paths I have walked down, have shaped me into the woman I am today, for which I have undying gratitude. Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about me!

Take a look at what I’ve done so far. I hope my work resonates with you and I hope we get to connect. Until then, enjoy and have a wonderful day!
