Melissa attended Eastern Connecticut State University where she earned her BS in child and youth psychology and a CT teaching certification in early childhood education. During her 4 years at ECSU, she participated in many intra mural sports including volleyball, floor hockey, and co-ed softball. After college, she earned her MA in elementary education from Southern Connecticut State University and is currently employed as a kindergarten teacher in Clinton. Melissa continued her active lifestyle by becoming a certified Les Mills BodyCombat instructor. She loves teaching bootcamp, boxing and HIIT classes. Melissa has recently taken up running. She has completed 2 half marathons and will be running her third in September. Melissa completed her first Ragnar relay race along the Cape in 2014. She enjoyed this experience so much that she went back for more and completed the Ragnar Trial New England Race in 2015. In 2012, she completed her first OCR at the Mount Snow Tough Mudder and recently completed her first triathlon in September 2014. Melissa’s classes are intense and high energy with lots of motivation and support.
