Melissa is an award winning interior designer, budding yogi, mother of dogs, and lover of cheese-burgers. She has lived all over the United States and abroad, now claiming Richmond, Virginia as her home. Melissa works at KSA Interiors on exciting projects for corporate and healthcare clients, making sure cubicles are the right size and clinic waiting rooms have proper signage. She is passionate about working with design students. Seeing students evolve into designers, and being a (small) part of that, is a thrill for her and she can often be heard coaching them on the finer points of life, including where to get the best doughnuts, no matter what city you’re in.
