Melissa has been working in service journalism for years. Since breaking into commerce content in 2019, she's worked as a writer and editor on everything from hands-on product reviews to roundups.
She originally started out at Reviewed.com, part of the USA TODAY Network, where she learned everything there is to know about topics like what makes a good computer for a student (it's all about affordability, battery life, and functionality) and boxes to check off when looking for a new portable charger (customer ratings and reviews will always be brutally honest).
Currently, Melissa is a health and wellness editor. Her byline has appeared in online publications like Healthline, The Daily Beast, Hellogiggles, and Greatist.
